The buzz is only growing stronger about the Samsung Galaxy S5 release.
Samsung Galaxy S5 release
If a recently published report is to be believed, then Samsung might be releasing the Galaxy S5 in 2014 February to compensate for the poor sales numbers of its present flagship Galaxy S4 and also to strongly compete with the Apple iPhone 5S.
Samsung Galaxy S5 features
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is all set to take the Android-based smartphone market by storm in the coming year. There are several killer features predicted for the Galaxy S5. It is going to be available in two different OS variants and will also pack in ultra-slim RAM as well as an incredibly powerful 64-bit processor chipset. The Galaxy S5 will also be built with hazard protections. Unlike all other Samsung Galaxy series phones, the S5 will feature a complete metal chassis. What this means is that Samsung finally ditches the plastic body to make way for a stunning aluminum build for the S5. The S5 will not be seen in any plastic or polycarbonate body which may come as a sweet surprise to many Samsung loyalists.
Samsung Galaxy S4 sales
Samsung did not live up to its predications as far as the sales of S4 are concerned. It plans to turn the tide with the S5.
It may look like a treat of 5 in the coming three months as Nexus 5 will be launched in the next week which will further be joined by Galaxy S5 probably in January. As per Naver, the Korean company will probably postpone the date of its flagship device for the simple reason that it will slump the sales of S4. The anticipated January launch of S5 will collide with CES 2014. However, as far as we know, Samsung prefers to create its own event for launching the new Galaxy flagship S series.
Never Back Down!
January is quite tipsy turvy for the launch of refreshed technology as companies advertise the previous gadgets during the holiday. However, Naver found out that Samsung desperately wants to upgrade its smartphone series to face off the iPhone 5S. The S5 is speculated to come with 64 bit chip popularly known as 8 cores in the countries right now.
It is also expected that it will bring an all-metal phone dumping the plastic case of the S4 and faux leather case of Note 3. S5 may run on Android and Tizen, Samsung first initiative to dominate the Android OS market.… Read the rest
Great news for Samsung as it has already sold 20 million units of Galaxy S4 within just sixty days of the release. The Korean company planned to launch Galaxy S4 in 155 countries with 327 carriers worldwide. The high popularity of the same made it possible for Samsung to cross 10 million mark within just one month.
The news was confirmed in the Samsung’s official blog too when it described that global channel sales of GALAXY S4 has surpassed 10 million units sold in less than one month after its commercial debut on April 27 and its been selling like four units per second.
If the sales figure is compared with the predecessor of the handset, the Galaxy S3, the new one is definitely on the higher side as it is getting an extra benefit of the popularity of S3 too.
Though Samsung has reached high sales milestone, a recent report indicates that the company has condensed the production of the handset by around 20 to 30 percent for July. However, the upcoming production has included five more colors than the initial two color options.
The Galaxy S4 packs in top-end specifications with the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system which makes it undoubtedly one of the best-selling Samsung smartphones around.
The spotlight is on iPhone 6 as this would be the device that is supposed to change the game in favor of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Plenty of speculations are doing rounds in the techie world and expectations are high about the look of the Game-Changer.
It’s a do or die situation for the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and if the device is not beyond the dreams of its fans and investors, neither of them would be the takers. Taking the example of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON: BC94) (KRX: 005930), the Galaxy S4 is not well received and investors are turning away. Some analysts consider that Apple’s stock price is actually being affected by Samsung’s slumping Galaxy S4 sales.
All the new smartphones in the market are not up to mark and only offering some upgrades here and there, not enough to attract buyers. An enterprising challenge for Apple lies ahead as the consumers are not satisfied with mere upgrades; rather they are waiting for an all new Apple this fall or next year.
We can only say that take your time but unveil something which is essentially state-of-the-art.… Read the rest
Samsung is making headlines after exceeding the sales figure of Apple’s iPhone 5 in the U.S. since its launch last September. The Samsung Galaxy S4 was the top drawer at T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon and the second best at AT&T preceded by the iPhone 5 in May.
The Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 at discounted prices with some free schemes and the strong sales of Galaxy S4 have attributed to achieve this target as referred by Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley of the U.S. The prices of the same are slashed heavily to make the way for the Galaxy Note 3 which is expected to be announced in September.
Walkley further adds that it is the Samsung’s marketing and advertising campaign of some $2.5 billion in the first quarter of 2013, which have tossed up the sales figure despite the recommendation of HTC by store representatives.
The report by Walkley also indicates that the investment in advertising campaign to inform consumers of its more advanced features than Apple’s iPhone has been paid off well.
