From Naver, a Korean news source, comes this surprising news that Samsung may be is on the pursuit of coming up with the new phone as early as January 2014, though the news is not yet confirmed.
The current business scenario does not allow anybody to sit idle, or else a competitor may take you out. It appears to be same for Samsung too, as right after their launching of the curved display ‘Galaxy Round’, the smartphone manufacturing giant has been rumored to working on another handset, the ‘Samsung S5’.
Understandably, the news comes after the unexpected decline in the sales of Samsung S4. The qualm is also supported by Naver’s citing that Samsung is indeed disappointed with the S4 sales outcome as the shares have fallen by 13% since April, this year, though 20 million units of the smartphone was sold during the first quarter of 2013. But the outselling record of iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, and the latest release of LG G2 made the S4 a little backdated.
Therefore, expectations are high that the Korean smartphone manufacturer with its unparallel expertise in technological developments may try to come up with a premium carbon fiber or metal body instead of the S4’s plastic body. We better hope that the new smartphone may also include their recent innovations, Exynos 5430 chip with 64 bit architecture and 16-megapixel ISOCELL camera sensor that have optical image stabilization and better low-light capabilities.
