Samsung’s Galaxy S 5 is seemingly going to be announced next month. Eldar Murtazin, the man who correctly claimed the Galaxy S 4′s announcement date last year, says that Samsung will be holding a “pre MWC” launch on February 23 in Barcelona. He even gave the exact time — 18:00 local time. As for the price, he says it will remain exactly the same as the GS4. And the release date will be sometime in April.
Murtazin includes “new touchwiz” and specifications that he claims we know already. The new Touchwiz likely packs the previously leaked home screen and Google Now-like service. Murtazin adds that “Galaxy S5 software is a next step in touchwiz evolution.” For consumers that stayed away from Samsung due to Touchwiz, this could be bring them in.
When one follower on Twitter asked if Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 would be packed inside with a 2K display, Murtazin responded with multiple smiley faces, saying “or” with another smiley face. So yes, the Galaxy S 5 is coming sooner than we think.
