The Galaxy S5, Samsung's most talked about flagship handset ever, won't be the only high-end phone that the South Korean giant will announce in the first half of 2014. As reports state, the metallic version of Galaxy S5 is tipped to be launched around May this year- according to Korean media.
The rumored handset will arrive in next two months, after the release of HTC One 2, slated to be launched on March 25. The new phone will be part of Samsung's long impending luxury 'F' lineup.
It was earlier speculated that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be announced in two versions: one with plastic chassis and the other with all-metallic body.
At present, the Galaxy S5 has the same square shaped polycarbonate plastic body like its predecessor, and slightly better internal hardware.
Multiple media reports in the past have suggested that Samsung might reveal the Galaxy S5 with a Quad HD (2K resolution) display, full-metallic body, and a new Exynos chipset.
According to recent Korean reports citing senior Samsung officials at the MWC 2014, there will be premium rane if flagship handsets under 'Project F' lineup slated to be announced in the coming days to come. Well, the first such handset under 'Luxury' series will be none other than the Galaxy S5. It will be made out of premium materials, a Quad HD screen, camera with OIS feature and Exynos processor.
The possible release of Samsung Galaxy S5 (luxury edition) is expected to be around May this year. Also, the current version of Galaxy S5 will hit markets worldwide in April for a lesser price tag.
To support Korean media claims, renowned tipster Ricciolo has tweeted that the Luxury S5 edition still exists, and will see daylight in about two months from now. The purported edition will be seen flaunting high-end specs.
