Samsung Galaxy S5 to be launched at MWC 2014
As per Korean media via SamMobile, Dong-hoon Chang (Samsung Electronics Vice President of Design Team) met with media at an event that was held at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul on New Year’s occasion. Dong-hoon Chang said that the speculated MWC 2014 launch for the Samsung Galaxy S5 was affirmative and also confirmed that Samsung was using a new material for the Galaxy S5 construction. This somewhat confirms our previous report about the Samsung Galaxy S5 being expected to feature an aluminium unibody metal chassis. An earlier report has suggested that Samsung plans to release two versions of the Galaxy S5.
According to the report, there would be two variants of the Samsung Galaxy S5; one which is a premium variant sporting a metal chassis and a flexible OLED and the second one would come with the usual plastic body just like other Galaxy range of Android smartphones.The premium variant can be named as Samsung Galaxy F. There are reports saying that Samsung will not launch both the devices together.
A GFXBench listing in December 2013 revealed a device which was code-named Samsung SM-G900S sporting a screen resolution of 1440×2560 pixels, a 5.0- or 5.2-inch display screen. The alleged Samsung Galaxy S5 would include a 64-bit Exynos chipset or a Snapdragon chipset, 3GB of RAM, a 16MP primary camera, a 4000mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI.
