Update: Samsung Galaxy S5 Specs Leaked!
News , smart phones / January 14, 2014

We’re just months away from the official Samsung Galaxy S5 launch, leaving consumers everywhere eagerly anticipating the specs of this groundbreaking smartphone. In some of our previous blog posts here at GalaxyS5US.com, we covered a number of rumored features, including eye-scanning technology, aluminum and leather body, curved display, etc. However, we now have details on what’s believed to be the official specs for the Samsung Galaxy S5! Insider Information From SamMobile Earlier this week, SamMobile published an article on their website claiming to have direct content with a Samsung insider. This informant provided a number of specific details regarding the company’s upcoming Galaxy S5 smartphone. Whether or not this “insider” is real is yet to be determined, but the specs published on their website look pretty realistic. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Will Come In Two Models According to the insider information published at SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will come in two different versions: a metal version for roughly $670 bucks, and a plastic version for $450 bucks. This is something that many people had expected (including myself) given the success of the Apple iPhone 5s, which is also available in a plastic and metal version. With two different models,…

GalaxyS5 , Images , News , smart phones / December 9, 2013

Is the Galaxy S5 Release Date Rumor True? A video popped up from Samsung stating that the Galaxy J would be released on Monday, December 9, which caused a panic for those awaiting the Galaxy S5. Why was it such an issue? Because the latest rumor around the mill says that the Galaxy J is in fact none other than the Galaxy S5, but is it? The simple answer is no, it is not. According to a strange and contradictory post by the International Business Times, the long awaited release of the Galaxy S5 is here, and it is releasing in Taiwan as the Galaxy J. The IBT’s exact statement is: “Samsung Galaxy S5 release date is scheduled today after Samsung has teased fans with a video of a handset with metallic body.” While we appreciate the enthusiasm, and we know that it is exciting to think that the Galaxy S5 is in fact being released today, we think you shouldn’t get your hopes up. There are too many contradictions between the Samsung J the Galaxy S5, and what we know about both for the former to be the same as the latter. Maybe J is a scaled down version,…

Galaxy S5 Release Date Coming in January or March?
GalaxyS5 , News / November 28, 2013

Galaxy S5 Rumor Says Release in 2014 We’ve got an awesome new rumor for you today regarding the Galaxy S5, and it’s only been running around the mill for a few hours now. Apparently, according to the International Business Times, someone leaked a brand new release date for the Galaxy S5. According to the report, the Galaxy S5 release date rumor claims that Samsung will be manufacturing the device in early January 2014 with its release scheduled for sometime in March 2014 – and possibly as late as April. While this is certainly welcome news, the dates don’t seem to track with what was previously rumored. Previous Galaxy S5 Release Date Rumors According to previous reports, the Galaxy S5 had a potential release date for the Consumer Electronics Show and Mobile World Congress. However, we are wondering if those previous rumored reports didn’t mix up the “announcement date” with the “release date,” since they are two separate things.  Often, a company will announce that it has a prototype and is planning to release a specific device weeks, and sometimes months, before the device is actually manufactured or available for sale. We think that his is a possibility given the time…

According to their various sources, the Galaxy S5 will boast a 16-megapixel camera and the screen will boast a huge increase in the number of pixels per square inch. Let’s Talk about Galaxy S5 Pixels While we all no doubt thought that Samsung’s ability to get 441 pixels per square inch into the Galaxy S4’s display was pretty darn amazing, and made viewing anything on it a dream, Samsung has apparently figured out how to pack a bigger wallop with the S5.  According to Geek.com, the Galaxy S5 will boast a…

More Mobil OS Rumors – Android Kit-Kat vs. Samsung  Tizen™ However, while that same IBT report says that the newest Android Kit-Kat mobile operating system the Galaxy simply because it is the power behind the Nexus 5, that will not necessarily, be the case. The IBT’s reasoning behind their…

Yet Another Galaxy S5 64-bit CPU Rumor According to PhoneArena via DT, the South Korean online magazine that’s leaked a lot of cool information about the Samsung Galaxy S5 of late, the as yet unannounced Galaxy S5 will definitely be getting that 64-bit CPU about which we keep hearing.  Though most mainstream media sites swear that it is impossible for the Galaxy to get a 64-bit unit, we thought it was possible and said as much in this previous post. Now, DT is saying it is once again possible, and the news comes with a sidekick of a rumor that not only is the CPU in its final production stages, but that – if the Google Translate version of the DT page is correct – the CPU will be ready in about a month. CPU to Feature Eight Cores? In an October 25 report, PhoneArena said that Samsung executives hinted at this possibility of the chip’s readiness during the press conference held for their quarterly results. The company apparently decided that it should speed up its timetable to complete and release the Galaxy s5 because of the competition from Apple and its own S5, which is currently the only available…

GalaxyS5 , News , smart phones / October 23, 2013

Plus: Galaxy S5 to Get Plastic Body? Though everyone is amazed with the new Samsung Note, the Galaxy S5 is still the talk of the town, as evidenced by the rumor mill that just will not quit, though there are some experts who are for some reason just hearing about these “new” rumors… Go figure. Today we are here to tell you that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will definitely be getting the ISOCELL technology in its camera. We think its more possible now than it ever was because this is not the first time this specific rumor has surfaced, and this time it’s from a different source. Well, when we first told you about the ISOCELL technology, we mentioned that we had heard that it would be accompanied with Lytro tech as well, although that part of that specific rumor didn’t make this round.. What are the Camera Features? According to GSMArena via ETNews, the camera will feature a 16 GB sensor, and both Samsung’s own LSI and Sony are going to fight it out for the rights to produce them en masse, calling what is sure to be an interesting fight a bidding war. We’re wondering why Samsung LSI…

Galaxy S5 Vs Galaxy S6 – Still too early to decide?
News , smart phones / October 21, 2013

For lovers of the Samsung galaxy, there is great confusion between which phones to purchase. Will it be S5 which is due to be in the market some time next year or the Samsung galaxy S6, which is set to be launched in 2015? Of course this seems far compared to the launch of the galaxy S5. But come to think of it, it’s just a year’s difference. Is it logical to buy the S5, then after a year go for the new S6? Samsung galaxy S6 will be more advanced than S5. Still, you can’t ignore the fact that S5 will come with cool features. This is what makes S5 cool on its own: ➢ A faster processor with a higher processing power. It will be in 64 bit. This will give you the ability to multitask and perform different tasks at the same time, comfortably. ➢ The camera comes with higher megapixel of 20.7. It will contain a back-side illumination, have low-light sensitivity, a video resolution of 4K, and you will be able to record in slow motion. ➢ The design is wonderful. Coming up with a slim is a very big challenge. But S5 will achieve this….

Rumor: Galaxy S5 Drops 64-bit Support?
GalaxyS5 , News , smart phones / October 18, 2013

Experts can’t make up their minds about Galaxy S5. Just a few hours after we told you about the back and forth about the potential whether the Galaxy S5 would get 64-bit support via Samsung’s own chip, or via the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 64-bit chip, a new report was published stating that Galaxy S5 wouldn’t be released with the 64-bit CPU after all. The Latest Rumor Source The report, issued by Trusted Reviews, stated that Samsung would not be able to “mass produce the chip in time for launch” of the device. The chip in question at this point was the 64-bit Exynos 6 CPU we told you about yesterday. However, we would just like to point out that just because Samsung doesn’t have the capability to mass produce the chips in time for the Galaxy S5 launch, doesn’t mean that the device will lack 64-bit support entirely. Samsung could always go with the originally rumored choice, the Snapdragon chip. The Snapdragon is powerful, built for LTE and other CPU-heavy processes, and beloved by current users of devices with Snapdragon CPU installations. According to the Trusted Reviews report, they got the info from Unwired View, which states: “Mass production of…

Rumor: Galaxy S5 to Get 64-Bit CPU – Again?
GalaxyS5 , Images , News , smart phones / October 17, 2013

Galaxy S5 Rumor Mill is at it Again Boy, the Galaxy S5 Rumor mill can’t make up its mind, can it? With all the gossip out there, most of it going back and forth about the specifications that the Galaxy S5 will feature in its new, as yet still unannounced, iteration, it’s a wonder that any of the mainstream media sites can keep them straight. Two of the most hotly debated rumors include that of the mobile operating system the Galaxy will sport, and what type of hardware architecture it will sport – on which the mobile operating system used will rely. Potential CPU & OS for Galaxy S5 First, it was noted that Galaxy S5 will feature a Snapdragon 80 64-bit CPU, which would have allowed the device to run Kit-Kat. Then, rumors started flying about the lack of 64-bit support, which essentially meant that the Kit-Kat mobile OS would be impossible because Android Kit-Kat is designed for 64-bit systems. This meant the Galaxy S5 would have had to feature the older version of Android, Jelly bean, or that Samsung would have to take a chance at offering the company’s own mobile operating system, Tizen, which seemed highly unlikely…
