News emerges of the Samsung Galaxy S5 breaking cover in Korea with the introduction of a new 16 megapixel camera module.
The Galaxy S4 was launched just a few months ago back in March whilst its predecessor, the Galaxy S3 launched in May 2012. This leads us to think that we will see the Samsung Galaxy S5 being officially launched sometime around February or March, 2014. That’s just 6 months away.
The latest news broke via ETNews in Korea concerning the development of the Galaxy S5 and in particular its camera module and supply chain. It seems Samsung are working hard to introduce a new 16 megapixel camera module coupled with Optical Image Stabilization for the Auto Focus, Back Side Illumination, and a CMOS Image Sensor this becomes impressive technology.
Samsung are currently developing an improved 16 megapixel main camera for the Galaxy S5 – compared to 13 megapixels for the S4. This may not appear to be a vast uplift but when coupled with the functions above this will bring a significant improvement over the performance of the S4.
Another must for the Galaxy S5 is that it should come in a 4G-LTE Advanced version as well as the standard 4G LTE version. The Samsung Galaxy S4 4G LTE Advanced has already been released in Korea.
EE will be upgrading its mobile network to 4G LTE Advanced in the first quarter of 2014 and we expect to see them offering the Samsung Galaxy S5 4G LTE Advanced at that time. This would bring download speeds of around 20 times that of the same phone on a 3G mobile network.
We are tracking the development of the Samsung Galaxy S5 so come back soon for more details as they happen.
