The Samsung Galaxy S5 will be the new flagship smartphone for the Korean company. If Samsung follows the expected pattern, the Galaxy S5 release date will be sometime in February 2014, or March at the latest. Let’s have a look at what the Galaxy S5’s features will be.
Firstly, since Apple’s move to a 64 bit OS Samsung has stated that they will be doing the same. But because Samsung doesn’t write the code for the Android OS, Google will have to be approached to write the first 64 bit capable Android OS. It is likely this will be based on the recently released Android 4.4 Kit Kat OS.
One of the major complaints about the Galaxy S4 was its plastic body. Samsung have recently bought 50% in SGL Group, a company specializing in carbon-fibre. Thus, it is not difficult to imagine that Samsung will use the durable and light material for the Galaxy S5. This should go a long way in style race against Apple’s iPhone while also giving Samsung the possibility of making the Galaxy S5 waterproof and dustproof out of the box. That would really be a huge ego blow for the iPhone.
