“I think at least seven or eight [companies] will launch a phone with a touch sensor in 2014,” Johan Carlstrom, Fingerprint’s Chief Executive Officer, told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday.
Fujitsu, Pantech and Konka have already made deals with Fingerprint to incorporate this technology in their future Android and Windows phones.
Some claims have looked to a January launch announcement, today’s rumor could be just a little more conservative, describing a Galaxy S 5 that could go up for sale in February or March.
A metal frame is something that Samsung is looking forward too this time with rumours of a cheaper Plastic variant of the Galaxy s5 too.
Today, as we speak, 11 Months later Samsung has unveiled the successor to the original Galaxy Grand which brings an even larger, 5.25-inch display, with an HD resolution of 1280 by 720. The processor still clocks at 1.2GHz, but, this time, it has four cores, and RAM has been bumped to 1.5GB, while internal storage has been kept at 8GB, though expandable via microSD card.
Deals on Apple products are definitely the ones to look for while there are many other tablets, laptops and accessories up for sale.
The realistic part of this concept is that, O2 predicts a 64-bit octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, a 4,000mAh battery, a 16-megapixel rear camera capable of shooting 4K video, and a 2K HD 2560 x 1440-pixel display. The imaginary device also runs Android 4.4 KitKat with a redesigned TouchWiz UI on top.
While there is a very high chance of some specs to make it to the final device considering the bytes that come from Samsung every now and then, we still have to keep our fingers crossed for many things.

Samsung today announced their two upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 Gold Edition devices which many have accused Samsung from stealing from Apple, but then again, maybe they thought of it themselves.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Gold Edition comes in two variants, one in Gold & Brown and one in Gold & Pink, curiously enough it also comes in two tone colors just like the brand new Apple iPhone 5S, so was Samsung inspired by all the iPhone 5S leaks? The new devices seem to be heading to the Middle East first and it remains to be seen whether or not Samsung will be bringing it elsewhere.
With Samsung following suit, are we in for a golden variant of the HTC One, Nokia Lumia 925, Sony Xperia Z1 and LG G2 as well?
Samsung created quite the fanfare yesterday when they finally took the covers off of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which sets a new standard for the company and more importantly their competitors, to follow and embrace. The Galaxy Note 3 is most definitely quite a device, but what really sets it apart from competing devices in the oversized smartphone category? No, it’s not water resistant, nor does it pack an embedded projector or light saber, but it does have 3 key offerings that sets it apart from its competitors.
4K Video Recording
For some users it may not be much of a game changer, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the second smartphone in the world capable of recording 4K high definition video, definitely making it quite a competitor to the likes of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Additionally it records 1080p video at 60 frames per second and 720p video at a whopping 120 frames per second. That is quite something and it’s sure to inspire other manufacturers to adopt the feature in future devices as well.
Free Evernote Premium
Although it may not be significant to many. Evernote has grown to become quite popular among most modern smartphone users. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes with a free one-year Evernote Premium subscription, worth $45. Users get 17 times more uploads per month, which amounts to 1GB over the usual 60MB. Additionally users can make offline notes, a feature not available in the free version. Evernote also integrates with Samsung’s S Note application and expands the application’s allowed uploads size. It sounds like quite a bargain to me!
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the first smartphone to feature USB 3.0 connectivity allowing for much faster data transfers if connected to the appropriate USB port. Apple has their lightning adapter and Samsung now has USB 3.0, although it is important to note (pun intended) that USB 3.0 is still much faster than Apple’s USB 2.0 based Lighting cables. Not only will you now be able to transfer files to the Galaxy Note 3 at lightning (pun intended) speeds, but you’ll also be able to access USB 3.0 drives thanks to the USB On-the-Go feature. Samsung may once again be paving the way for other device makers to join in on the fun!
Of course there are a lot more nifty and interesting features inside the Galaxy Note 3, such as the fact that despite having a larger display compared to its predecessor, it is actually narrower than the Galaxy Note II. It is also Samsung’s very first smartphone to be launched with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. It will also come with a composite leather rear shell instead of the usual plastic shell, but it’s likely to wear and tear easily.
The Galaxy Note 3 allows dragging and dropping content between applications as well as having more than one instances of the same application open. The Galaxy Note 3 will launch in over 140 countries worldwide on September 25, 2013, although it’s only set to reach the US markets in October!
