Galaxy-S5-conceptNot this again! Are we really still talking about Samsung Galaxy S5 specs and features, with so many seemingly credible insiders having spilled their guts already? Apparently, yes, and apparently, there’s still wiggle room.

So what, both Sam Mobile and Eldar Murtazin got their “intel” wrong? Believe it or not, it’s possible, as The New York Times jumps into the fray with a rather shocking prediction: the Galaxy S5 won’t sport a Quad HD, or WQHD, or 2K display after all.

They surely mean the “Standard” version, not the Galaxy S5 Prime. Sorry, but at this point, I’m genuinely doubtful of my own shadow. NY Times actually says nothing of two or more S5 variants, so it’s not out of the question we’ll get just the one.

With “run-of-the-mill” Full HD resolution, a mystery “high-performance” processor (Exynos 6, Snapdragon 805, S800 MSM8974-AC?), and sans eye scanning. No surprises on that last part, as it always sounded a bit on the futuristic side of things, but back to screen res, let’s underline 1,920 x 1,080 pixels is not so bad.

Actually, according to some, raising the ante to 2,560 x 1,440 makes no sense, as the difference in brightness or color reproduction would be minor. Almost unnoticeable. Meanwhile, battery performance would only wane, so what say we don’t make a big deal out of this story? Besides, it’s far from official.

Sure, the multiple Pulitzer Prize-winning publication is normally trustworthy and dependable, but so is Sam Mobile, and half a dozen other sources suggesting Quad HD is in the cards. Good thing February 24 is around the corner.
