This is based on the latest move by Samsung to merge its camera and imaging divisions, the purpose of which, according to Gotta Be Mobile, is for future Galaxy devices to showcase game-changing camera capabilities.

These exciting improvements should start showing up on high-end Galaxy smartphones in 2014, with the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 as the initial recipients. It is also understood that the powerful features will be extended to Galaxy tablets, said the same GBM report.

And as the technology is already in place, though a giant and quick leap-frog is required for the actual implementation, the likelihood is Samsung should be all set to rollout the GS5 within the first four months of 2014.

In a separate report, GBM said that all signs currently point to March or April as the likely release date for the Galaxy S5. Should it be March 2014, this will be in line with earlier reports that Samsung has set February as the debut time for the GS5.

The claim is supported by reports coming from South Korea that mass production of the GS5 will commence by early January, which strongly suggests too that everything about the handset - its design, make and features - have been pretty much finalised.

What is left to see for millions of Sammy fans are the specific specs and features that are expected to upstage both the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3.

So far, rumours have suggested that Samsung is cooking a beastly but beautiful device in the Galaxy S5. It goes without saying that the GS5 will strut around in a slim and body finish, with the Galaxy maker likely employing a new manufacturing technique that was first used in the Note 3.

There were chatters too that the GS5 will reflect a complete makeover from GS4 and the highlight of the radical change would be the introduction of a metallic Galaxy S5. However, while this possibility is not dismissed by Samsung, it was floated that the GS5, like its predecessor, will hit the market in numerous variants.

Some editions will be built geared for the upscale market while there will be builds that will roll out to emerging markets. Therefore, it would be hardly surprising for Samsung to release premium and mass-market versions of the Galaxy S5.

To date, however, these talks remain speculative as Samsung only confirmed that its 2014 flagship will deliver 8-core Exynos processing chips with 64-bit computing capabilities. The information prompted analyst to predict that part of the GS5 package is 4GB of RAM and higher on-board storage.

On its release date, the Galaxy S5 will on run on the latest Android OS KitKat 4.4 or even Key Lime Pie right out of the box.
