Samsung has rolled out a fresh teaser image offering a little more insight into what to expect for its highly anticipated Galaxy S5 Android smartphone.
The image appeared on the Samsung Mobile Twitter account and featured the hashtag for its Mobile World Congress (MWC) Unpacked keynote. The teaser image featured speed, outdoor, curiosity, fun, social, style, privacy, fitness and life icons.
There is currently no official information about the Galaxy S5 and its internal specifications, but some have taken the speed icon as a sign the Galaxy S5 will run using an octa-core processor, or feature superfast 4G connectivity.
Others have taken it as further evidence that Samsung will release premium and standard versions of the Galaxy S5. The rumours suggest the standard version will feature a plastic chassis and run using an octa-core processor but won't have LTE connectivity. The premium Galaxy S5 is expected to boast a more robust metal-frame quad-core processor and have 4G support.
The premium and standard Galaxy S5 rumour makes sense as Samsung is yet to upgrade its Exynos series of octa-core processors to feature 4G support.
The privacy icon is seen as evidence of Samsung plans to expand improve the Galaxy S5's security features and sell the smartphone with Knox pre-installed. Knox is a security feature designed to secure devices at a hardware level. It offers users similar sandboxing powers to BlackBerry Balance, letting IT managers set up separate work and personal areas on the device.
Knox was only sold via a channel model until earlier this year, when the company chose to pre-load it onto its Galaxy Tab Pro and Note Pro series of business tablets.
Samsung's MWC Unpacked keynote will take place on 24 February. Check back with V3 then for live coverage of the event.
