The Possible Reveal Of The Samsung Galaxy S5 But Is It Worth It?

We are already a decent ways into this new year with Valentine's Day right around the corner, and now is when we expect to see even more new tech dropping. After all, it wouldn't be the new year without a new product dropping from one of the biggest mobile companies on the market right now. Samsung and Apple have recently been going at it with each other in terms of who's mobile device can gain more attention and is better overall. Both of these companies seemingly have releases every 2 weeks or so. Even so, we as consumers know what to look out for and know what we want. Tablets are nice, and so are laptops and desktops, but nothing defines us like our phones. With that knowledge readily known, Samsung is ready to give us what we want; The Galaxy S 5.

Mind you this is not certain that as of yet. It is still only rumored, but the fact that Samsung will be revealing their next big staple product at the Mobile World Congress Unpacked 5 event. They have given us a lot already recently, along with the upcoming release of the new Pro versions of their tablets. The Unpacked 5 event will take place, again, in Barcelona on February 24th. Samsung is known for making their yearly large product announcements around late February to early March, as most of know. Even with the name of Unpacked 5 and the release of the Galaxy S4 around this same time last year, it seems next to impossible for Samsung to not annouce the Galaxy S5 at this years event.

The closer we get to Unpacked 5, the more rumors we hear. The Galaxy S5 is no exception. The new smartphone is drenched with rumors. One of the biggest rumors is the ultra high-resolution display of 2,560x1,440 pixel AMOLED display screen. Should that be true, it ensure that the sure-to-be-large screen will give us amazing display quality. This along with the 3GB of RAM and a 16 megapixel camera have been accompanying the new phone. Couple those rumors with the added rumor of the 64-bit eight core Exynos processor (made entirely by Samsung) and an incredible 4,000mAh battery, and you have yourself a phone that looks to be quite the powerhouse.

The feature rumors share their own sense of hope and fantasy as well. Some say that we could see the new phone go the way of the iPhone 5S and integrate a fingerprint scanner as well. Of course an incredible battery life just has to accompany, virtually, any new phone rumor. Others are also saying that we could see a new redesign with metal chassis to give it a more sleek and modern feel. Again, remember that all this is just speculation until the actual event goes down. And even during the event, it is still unconfirmed as to if Samsung will be announcing the S5. Even so, it does seem a bit obvious.

All eyes will be on Samsung at the Unpacked 5 event. It is still uncertain as to what the flagship product is that they will be releasing, but the talk of the internet remains the Galaxy S5 reveal. Should this happen to be the case, Apple will need to hurry up with the iPhone 6. It is only expected that they wouldn't want to leave too much room in between for their competition to get a leg up on sales.
