Samsung has been doing extremely well in the smartphone segment and has in fact it has become the largest seller of all phones. But the Samsung Galaxy S4, which started off as being a high seller soon fell flat. It hasn’t been able to hit sales numbers like the previous Galaxy S3 or even the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2. Meanwhile the iPhone 5 has become the best selling iPhone ever. With the new iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 expected to be released soon it certainly looks like Apple is gearing up to take back some of its lost market momentum. But Samsung will not stand by and just let this happen, latest analyst reports indicate that Samsung might in fact pre-pone the release of the Galaxy S5 to tackle its competition.
Samsung has always given Galaxy S phones the best of specification. So it is likely that the new Galaxy S5 will have an octa core processor, some even think that a 16 core processor is likely. Like the iPhone 6 the Galaxy S5 is expected to have 2GB of RAM. One of the biggest gripes that people have had about the Galaxy S4 was that it was just too similar looking to the Galaxy S3. To that end expect the Galaxy S5 to opt for some new form features – most analysts expect the phone to have a carbon fibre body. And this last point will be its biggest plus in the battle against the iPhone 6. Undoubtedly the iPhones have always been some of the best looking smartphones out there and if Samsung decides to make the Galaxy S5 better looking than the Galaxy S4, they might just be able to turn the table on the iPhone 6.
