Samsung overwatch website SamMobile presented us with a juicy leak which firmly suggests that a "premium" version of Samsung's Galaxy S5 flagship phone is in an advanced development stage. It is arguably the most detailed look at the unannounced, and previously denied device to date.
The leak begins by reinforcing the rumors that the Galaxy S5 shipped with a 1080p display due to production problems with the QHD-equipped version. Originally, the S5 was being prototyped with a 2K display, but this version was abandoned in its third revision, which is pretty early in the phone's development cycle. It took ten revisions until the S5 was given the "okay", and seven of these had the 1080p display. This serves to explain why the phone's last year leaks pointed towards a QHD screen, but as the announcement date neared, a 1080p display was to be found in all rumors.
We know that Samsung's strategy is to develop and release a multitude of smartphones and tablets each year in an effort to cover all available and emerging market niches in sight. Given that, pressure from LG's upcoming G3, and how close the company actually got to a 2K smartphone before it settled for less riskier technology, it is entirely predictable that Samsung will find the time and place to release the Galaxy S5 as it may have originally intended - with a QHD display.
The latest leak hints towards that, and lots more. For starters, the addition of a previously unfamiliar Exynos chip is suggested in some models. This is the Exynos 5430, which has four Cortex-A15 cores running on 2.1GHz and four Cortex-A7 cores running on 1.5GHz, an ARM Mali GPU clocked at 600MHz, and a display controller trained to handle the 2K display's many additional pixels.
The Exynos 5430 also has a HEVC (high-efficiency video coding) controller that already supports up to 8K UHD video (8192x4320) playback. It also boasts a dedicated audio encoding, decoding and processing processor that Samsung named "Seiren".
Let's hope, that June brings this monster into our hands!
