Samsung’s trick of driving attention away from iPhone 5s
It’s only a few weeks to the launch of iPhone 5s and already there are reliable rumours about the features of the next Samsung’s flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S5. South Korea’s Electronic Times News gave an update that the anticipated smart gadget of 2014 will boast a 16MP camera fitted with anti-shake technology, the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) for better video recording and photo shooting. Originally OIS was expected to feature in Galaxy Note 3’s 13MP camera but delays in supply of parts seem to have pushed Samsung to suspend inclusion of the OIS in Note 3 and now they are hoping to have it in S5. This might not augur well with Samsung as the OIS technology can still make it in the market this year with LG G2 smartphone.
The rumour about the features of S5 is giving the Korean company momentum as everyone is also talking about the upcoming Note 3 event in Berlin at the beginning of September. Leaked specifications for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 indicate that the device will have a massive 5.7-inch screen, 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
According to Technoradar, the design for S5 has been codenamed ‘Design 3.0′ which has one mission, to make the next successor of S4 a revolutionary phone. Too bad HTC One had to beat Galaxy S4 this year, and it is up to S5 to reclaim the top title Samsung held in 2012 with the S3. It could be that Samsung is thinking of boosting S5’s reputation by ensuring it comes with the bending screen technology it showcased at trade shows early this year.
Enough with the rumours, let’s relax and wait for the events of September; is iPhone 5s’ gold casing sleeker? The only thing I could have against Note3 is the outstretched screen size but it seems Galaxy Mega is doing just fine!
