Galaxy S5 To Begin Production in January With Next-Gen Galaxy Gear Not Far Behind
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Samsung Galaxy S5 news have been picking up lately, meaning that the S4 will soon have a new upgrade as early as next year. Rumor has it that Samsung will start getting busy as soon as we pass into the next year.
It appears that Samsung is on-track to begin mass production of the smartphone as early as January, and could even consider starting shipping in March or April release. This means we could see the phone announced as early as CES in January 2014 or Mobile World Congress the month afterward.
The Galaxy S5 is rumored to be similar to the Galaxy Note 3 in terms of specs, as Samsung will look to at least match the Note 3′s Snapdragon 800 processor, alongside a possible Exynos Octa-Core variant capable of 64-bit computing, 3GB of RAM and more.
It is also said that Samsung will unveil the next generation of the Galaxy Gear smart watch alongside the Samsung Galaxy S5. It has been reported that Samsung’s first Galaxy Gear smart watch was released too early on the market to try and beat a possible Apple competitor (the iWatch).
The Galaxy Gear’s depreciation can be seen in its sales, with only 50,000 sales and over 800,000 units shipped to retail stores. We’ll just have to wait and see what the next version has to bring.
