Months ago there were rumors suggesting an iris scanner, but it seemed that Samsung were not ready to introduce the tech in 2014. Instead the company has focused on the much more developed fingerprint technology, which has been already confirmed several times. Another application found on the Samsung Galaxy S5 is named ‘3DtourViewer’ and though it is not important, the app reveals phone’s screen resolution – WQHD also known as QHD which translates into 2560 x 1440 pixels.
Though we found the resolution, the screen size is yet unknown. Previous leaks point to a screen around 5.2 inches across the diagonals. Despite the upgraded display, the Galaxy S5 won’t be much bigger than its predecessor as the new model will employ slimmer bezels.
