Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has faded into the background faster than any of its predecessors to date. Not that it isn’t an stunning handset with all the power of God packed into its sleek frame, but competition across the Android, iOS and Windows Markets alike has never been so abundant or fierce.
With the likes of the LG G2, the iPhone 5S, the HTC One and Google Nexus 5 all gunning for the same crowd, the S4 lost its luster in record time.
Thankfully it isn’t all doom and gloom though as the South Korean firm doesn’t seem intent on sitting around and licking its wounds for too long. Quite to the contrary in fact, it’s looking more likely by the day that the early retirement of the S4 will be compensated for by an early launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5.
And if that doesn’t pique your interests by name alone, reports from the Korean media suggest that the S5 could be stuffed with a massive 4GB of RAM. In addition, we’re also led to believe that contrary to earlier suggestions from various sources, the Galaxy S5 will indeed feature a 64-bit CPU of the same caliber of Apple’s iconic A7 chip.
Holdups in the development of Samsung’s next-generation chip have apparently been overcome and it’s all-systems-go for the Galaxy S5’s rollout.
Along with this incredible processing power that could see the S5 outperform every high-end device on the market today, it is also expected to be the first from the series to sport a sleek metallic housing. Coupled with a 5-inch 1080p HD screen, a 16-megapixel camera and Android KitKit, the S5 certainly stands every chance of once again propelling Samsung back to the top of the Android pecking orders.
No details on the S5’s release have yet been shared by Samsung, though analysts expect the device to debut early next year at the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
