    Update: We forgot to mention, Samsung said the device would launch in multiple countries in April.

    Update 2: After a tip from combatmedic870, we did some digging. Apparently, the new processor in the Galaxy S5 is the Snapdragon 801. We updated our story specs below to reflect the correct info. Although Samsung has yet to officially release the info, we found evidence of this from a couple of different sites.

    Our quick presser shares all of the relevant official features and functions of the Galaxy S5, but many of us are hardware junkies and want to see the list of the innards. Here's the hardware spec breakdown for the Samsung Galaxy S5:
    • 5.1-inch FHD Super AMOLED display (1920 x 1080 resolution)
    • 2.5GHz MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 Quad-Core Processor
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 16/32GB of memory
    • microSD support up to 64GB
    • 16-megapixel camera with UHD 4K video recording at 30fps and various software features
    • 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera
    • LTE Cat 4 (150/50Mbps) support
    • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac HT80 MIMO (2×2) Wi-Fi
    • Bluetooth 4.0 BLE/ANT_
    • USB 3.0
    • NFC
    • IR Remote
    • 2800mAh battery
    • IP67 Dust and Water Resistant
    • Fingerprint scanner
    • Heart rate sensor
    • Android 4.4.2 KitKat with various software features on top including Ultra Power Saving Mode, Download Booster, S Health 3.0, Quick Connect, Private Mode, Kids Mode

    Not as impressive as I thought it was going to be but the finger print scanner is a nice touch. Who needs a heart rate sensor on their phone? Put it on the gear fit or whatever you dont need that on the phone that's dumbest thing I have ever seen...

    Well the most powerful device announced is the Sony Z2. I don't see it coming to the US for a while though

    This is kind of a disappointment. It's specs don't even match the Note 3(ram).

    Yeah... its internals aren't actually as "cutting edge" as the new Sony Xperia Z2. Sure, the internals don't necessarily equate to a good user experience, but I am surprised on how "subdued" this Samsung flagship is this year.

    I would have to agree with everyone, I am seeing an overwhelming "meh" with this phone. Definitely not one I am going to run out to get. Will see what comes of the Nexus 6 first.

    Well....I was hoping for the snap 801 strictly for faster nand(if they were to put it in there in the first place.)
    The nand is really the last thing that needs to be fix on our decices.
    We shall see what the HTC one mk2 has up its sleeves.

    Yep... HTC has a chance to wow us, but if the rumors are true, it won't be much different than the Galaxy S5. I suspect the phone with the most impressive hardware specs for the beginning part of this year will be the Sony phone. It's too bad that won't necessarily translate into sales for them.

    Ive read in quite a few places this does have the snap801
    Maybe the specs aren't as bad as it seems. Besides the 2g ram

    If they optimized the experience like motorola did then spec is where it needs to be. Remember Kit Kat is already a lighter software than JB. I think we are seeing the spec ware curve here as now we are needing to see companies take advantage of what they have which is where the features come in at.

    Well if rumors are true that Motorola will be making it I am definitely on board. I like the s5 but not really a fan of Knox. Knox is really good for people needing a secure business phone but not so much for those who like to tinker.

    @combatmedic870 was correct. The original source where we got the Snapdragon 800 processor for the Galaxy S5 was incorrect. I was able to corroborate from three different other sites that the processor in the SGS5 is the Snapdragon 801. This means its CPU and GPU are on par with the Sony Xperia Z2, but it's RAM is still lower at 2GB instead of 3GB. Of course, the SGS5 actually has a better water and dust resistance than the Sony, so that's something worth considering as well.

    Overall it seems the two devices are about on par with one another. Of course, the popularity of the Samsung products is off the charts whereas Sony mobile devices are not nearly as successful.
