Samsung Galaxy S5 in first three months of 2014
The word out of the Asian supply network is that Samsung could be prepping the Galaxy S5 for as early as the first quarter of 2014, around January or February, which would be a pretty rapid turnaround from the previous model.
Samsung is expected to have 2K displays inside its flagship handsets in 2014 which would equate to a pixel density of around 560ppi on a 5-inch panel.
Most high-end handsets released in 2013 had 2GB of RAM, Snapdragon 800 chipsets and 1080p displays.
The Apple iphone 5S has the 64-bit A7 processor and it has been topping many CPU benchmark tests.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to have 64 bit chips from ARM or the 64-bit Exynos Octa eight-core chip.
The Galaxy S5 should have 3 or 4 Gigabytes of RAM and a 15 megabit camera.
