The GooPhone S5 is really very much alike to the Galaxy S5 and that might be a good or bad thing depending on whether you like or hate the Galaxy S5. On the specs side you get very different specs from the GS5 such as a 2GHz MediaTek 6592 octa-core CPU. Other specs include 2GB RAM, a 5-inch 1080p display, a 13MP cam with LED flash, 5MP front-cam, 2800 mAh battery, dual-SIM support, 32GB, microSD, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, 3G support and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Those specs really aren’t bad considering that one gets all that at just $300 unlocked! Would you consider this phone?
A trend that Apple started has now sort of become the standard amongst flagship devices – golden and silver phone bodies. Just yesterday we saw a golden render of the All New HTC One and today comes Samsung on similar lines.
GSMArena obtained a snapshot of the Vodafone’s inventory system, which confirms that the mobile carrier will indeed be selling a gold version of Samsung’s upcoming flagship: the Galaxy S5.
The second most interesting fact is that they even went ahead and announced that component 3432 1.8t will be “used in the next Galaxy smartphone, which is expected to be introduced later this month.”
So what is Samsung betting on for their Galaxy S5’s camera? The reflector-integrated flash component is designed to provide a wider field of view, which should provide improved photos in daylight as well as night. Combining the new flash with rumors of the Galaxy S5’s 16MP shooter and possible inclusion of ISOCELL technology could mean that the phone already is a better photo taking device !
Speed, Outdoor, Curiosity, Fun, Social, Style, Privacy, Fitness and Life are the nine attributes that will characterize the Galaxy S5, according to Samsung, coupled with that, all these icons have 5 written as a superscript on all of them. Samssung’s VP was heard quoting that their approach for the next set of devices would be “back to the basics” and it could very well be translated in their new UI.
Several apps including S Voice and S Health expected to be preloaded on the Galaxy S5 have leaked in the past weeks, and they too received a flat, utilitarian overhaul.
Samsung is apparently planning to repeat the same again, we’ve been hearing about this for quite a while now. According to the tipster @evleaks, the Samsung Huron looks like that just that it would be running the Windows Phone 8.1 OS so don’t expect this device to launch anything near end of Q2. On close inspection we did notice that there wasn’t the mandatory camera shutter button here.
Samsung Russia just unveiled a new Galaxy version that takes noticeable design cues from the Note 3. Besides all the buzz, there is actually nothing new that this device brings it’s the exact same internally.
Dubbed Black Edition, the new Galaxy S4 comes with the faux leather finish that Samsung introduced on the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 10.1 (2014) back at IFA and extended with the NotePRO and TabPRO line at CES this year. Raise your hands all 5 of you who will buy this phone!
The EXIF data reveals the resolution of the original file was 5,312 × 2,988 (about 16MP), but given the 16:9 format of the shot, it’s possible that the camera used to take it had a 21MP resolution in the standard 4:3 format. The model number according to the EXIF information is SM-G900V. The only assumption in this case is that we would like to believe the metadata wasn’t tampered.
Eldar Murtazin, a well-connected blogger with a relatively good track-record when it comes to leaks, just tweeted that the Galaxy S5 will launch on February 23, ahead of MWC 2014 Barcelona.
Murtazin claims the Galaxy S5 will be announced on Sunday, February 23, at 6PM, and that it will be in stores by the end of April.His tweet goes as follows : “Samsung Galaxy S5 launch – 18.00. Barcelona. 23 February. Price the same. Launch – end of April. Specs – u know them 🙂 new touchwiz ;)”
Samsung has moved away from MWC to release their new flagships recently, but what do you think, does it make sense for Samsung to return to trade shows for their launch?
The reason stated is that Samsung found it not mature enough for deployment. “Among the different types of biometric sensors that Samsung is testing for its Galaxy S5, the tech giant will go for fingerprint authentication rather than unintuitive user experience of iris recognition” said the unnamed source.
Samsung is rumoured to bring a fingerprint scanner built right into the display but it is not yet confirmed that this type of technology would be seen.
SamMobile as always has got their hands on the Kitkr ROM before it’s official rollout and here is what the first impression suggests : users get a new keyboard, updated lockscreen, and that status bar battery indicator has a new color scheme. Performance also sees a minor tweak, at least according to some preliminary benchmark tests.
As Samsung usually takes its time rolling our these updates, we are not really positive on getting one any soon.
