Samsung has a new flagship smartphone coming soon and new details are emerging about what the next smartphone will be packing. It’ll have a sharper, larger 5.2-inch display according to Bloomberg, better battery and camera, and possibly both eye- and fingerprint-scanning technology.
The fingerprint scanner report comes from Sammobile. The site confirmed that Samsung’s Galaxy S5 will feature a fingerprint sensor, which is able to register up to eight different fingerprints for use in performing different tasks, from unlocking the device to launching specific apps, as well as opening special personal folders and enabling a new Private Mode that unveils hidden files and apps.
As for the other features reported by Bloomberg, the display is said to be 5.2 inches diagonally, which is 0.2 inches larger than the current Galaxy S4′s screen. It’s also said to be “sharper”, which presumably means it’ll get a higher resolution than the current 1080 x 1920.
Details of the improvements to camera and battery tech aren’t included in the Bloomberg report, but previous reports peg the rear camera at 16MP, and battery capacity rumors range from a fast-charging 2,900 mAh lithium ion battery to a more capacious 3,200 mAh.
