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.
Very often it’s difficult to pick a perfect Android phone, you might be having a blazing fast S4 but might envy the sheer metal body of the HTC One. After almost years of consumer disliking and ranting, the “plasticy” Galaxy phones get a hefty cousin.
The Korean reporter, ETNews reported that Samsung plans to make a high end metal smartphone: the Galaxy F. The phone will be decked out with a metal exterior, and should be launched around the same time as the highly awaited Galaxy S5.
We do want to see Samsung do this since long, how premium? With time, will we know.
CES 2014 is just around the corner and Samsung has already started teasing their new Exynos chip that would be unveiled at the event.The tweet also included an image (see above), with a clear indication that on January 7, 2014, Samsung will make some sort of Exynos announcement – the tagline used is “Flying even higher in 2014.”
That could mean that their new processors could be a logical “level up” and hence have 64 bit support? Considering that they had officially announced that they are working on one, we could very well see a 64 bit Exynos 6 ?
While 2014 bought Samsungs Pro-like NX camera to the masses, it’s not really something to go for at the price. The S4 Zoom too did not take off that well since they failed to be good camera’s at first!
Last month, however, an image turned up that seemed to be snapped by Samsung’s EK-GC200 – and the first Galaxy Camera was the EK-GC100. The successor here that we are dealing with may note be called the “Galaxy Camera 2″ but the model number indicates the same , it would be a “Digital Camera With WIFI 802.11abgn+BT LE4.0+GPS receive+NFC passive.”
A new report from South Korea says that Samsung has started mass-producing 5.25-inch displays for the upcoming Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone. DDaily reports that the Samsung Galaxy S5 would come with a 5.25 inch AMOLED display with a very high 2560*1600 resolution – that is 2.5k!
Various other sources say that Samsung would launch this device earlier than expected so let’s just wait for the CES and MWC 2014.
Now we are hearing some big news, as we speak Samsung merges its digital imaging division with the one responsible for its smartphones and tablets. We clearly don’t have to look further to find out how bad Samsung wants better optics on it’s Smartphones and vice-versa.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and NX are clear examples and snapshots of which direction Samsung is headed in. It will although take a while before we can appreciate this merger as we speak new and improved technology as a result of this.
“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.
