Samsung Galaxy S5 release date is expected to take place early next year although no definite date was announced by the South Korean tech company.
It is most likely that Samsung will hold an elaborate event for Samsung Galaxy S5. Just like the past releases of the Samsung Galaxy line, Samsung made sure to make an extravagant presentation of the specifications and features of the device.
According to the latest rumours, Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature 64-bit processor, Android 4.4 KitKat OS, fingerprint sensor and longer battery life.
Samsung's 2014 flagship phone will be dustproof and water-resistant just like its rival Sony Xperia Z. Some reports stated that Galaxy S5 will retain the Samsung Galaxy S4's existing megapixels back camera but will improve its camera lens to deliver better quality photos.
Samsung Galaxy S5 is also expected to have flexible displays since the company is reported testing out such screen displays. The upcoming Samsung smartphone will sport a metal casing while ditching its conventional plastic housing.
Below are some of the possible launch dates of the Samsung Galaxy S5.
January - Korean Web site Naver that Samsung Galaxy S5 will be announced in January and the device will be available for purchase in February. No specific date was dropped. It seems that Samsung wants to get ahead on the release of its rival - iPhone 6, which is rumoured to be launched in the first quarter of next year.
CES 2014 - Another possible release date of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is the upcoming Consumer Electronic Show to be held in Las Vegas on January 7 to 10. If the Galaxy S5 will be missing in action, some of the specs and features packed in the device will most probably make an appearance.
MWC 2014 - Some reports asserted that Samsung Galaxy S5 will be shown at the Mobile World Congress event to be held on February 24 to 27 in Barcelona, Spain. In the past, Samsung revealed tablets at the said event.
March - Samsung Galaxy S5 may also follow the past release date of Samsung Galaxy S4. The S4 was released in March. Last year, just 11 months after Samsung Galaxy S3 was introduced in the market, Samsung released the successor.
April - Samsung may hold its Unpacked event for Galaxy S5 in April just like the Samsung Galaxy S3. The device was on sale the following month.
