Samsung has finalized the release date for the S5 and will launch the S5 in the Mobile World Congress. Mr. Chang, head of the design strategy team for Samsung had told Korean website inews24 that they will launch the flag ship phone along with other new material.
He had also confirmed that they were currently reviewing many new features such as the flexible display but did not mention whether this feature will be a part of the S5 design. Earlier reports had stated that electronics giants, LG and Samsung, will not be launching flexible displays any time soon as the technology was still under development, but they will be launching a curved display alter in the 2014.
The Mobile World Congress will take place in Barcelona in February; Samsung will also hold their own launch event for the S5 before the exhibit. We can also expect the S5 to have a metal casing and a better screen with a 2560×1440 pixel resolution; but these are as of yet, just speculations. Other speculated features are a 16 MP isocell camera, a RAM of 3 GB, and octa core Exynos processor built in the 64 bit style.
Those who are looking forward for the release of Samsung Galaxy S5 with a curved display, it could be disappointing as the specs are yet not ready to support the device.
As per the Korean Herald, the limitations on the production prevent the GS5 feature of curved display. The production volume for the 5 inch Samsung flexible display is 30% of the complete production for the components of the display. The flagship series like Note 3 and GS4 have sold over 10 million handsets in the first few months of its sale and more, but it’s safe to stay with the same production as it may exceed the flexible display produced. Thus, GS5 needs more screens that might not be supplied for the curved displays.
Samsung launched the first Galaxy Round smartphone curved display in October. It was released for demo but it could only gross 50000 handset sales in Southern Korea. Galaxy Round was the curved version of Note 3. As the Korean company’s curved display technology is still in its initial development stage, Samsung still needs to get settled for some appealing action
The Samsung’s flexible display development commenced in January with the revelation of Youm technology at CES 2013! Reports still suggest that GS5 will feature flexible or curved display. However, Samsung seemed to deny this issue. The April reports indicated that Samsung will go with OLED flexible display. When Galaxy Round was launched, the OLED experts reported that Round did not make use of Samsung Youm Technique.
What’s In Store For Samsung’s Flexible Display Technology?
Though Samsung Galaxy S5 may not come with curved display, but most of the people expect that the Korean producer will feature flexible display and use in the coming devices. Samsung may release the technology in small volumes.
One idea is to release the GS5 with curved display. Often Samsung launched its flagship versions with specs that differ from the main source. While GS4 was released with Exynos 5 Octa CPU for 3G version with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU and later it released GS4 LTE with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU.
Rumours state that it could be released in two designs, metallic exterior with curved OLED screen or plastic body with OLED display.
Apple has been biting too much dust owing to the rise of the Korean giant. Finally now, we landed on an image that reveals the eye ID retina scanner on the upcoming Apple iPhone 6. Wonder what this has got to do with Samsung? Well, the first instance of the retina scanner came in the form of a rumored spec on the yet-to-release Samsung Galaxy S5.
A latest render for the Apple iPhone 6 from SET Solution reveals that the retina scanner has replaced the fingerprint scanner spec that we saw in Apple iPhone 5s.
With such a security spec in air, the iPhone 6 is set to be one of the most secure phones the world has ever seen!
While Apple might be busy in patenting the technology, we expect the price for the upcoming iPhone to shoot up too.
Another awesome modification that the 6th baby from Apple has under its hood is a small home button. Thus, the display size will appear magnanimous and come edge-to-edge.
A buffed up speaker spec and two powerful shutters are the other wow stuff that Apple might pack into its latest wonder.
The Korean giant Samsung is leaving no technology unturned to slim down its flagships devices to a size zero level. We have sniffed news that the much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S5 is set to come all sleek and sexy—thanks to the technology of integrating the antennae. Do we smell a hint of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 here?
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S5 in 2014’s first quarter. In fact, viral web leaks have pointed to a metal body replacing the staple Samsung plastic mold.
We have noticed a trend to slim down its babies with every model from Samsung, The Samsung Galaxy S4 was 0.5 mm thinner than the Galaxy S3.
Of course, without compromising on display and screen size! Looks like the makers have mastered the treadmill trick with each model!
In fact, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is 1 mm sleeker than its preceding model. In addition, the LDS tech is the clear reason why.
A source from ET News has gone on record stating, “When we were developing the Galaxy S3, it took us more than three weeks to change the antenna frequency design for different countries and regions… As we began to use the LDS-type cases with built-in antennas, we could reduce the development time to 3-4 days.”… Read the rest
