While there have been more rumors and speculations than facts about Samsung Galaxy S5, people generally agree that it will be released in 2014. The attention the Samsung Galaxy S5 release date has caught indicates that it will be among the grandest smart phone launches of the year.
Samsung has developed a reputation for consistency when it comes to releasing its smart phones, which is why many experts are expecting the launch of the Galaxy S5 around March or April. This is because the company released its Galaxy S4 in April 2013.
Samsung is expected to start producing its newest flagship smart phone towards the end of 2013. If the rumors are true, then the S5 will shape the future of the Galaxy S series.
Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to feature an aluminum exterior and 64-bit processor to rival the iPhone 5S. Note the close similarity between the names: 5S and S5. It is also expected to have a new 16-megapixel camera module featuring optical image stabilization, which will make it the first smart phone to use the latest technology.
According to the Electronic Times News, the company had considered the OIS feature for its Galaxy Note 3 but put it off because it did not get the supplies in time.
However, this is not the first time Samsung has been expected to release a smart phone featuring a metal exterior. Considering the criticism the company has received for producing high-end phones with plastic bodies, it may change tact this time. It has already experimented with metal design on the Galaxy S4 Active that it released in June 2013.
A number of factors are expected to influence the Samsung Galaxy S5 release date, including the criticisms and failures of its predecessors. Although the sale of Samsung Galaxy S4 soared within the first two months of its release, consumers later started shunning it, a trend that has concerned both analysts and shareholders.
If the updates featured on the S4 variants seem to turn the tide, then the company will probably release the S5 in 2014 as people generally expect. If they do not do the trick, however, Samsung may be forced to release the Galaxy S5 sooner.
