Samsung fans have given overwhelming positive response to the Samsung Galaxy S4 back on its launch in March. Time does not stand still and the Korean company must keep abreast with Apple for smartphone superiority.

 Launch And Release Date

Smartphone companies typically launch devices on an annual basis. With this, it is possible that the next Samsung flagship smartphone is nearing its launch date, as the Galaxy S4 is turning a year old already. The Galaxy S4 was launched in March and analysts believe the Galaxy S5 is likely to be released in the first quarter of 2014.


Apple turned its entire mobile platform to 64-bit processors upon the launch of its iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPhone 5s. Now, it is about time for Samsung to also play the catch-up game and be ready to jump into the 64-bit processor boat. As the CEO of the Samsung Mobile, Shin Jon-Kyun said, "next smartphones will have 64-bit processing."


Despite the absence of official information about the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S5, it is unlikely for consumers to see a screen larger than 5 inches. An increase in its size would definitely impact the Galaxy Note range already, according to Expert Reviews. Also, Samsung is likely to revamp its Galaxy S4's Full HD resolution with the WQHD 2560 x 1440 screen, which will arrive in 2014 and the Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 due in 2015.

With the recent release of the Galaxy Round with curved screen in Korea, there is a possibility that the technology will be seen on the next-generation Galaxy S smartphone. Not to mention that there is also a possibility of an upgraded Super AMOLED technology incorporated in the Galaxy S5, as reported by the Expert Reviews.


The 13MP camera of the Samsung Galaxy S4 made people's jaws drop when it was unveiled in March but then competitors came up even more extraordinary cameras like the Sony Xperia 20MP and the Nokia Lumia 1020 41MP. The competition has been really tough ever since and Samsung undoubtedly needs to keep innovating to keep abreast with the ever competitive smartphone market.

Build Quality

Samsung fans have been whining about the plastic case of the Galaxy S4 and they've been looking forward to see an all-metal body like the HTC One and the iPhone 5s. In 2014, it is not surprising anymore to see these changes made to the Galaxy S5.
