Starting with the million dollar question, the report claims that similar to what Apple did with the new iPhones, Samsung will be launching two variants of the Galaxy S5 — one built using plastic materials and the other using metals. Not surprisingly, the metal variant will be the more expensive one retailing somewhere around 800 Euros (Rs 67,000 approximately), while the plastic variant will be slightly cheaper at 650 Euros (Rs 54,600 approximately). The metal variant could also be Samsung’s first device to be christened under the rumored premium “Galaxy F series”.

Talking of specifications, the list confirmed by SamMobile is consistent with what has leaked in the past few weeks. The Galaxy S5 will feature an AMOLED display (most likely 5.25-inches) with a resolution of 2,560×1,440 pixels, 16-megapixel rear camera, and will be powered by either an Exynos 6 processor or a Snapdragon 805 SoC depending on the region. The report further mentions that, the flagship will run on Android 4.4 KitKat.
Additionally, the report also claims that Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S5 mini and the Galaxy S5 Zoom, soon after launching the flagship device. The Galaxy S5 mini is expected to be unveiled in June, and feature a Super AMOLED display and run KitKat, while the Galaxy S5 Zoom would be announced in May, sport a 4.8-inch qHD (960 x 540) display and run KitKat as well.
