Flickr has actually usually confirmed to be a wise leaker of electronic camera information referring to unreleased smartphones, and with initial screening likely happening before the statement of the Galaxy S5 next week, the Yahoo-owned photo discussing site aims to have its first snaps taken using the evasive device.
