Samsung Galaxy S5 is all but confirmed to be launching later this month during the Mobile World Congress event. It is unclear exactly when this announcement will take place, let alone when Samsung is planning on launching their next flagship smartphone.
A Chinese blogging website, Weibo, has hinted that the Galaxy S5 will launch in three different internal storage sizes. They believe the device will come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants. We could see the premium models with a metal body have the option of 128GB of internal storage and then see the standard models have the option of a 16GB model.
Latest tips also indicate that the Galaxy S5 will launch in both Black and White variants. We can only assume Samsung will expand on these colors in the future. Whether or not they will be available worldwide or officially sold in select regions could be anyone’s guess. We’re getting closer to the speculated launch date of sometime in April. This would give them the entire month of March to manufacture and assemble their launch batch, so an announcement at MWC 2014 is becoming more likely.
With other rumors such as the in-house Exynos 6 processor as well as the Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, what do you think of all the different variations to choose from? Could Samsung be spreading themselves too thin? This has the potential to create shortages for specific models and could lead to some negative press for the Korean electronics giant.
