article imageSamsung Galaxy S5 release date in 2014 and more confirmed details

By Milton Este     Nov 11, 2013 in Technology
For those eagerly waiting for the Galaxy S5, it isn't coming at the end of 2013 like many hoped it would. Instead, it will most likely arrive in early 2014 to line up with its one-year release of the Galaxy S4.
In light of this all, there are several interesting developments Samsung has inexplicitly revealed that we will likely see in the Galaxy S5.
Samsung confirmed the development of a 16MP camera featuring a rumored ISOCELL sensor when it presented this technology to over 350 analysts in a Seoul conference on Nov. 6. The ISOCELL sensor is supposed to improve picture quality especially under low-lighting. This is done by physically isolating each individual pixel by mounting a physical barrier around each pixel. The ISOCELL quality comparison was displayed in their press-conference release slide:
After Apple equipped their new iPhones with a 64-bit processor, Samsung is looking to do the same thing. Stephen Woo, System LSI president, stated that Samsung will first offer a 64-bit processor based on ARM's core before releasing an optimized IP-cores. However, unlike Apple, Samsung did not code Android and so they will need Google to write the 64-bit version for it. Nevertheless, Samsung will definitely try to come out first with 3GB of RAM for improved performance.
Speaking of Android, the Galaxy S5 is expected to come with Android 4.4 KitKat. Android 4.4 offers several improvements including a revamped NFC payment gateway, platform stability, immersive mode, "OK Google" voice navigation commands. More information can be found over at PC Advisor UK.
There will also be a change in the screen display as well as resolution. Samsung is likely to implement a WQHD 2,560 x 1,440 resolution and 560 ppi pixel density display on the Galaxy s5. As for the actual screen size, Samsung will most likely keep this at around 5 inches.
Suggested release date is March 2014 to coincide with the one year release date of the Galaxy S4 in March 2013.
