Well, folks, there is your Samsung Galaxy S5.

Samsung managed to keep this device hidden for months, but with only hours to go before they officially unveil this 2014 flagship phone, it has been outed. 

While we do not have all of the details just yet, we can grab quite a bit of info from all of these images. We’re looking at a similar form factor to the Galaxy S4 and Note 3, with a size landing somewhere in between each. The back features a textured/dotted pattern, and the Menu button has been swapped out for a multi-tasking button.

The display looks closer to 1080p rather than QHD, though we’ll wait for official word on that. The camera is said to be 16MP (with some special sensors next to the flash?), there is a fingerprint scanner (likely in the home button), and the bottom USB plug has a cover, which means we should have a waterproof phone on our hands.

In terms of software, the UI seems to have been updated quite a bit. The camera experience looks somewhat simplified, there is an option for a “Download Booster” for dual LTE and WiFi downloads on 30MB or larger files, the lock screen is updated, and you can say “OK, Google” from home to launch into Search.

Check out the images below and let us know what else you are seeing.

We’ll have live and official coverage at 2PM Eastern.
