The Samsung Galaxy S4 was released a few months ago but many fans were disappointed by the lack of upgrades, so now they are patiently awaiting the arrival of the Galaxy S5. There are many who predict the the fifth generation will be very different from the fourth generation.
There have been plenty of predictions and possible mock-up designs. Some of these designs are more classic with traditional elements, and others show a more bold look. Recent rumors show that the next generation Galaxy S smartphone will be made from carbon fiber rather than metal, although it’s still a very real possibility that Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) will opt for the sleek shiny look of metal.

Galaxy S5 May Offer Even More Flexibility in Design
There is also a possibility that the phone might feature a more flexible design. A few months ago, Product-Reviews.net offered their thoughts on a possible flexible phone, “We’re not knocking the Galaxy S4, because it truly is a remarkable phone, and shows even more of the iPhone 5’s weaknesses. However, consumers are always in need of more, and so we were not surprised to see a Galaxy S5 concept appear almost the same time as the S4 was released, which made use of flexible display technology. However, this concept looked to be several years away, and so could not be taken too serious, unlike a recent patent filing, which showed the Samsung Galaxy S5 curved display possibility.”
Galaxy S5 Has a Lot of Fans
No matter what Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) has in mind for their next smartphone, it will surely be a hit. Just like the Apple iPhone, the Galaxy S line has a lot of fans who want more. It’s highly unlikely that either company will disappoint their fans. Later on this year, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will release their iPhone 5S, which is predicted to be a minor upgrade to the iPhone 5. Next year, Apple is poised to release the iPhone 6.
