The Samsung Galaxy S4 already debuted this year and fans are still awaiting the arrival of the Galaxy Note 3. Even with all the new phones in the market, many Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) fans are still anticipating the Galaxy S5.
Galaxy S5 Should Be Stylish
Right now, we don’t know a whole lot about the next generation Galaxy S smartphone but we do know that it will be the best selling Android phone on the market. We didn’t see very many changes with the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone, except for the fact it was a bit thinner and had some design changes to give it a more “upscale” appearance. Many of the South Korean tech giant’s rivals utilize premium materials such as glass or aluminum in their construction. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) should take a cue and enhance their design with more impressive materials. According to Android Geeks, “HTC’s One flagship is the perfect example that a good-looking smartphone is the key to success, receiving positive reviews when it came to its design. Sammy will definitely want similar reactions for its Galaxy S5, so expect some major design and construction changes for its next-gen flagship.”
If the Galaxy S5 won’t look like it’s predecessor, then what will it look like? There’s no way to know yet but there are heavy predictions it will be made from either aluminum or metal. Android Geeks added, “Even though the Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) officials said that the plastic smartphones are easier to produce in large numbers, I am confident that the South Koreans will change the materials used for the Samsung Galaxy S5 as its position as leader of the Android smartphone market is threatened by the premium high-end smartphone developed by other companies. In the same time, an aluminum Samsung Galaxy S5 will be capable of stealing some of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s customers, as the design remained the only trump of the iPhone.”
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s biggest competitor, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), is expected to release the iPhone 5S some time this fall.
