Samsung Galaxy S5 screenshot shows on-screen buttons

19 February, 2014

The Samsung Galaxy S5 leaks are a steady, mostly consistent stream, but a screenshot of the AnTuTu benchmark brings some conflicting information.

First off, there are on-screen buttons visible in the screenshot, which suggests the Galaxy S5 will be the first in the line with no hardware buttons. Most rumors until now agree that there will be physical buttons, the thing they can't settle on is whether there will be a fingerprint scanner.



The info from the screenshot also shows the screen as 1080p, rather than the accepted QHD. This is the Exynos 5420 version of the phone, but we doubt Samsung will split the Galaxy S5 by chipset and screen.

The rest of the info shows 3GB of RAM (to match the Note 3), a 16MP camera (we've already seen two photos) and 2160p video recording (even though an image of a retail box pointed to 1080p).

Also note the blue icons in the status bar the phone runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat, which changed the icon color to white, but the new, flat TouchWiz may be changing things around. Blue was the pre-KitKat standard for status bar icons. The on-screen menu button is also strange.

Screenshots can be faked in more ways than one and even if it's real, apps don't always properly detect the hardware, so take it all with a pinch of salt.
