It seems that we finally have a date on which Samsung will unveil its next-gen flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S5. We have an interesting update for you, and this time the information comes from the vice president of the company!
So now that we have got you excited, we want you to know that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress event this year. This information was provided by none other than Dong-hoon Chang, the VP and Head of Design Strategy at Samsung.
It was at the new year’s party at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul when Mr. Chang answered a number of questions asked by reporters. There obviously were going to be questions about the Samsung Galaxy S5, and thankfully we have some interesting answers.
When asked whether the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be unveiled at MWC 2014, he replied saying that the information is “about right.” Something’s definitely hidden in these two words, but we will have to wait for a long period of time to find out what that is. Additionally, he also speculated about plans for the construction material that will be used and the possibility of using more than two of them for the outer body of the Galaxy S5. The other variant is also expected to have a flexible display, but we are happy as long as we know that there are going to be options.
We would have loved to completely believe in what Dong-hoon Chang said, but we have to take this information with a pinch of salt because this wasn’t an official statement as such. The Samsung official might have given out valuable information about the upcoming flagship device, but we do not know what percentage of it is true.
There have already been rumors saying that Samsung will be introducing a new premium range of smartphones, the Galaxy F series. Galaxy F devices are expected to be even better than the Galaxy S series and will have metal bodies instead of high quality plastic found on devices like the Galaxy S4.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to have a 5.25-inch AMOLED touchscreen display with a 2K screen resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). The device will either be powered by the Snapdragon 805 chipset or the next-gen true octa-core Exynos chipset from Samsung. On the inside, there will be a lot of new specs and features, so simply stay tuned till we get more information on the spec sheet.
