Display: 5in full HD Super Amoled (1920 x 1080) 441ppiBigger, brighter and with a better resolution, it should be one of the stand out panels. However, there was no mention of the display being indestructible as rumoured.

Storage: 16/32/64GB internal + microSD slot (up to 64GB)Pretty standard stuff here with users able to choose how much internal memory they require.

Camera: 13-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front (full HD recording)The main camera has been upgraded from 8-megapixel to 13-megapixel so should deliver a boost in image quality. The front-snapper also offers full-HD recording capabilities.
