Samsung Galaxy S5 Release Date After CES 2014: What to Expect From Sony Xperia Z2 Rival?

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. 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.

The CES 2014 will be bringing us the latest in tech. Amid much tech talk and viral brouhaha, here are three of the phones that are expected to be hot this year at CES:

Samsung: The biggest contender and show stealer of 2013 will be present at the CES 2014 and will be showcasing their latest Galaxy range. Last year they had unveiled the prototype of the Youm that had a flexible display. This year, two things that are expected are the Samsung Galaxy S5 (a possible Sony Xperia Z2 contender) and the Samsung Galaxy Round.  The S5 might sport a 16MP camera, 64 bit chip and a metal exterior while the Round may be a prototype that will be flexible.

LG: LG is set to be at the heels of Samsung with their new LG Flex. This too has a flexible display that is only available in South Korea. This is a successful step that includes a daring design with a massive display but its features seem to be pretty standard at 720p-so while LG has surfaced to the top, it is yet to beat Samsung.

ASUS: The company will be launching a new range of Chromebooks and also a five incher MeMO phone. Their launch plan also includes a wearable kit that may be showcased at Computex first. … Read the rest
