Samsung’s next big Galaxy smartphone may arrive sooner than expected. A new report from Korean-based ET News speculates that Samsung may start production for the Galaxy S5 phone in January with a possible unveiling in February. The Mobile World Congress 2014 event is set to take place during the latter half of February.
The highly-anticipated new phone is rumored to feature a 64-bit chip, 3GB of RAM, 5-inch Super AMOLED display with 2K resolution at 560ppi, a 16 megapixel camera with optical image stabilizer, and the Android KitKat operating system.
Galaxy S5 body
The very same report also claims the phone will come in either a plastic case or a metal body. The tech leader has yet to make an official statement on the matter, so there is no way to confirm whether or not these rumors are true. ET News added, “The Korean monolith has the ability to make just about anything on a massive scale as quickly as it likes and likely has no qualms with cannibalizing sales of its zillions of other smartphone models, including the Galaxy S4.”
Many Samsung fans were disappointed with the Galaxy S4 smartphone. They wanted a new phone with different features and specifications; instead, their last phone was more like a rehash of the generation before that. This is why there is a lot of speculation that the South Korean tech company will release the Galaxy S5 on the early side.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 update
A recent report from GottaBeMobile also elaborated, “If the new high resolution camera sensor modules do make it by the end of 2014, there is a possibility that these sensors would be readied in time for production of the Galaxy Note 4. Samsung usually updates its Note phablet series in the fall. If instead Samsung isn’t ready with the camera sensors until early 2015, these sensors could likely debut on the new Galaxy S6 smartphones that will be appearing on the market by spring of 2015.”
Samsung has a lot of expectations to live up to.
