We appear to be ticking down to the inevitable release of the next Samsung flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5. That means we first have to wade through a froth of rumors well before the actual product ever gets announced (likely in March or April). When it comes to the S5, there are some fun possibilities on the table.

One suggestion is that there will be two versions, a plastic-body version and a premium metal-body version. That's potentially good news for fans of metal phones who like the durability.

Another interesting upgrade would be the rumored rapid-charging battery. Smartphone battery life is a big recurring complaint these days. If this rumor pans out, the S5 would have a 20 percent greater capacity in the same footprint as its predecessor, and it would also charge up in less than two hours.

Perhaps the splashiest rumor involves a fingerprint sensor, which certainly conjures up images of the iPhone 5S. A 2K display (and plenty of power to feed it) is also on the speculation table.

Now that you've contemplated the rumors and created your own personal wishlist for the upcoming Android device, which of these features do you most hope pans out? Vote in our poll and share your thoughts in the comments.
