Though we’re expecting to see the Galaxy S5 unveiled at Samsung’s event at MWC, new info may hint at just what we’ll be looking at. A rendered image from a trusted source hints at a slightly tweaked hardware design, which could make the S5 a bit more modern. Then again, it looks a lot like another handset we’re fond of.


Though Move Player, the source of this info, has a track record of calling Samsung’s shots pretty accurately, we’ll keep in mind it is just a rendered image. There is no reason to believe Move Player has their hands on an S5, and they don’t cite any particular source for this knowledge. We’re sure they’ve method to the madness, but accurate? We’re best served holding off on excitement.

The render, which you can see below, shows a more squared look. Move Player also notes the Galaxy S5 will be a bit thinner, and offer different overall dimensions. They also speculate the new device will have more screen taking up the front. The goal, it seems, it to update hardware as well as software — Samsung’s Galaxy S4 was far too similar to the S3. If this render is accurte, it would set the S5 apart from the rest.

Then again, it looks a lot like the Nexus 5 to us. Though Samsung has apparently minimized the hardware button up front, the slimmer profile and squared sides look a bit too LG. Move Player has been correct about these things in the past, which lends credibility to their render — but it’s not official. When it is official, which we expect to be next week at MWC, we’ll be there to bring you all the info about the handset.
