If anyone is still talking about the previously released Samsung Galaxy S4 as of now, either the person is not aware what's going on in the smartphone industry, or is living under a rock. The newest thing that's making all the news everywhere is the massively rumored Samsung Galaxy S5.
The Galaxy S5 from Samsung, while we cannot say when an official announcement will be made, is massively expected to be announced at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 event that's set to be held in Barcelona, Spain later this month.
While we are pretty sure that Samsung will not even think about deviating from its profitable tag of Galaxy S for the device, as far as naming the device is concerned, still everything related to it is in a state of rumor and has to be taken with a pinch of salt to say the least.
Nonetheless, we have scoured through the web to find the most potent of rumors related the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 to provide you the most interesting things that have been said about the device to date.
So here are the top 5 rumors you should keep in mind while holding your breathe for the release of the Galaxy S5.
In-device Display Screen
The trickiest aspect of them all - Why does Samsung even need to go for a clearer screen when it's already providing the sharpest of images? While we have no clue to that, we are pretty sure that the company will indeed look for a more sharper display.
While some say that the company will provide a 4K display for all its devices that are set to release this year and the next, others claim that a 2K QHD display could also be on the cards. But most agree that Samsung might still stick to its current generation Super AMOLED display.
This one is a no-brainer since most of the sites on web say that it will be arriving with Android KitKat on board. And while we don't know which version of Android will eventually be sported, but what we do know is that the company will not deviate from Android.
However, if the company is indeed looking toward the future and wants to compete with other big players in the market, it should indeed look to send out the device with KitKat out of the box. But only time will tell what happens next.
This one is a major area to ponder since all others are looking to offer the maximum mega-pixel rich snapper with each of the releases they make. For example, the newly released Lenovo Vibe Z offers a 13-megapixel primary snapper alongside an equally impressive 5-megapixel front-facing camera - and Samsung will look to counter this kind of a threat with an equally captivating camera on offer.
Maybe the next device, as everyone say, will sport a 16-megapixel snapper, or maybe it will feature a 20-megapixel one. We just don't know at the moment.
If Samsung is indeed looking to add more power to its already powerful Galaxy series of smartphones with the S5, it will require an equally powerful battery to match its capabilities. And while nothing can be said about the future, rumors, time and again, have claimed that the device might sport a 3000mAh battery to juice up the device.
Potential Release Date
The first thought anybody has, or will have in this respect, is the upcoming Unpacker event at the upcoming MWC 2014. There have been rumors in the past about Samsung releasing the device in February, and with the MWC set in this month only, the rumors are getting stronger and stronger.
