Samsung is and has been the leader in the thriving smartphone industry for the past couple of years. Figures can bear the veracity of the success of the South Korean tech giant, which shows that it accounts to more than one-third (34%) of the worldwide smartphone share in 2013, considering the myriad of smartphone manufacturers all across the globe. Its closest competitor Apple, on the other hand, only has 15% market share, which is less than half of Samsung’s stupendous figure. But we have to recognize that none of these are possible without the consistent achievements of Samsung not only with its flagship devices but also with all of its products.
And now that 2014 has commenced, a brand new beginning is awaiting the smartphone industry with various advancements that will again revolutionize the mobile technology. With Samsung, the most looked forward to is the Galaxy S5. Based on tradition, it is most likely to become the flagship smartphone of Samsung, hence, the extensive speculation of its soon-to-be existence.
According to ZDNet Korea, a reliable source which has reported accurate details surrounding the various unannounced Samsung devices in the past, the company is preparing to launch a killer smartphone this coming February of 2014. But as of now, it is still uncertain if the said device will birth the name Galaxy S5. However, the probability is high that it is to materialize based on the alignment of the rumors with multiple earlier reports.
If it so happens that the Galaxy S5 is the device to be launched this coming February at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show, we can expect an assortment of diverse and innovative features that can help fortify Samsung’s place in the leaderboard of the smartphone wars. It will most likely be the first commercially available handset to feature a 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution in a 5.5-inch smartphone display. Also, it will be powered by a 2.5GHz 64-bit octa-core Exynos processor and 3GB of RAM, which will run the latest Android 4.4 KitKat. In terms of imaging, it will be integrated with a 16-megapixel back camera improved with the ISOCELL technology that will enable it to capture exceptional photos in low-light environment. And last but not the least, it is said that the Galaxy S5 will feature an iris-scanning mechanism that will probably be the innovation of the year.
But we all have to be aware that all these are just rumors. Although a number of reports are indicative of this to happen, just keep in mind that speculations are but figments of the human mind until proven factual. Let’s just cross our fingers in the hopes that Samsung can once again remind everyone why it’s the king with the Galaxy S5.
