With all the amazing features that may be available on Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S5 cell phone, it is anticipated that the retail Galaxy S5 price will be no less than $700. Given the pricing on the previous models, and the changes that will be implemented into the new device, The S5 will most definitely carry a high bill. The high bill may disappoint some enthusiasts. However, postpaid carriers will offer a fair discount on it, and some prepaid carriers may offer the consumers a financing option. The Samsung Galaxy S5 has an anticipated launch date of May of 2015.
Tech savvy consumers will be delighted by the bells and whistles that the manufacturers will add to this device. First, the Samsung Galaxy S5 may have two versions. The manufacturer may offer one version with the Android operating system Kitkat or Key Lime Pie, and another version with the Tizen operating system. This will give consumers the option to choose what they prefer. The CEO of Samsung would like to implement the Tizen operating system into the phone, but many consumers still enjoy working with their favorite Android software. Therefore, the company may offer the two variants of its most prominent phone. The updated software will definitely have an impact on the Galaxy S5 price.
In terms of brain capacity, the S5 will have a lot of power. The device will come equipped with a 2GHz octa-core processor with 4GB of ram, which will be a first for a cell phone. Users will be able to blaze through the menu items and enjoy videos and music with no lag time or buffering freeze. Additionally, the amped up processor will have monstrous multi-tasking capabilities, which will be a joy to people who like to get the most that they can out of their cell phones. The S5 will also have the capability of storing 128 gigabytes of material, according to informants.
One of the greatest changes that will come with the new device is the transition from plastic materials to metal materials. Samsung intends to develop the phone with aluminum or magnesium casing, and rumors say that these materials will make the device waterproof. That is great news for people who have trouble keeping their devices clear of water spills and beverage accidents.
The camera will be 16 megapixels with an optical image stabilization feature. This corrective feature will perform tasks such as reducing blurring when an image is captured in motion. It will also tilt the camera while panning. Additionally, the stabilization feature will stabilize recorded images. This added component will be quite useful for the self proclaimed photographers and perfectionist video posters.
The release date has varying speculations. Samsung has not yet released a launch date for the device. Cell phone enthusiasts are hoping that it will come out in the first quarter of 2014. However, the device is more likely to launch in the last quarter of 2014 or the first quarter of 2015. Whenever the company does get launch it, it will certainly fly off the shelves even with the hefty price tag.
