Samsung Galaxy S5 might arrive in two variants after entering mass production in January
The same insiders tip some new specs
New Galaxy smartphone means new romors. The Korean site EtNews has just dropped the bomb that after the slow sales of Samsung Galaxy S4 the company is planning a new strategy. The new rumors deny the previous speculations that the next flagship Samsung Galaxy S5 will be released really soon in January. According to the Korean site, insiders are claiming that the upcoming device will enter a mass production in January in order to get ready to launch sometime between March and April next year. The publication claims that the amount of units that will enter production in January will start at 800,000 and by the end of February will reach 6 million units.
And that’s not all; the rumors also suggest that Galaxy S5 will arrive in two versions. Samsung must be way ahead of schedule, since the design and specification have already leaked in addition to the recently spotted metal frame. Please keep in mind that nothing has been officially confirmed and the information comes from anonymous industry sources.
The latest details have surfaced that we’re talking about a 5-incher with flexible OLED display with 16-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing one. Furthermore, Samsung Galaxy S5 will adopt an ARM powered 64-bit processor. Unfortunately, no leaks on the cores, but we suspect at least a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon to suit the phablet. The device will offer 3GB of RAM and I must say that if Samsung have decided to adopt the MT6592, their next flagship will have better specs than my laptop. Putting my beloved laptop aside, the leaks tip a 4000mAh battery as well. As for the software, Android 4.4 KitKat enters the scene to co-operate with Samsung’s exclusive TouchWiz. The metal frame claim doesn’t drop out with the newest rumors, so we will consider it a fact, at least for now.
In case the speculation that Galaxy S5 enters production in January, let’s hope we’ll receive some official announcements by Samsung very soon.
