Samsung is rumored to bring its Galaxy S5 up to speed with the latest smartphone heavyweights like the LG G3. However, that device most often cited as the refresh is the Galaxy F, a super phone that Samsung will launch later in the year. That isn't going to stop Samsung from updating the S5 sooner. It seems Samsung's plans for a better Galaxy S5 will not be scuppered so easily as the company is reportedly set to launch such a smartphone this week!
New documents that leaked this week claim that Samsung is releasing a Galaxy S5 with LTE-Advanced. The smartphone would be able to connect to the faster networks available in Korea, and it would also have a 5.1-inch Quad Hd display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, and 3GB of RAM. All of these changes are supposedly made to keep pace with the LG G3.
The LG G3 has shaken up the Android space and 2014 could be a game of one-upmanship between the two Korean heavyweights. The G3 is better than the Galaxy S5, so Samsung will respond by making the GS5 better than the G3, at least on paper. In turn, LG is supposed to be already preparing an updated G3, a move we think the company would be wise to postpone for a few months.It could be argued that even five months is too soon to update what is essentially a new flagship in the Galaxy S5. At least Samsung has decided to wait for the initial buzz to cool first though, something LG would be wise to do. Whether this device will outright replace the existing Galaxy S5 in shops or whether it will stand alongside it at another price point remains to be seen. If today?s murmurs are to be believed, we will not have to wait long to find out. source: Phandroid
