For most of the year 2014, we have been surrounded by rumors of the Samsung Galaxy S5 premium model that later developed the nickname of “prime” to be referred to instead. According to many sources that we knew it was coming and that led us to give less than favorable reviews for the current S5 because of the word that another, better model was coming right behind it. But could Sammy be that cheeky?
New rumors had emerged today that Sammy wasn’t lying after all when the CEO said that there was no prime S5. As it turns out the Quad HD display, Snapdragon 805 and other goodies could be coming to a new smartphone called the Galaxy F. That would make a lot of sense with this exception the leader from the company headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul would have been telling fibs this whole time. As it stands the release date for this is going to be June according to reports.
Now, keeping in mind that there is no confirmation so far and this is only rumor, it would mean that the S5 is no longer at the top of the Galaxy range and is not the flagship. The alternative is unless Samsung thinks they can just release another handset later in the same year and give it better specs than the device they released earlier. In this case, that earlier device would have been the S5.
No matter what direction you peer at it, nothing is making perfect sense presently but that could be in consequence of we do not have all the information needed fully to comprehend what is happening. One thing I can say is that at least part of the story we have heard will end up being true and in time everything will start to make sense.
Right now other big news sites and blogs are reporting the release date speculation for the S5 prime and acting as if they know it is set. There is no way that they do because nobody does now. Furthermore, I am not ready to buy into the idea until I see it. If you already paid for the current S5 in full or subsidized it then doesn’t panic just yet since it might not become a poor deal for you after all.
I subjectively find it arduous to swallow that Sammy would launch two flagships in the same year and under the same name. To me that is ripping off the people who bought the first options and it is outdated far too quick.
Even though the equipment is not officially announced and, therefore, we do not have an official name, don’t be surprised if many of the specs that we know of will be true. What we have heard so far is it will be a smartphone running Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS and have an aluminium body. The display size is 5.2-inches and the resolution is 1440 x 2560 pixels with a pixel density of 565 ppi. The hardware is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 system chip pieced together with a Quad core, 2457 MHz processor. The graphics processor is a new benchmark that we are not used to seeing at Adreno 420. It is the first time I have saw anything near 400, although whether another device exists that has it that high is not confirmed. It also has very high system memory at 3072 MB RAM. The built-in storage is 32 GB and that will only offer a maximum 25 GB storage to the user after the Android OS takes up 10 GB. There ‘re no stats on this, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that they will offer MicrosSD card or something similar that offer an additional 128 GB as most top-end devices always do. But who knows, it may have a new memory card and it may go even higher than that.
Topping off the rest of this handset features include a 16 megapixel camera. It will also have a front-facing 2 megapixel snapper for the selfies. There’s nothing special happening there that we don’t already have. However, the camcorder has 1080p HD and a resolution of 1920×1080.
According to a recent survey the most important factor of a new smartphone according to the user is the battery and about the only information, we don’t have to share just that, the battery.
If you want the rest of the specs that are less popular we can give you that also. The multimedia has Album Art covers, playlists, artists, albums and background playback. Additional technology includes the GPS and A-GPS and it does have navigation. Connectivity-wise it has Bluetooth, WiFi, USB charging, USB 2.0, microUSB and it obviously offers tethering, OTA syncs and computers Syncs for programs such as Samsung Kies and backing up those contacts.
Anyhow, now that we have told you all that what would be your preference? Would you rather Samsung come out with a brand new S5 only months after they just release the first one or would that annoy you? Would you prefer it turned into a new range of galaxy F? Let us know in the comments about what you think and if Sammy has taken away your confidence.
