The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to make it’s debut early next year. Right now, it’s still too early for purported images to surface on the Internet, but that doesn’t stop tech experts from trying to make educated predictions.
Rumors for Samsung Galaxy S5 release
Rumors indicate the Galaxy S5 could be introduced in March, like earlier this year. Samsung typically skips introducing big products at CES and MWC events. It’s highly unlikely it would return this year. The South Korean tech giant also gives each device a full year before introducing something new. We can expect this device to hit stores in either April or May. For now, the Galaxy S4.

Galaxy S5 features
Although the rumors for the Galaxy S5 are still relatively rare, the few rumors out there involve a certain feature. It’s speculated the camera on the next flagship phone will feature a 13-megapixel camera sensor. This feature will make it easier to take photos in low-light as well as minimize blurriness in images with Optical Image Stabilization. GottaBeMobile added, “Samsung says that it will start mass producing the camera in early 2014, a sign that it could come equipped on board a flagship Galaxy smartphone in the days ahead. This announcement came after rumors suggesting that the device would be carrying a 16MP camera sensor on board with, yes, OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). We lean towards the former, considering it’s an official camera sensor, but what’s clear is that Samsung is taking strides to improve the sensors inside its devices and that should translate into an improved camera inside the Galaxy S5 next year, whether it’s 13MP or 16MP.”
The S5 could also feature a metal body instead of polycarbonate. There are also reports that it could feature a water and dust resistant design similar to the Galaxy S4 Active. We have to wait at least half a year more before Samsung’s next phone arrives.
