In the document issued by KGI containing the detailed specifications of the Galaxy S5, the device is said to come in 2 variants — Prime and Standard — with each variant having a Global and Korean model. A lot of the rumored specs we reported last week are present in the leaked spec sheet, including the 5.2 inch WQ HD display (for the Prime variant), 16 megapixel camera and fingerprint reader. The two variants will sport exactly the same features, except for the screen resolution, processor and RAM. Based on this, the “Standard” variant will sport either a Qualcomm quad core processor or a Samsung Exynos 5422 octa core processor with 2 GB of RAM and a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 423 ppi.

GalaxyS5 Prime and Standard specsThe Prime variant on the other hand will sport a Samsung Exynos 5430 octa core processor with a 3 GB of RAM and a screen resolution of WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) at 565 ppi. Contrary to earlier reports, both variants will sport a 32-bit processor instead of a 64-bit as well as a plastic body, instead of a metal chasis.

Samsung Galaxy S5 specs:

  • octa core Samsung Exynos 5430, 32-bit 20nm process (for the ‘Prime’ variant)
  • quad core Qualcomm MSM 8974 AC, 32-bit 28 nm process or octa core Samsung Exynos 5422, 32-bit 28nm process (for the ‘Standard’ variant)
  • 5.2 inch touch display (WQHD for the Prime and FHD for the Standard)
  • 3 GB of RAM for the Prime, 2 GB for the Standard
  • 16 megapixel main camera with PDAF support
  • 2 megapixel front facing camera
  • 3D gesture support, fingerprint biometrics support
  • 2850 mAh battery
  • Plastic build

KGI kept mum on the release, but word has it that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be unveiled next month during the Barcelona 2014 Mobile World Congress event, with an official launch months shortly after. [via]
