Samsung Galaxy S5, rumor roundup

The Samsung Galaxy S4 has again been rejuvenated by receiving the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update in the US, and consumers are still considering this top notch device as an option available to them in the United States.

However, despite the Galaxy S4 being the flagship phone of Samsung currently, rumors about the Galaxy S5 continue to be churned out of the rumor mill.

Rumors about the Galaxy S5 to feature a 64-bit Exynos processor continue to make the headlines.

Other rumors say that the design would be completely revamped and it would take after the Galaxy Note 3 and even the current 13 megapixel camera would receive significant improvements or might even be replaced by a better one.

According to ETnews, Samsung is planning to drop off the Optical Image stabilization feature due to some complications.

It is reported that Samsung is facing problems in sourcing the required parts to add OIS to Galaxy S5’s camera. This implies that Samsung could have to drop the idea of introducing OIS in Galaxy S5. But this is very unlikely as all the current high-end phones, like the LG G2 have it already on board.

Rumors are that the Galaxy S5 could launch as early as January 2014 unlike its predecessor Galaxy S4, which was unannounced until March and was then released towards the end of April.

Other rumors are that the Galaxy S5 could take the design of the Galaxy Note 3 and could be joined by another premium series of Samsung, which is rumored to be called the Galaxy F, which would finally offer a metal design to the customers.

Samsung will probably replace the 13 megapixel sensor with a new 16 megapixel, but all this currently rumored.
