The Galaxy S4 is just a few months old, but the rumor mill has already begun working on the Galaxy S5.
The latest report claims that the Galaxy S5 will sport a brand new 16-megapixel camera, an upgrade from the S4's 13-megapixel sensor (and matching the Galaxy S4 Zoom's 16 megapixels).
The South Korean site Electronic Times News said today that the phone's camera module is currently in development and features optical image stabilization (OIS) like the LG G2.
The camera will be ready for the Galaxy S5's launch next March, the site reported.
That OIS tech was reportedly meant for the Galaxy Note 3 (which is pretty much confirmed for September) originally, but supply chain issues kept Samsung from implementing it in time.
Availability of the auto focus actuator in which the stabilization tech is integrated will improve early next year, said the site, making it the perfect time for Samsung to adopt it en masse.
Samsung will reportedly finish development on its 2014 flagship's camera by the end of this year, and just in time.
The rumor mill doesn't have much else to say about the S5 just yet, though we did catch a possible glimpse of it last month.
