Betly, 10 Oct 2013Oh Samsung you feel jealous about SONY ? :)About what?
boosook, 10 Oct 2013Samsung's big bosses are lost in the darkness, if they think that a 64-bit 8-core chipset and ... moreApple was brilliant by introducing the 64 bit but Samsung was less than intelligent to deliver the 64bit?
Karate Obachi, 10 Oct 2013Only 1 question: is it curved?maybe yes...
CC, 10 Oct 2013And if you were running Samsung, what would you do?Impress their costumers. How? That's their job, let them think how.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2013Samsung has been in business since 1938. Should I say anything more?Might be yes but not in mobile arena. They came late in mobile space after Nokia
This seems impossible at first but if you think about it for a while it actually sounds possible.
Look at the competition - you have LG, Sony with Snapdragon 800 that are more powerful. And the S4 brings nothing really new to the table. No evolution in camera quality (boosting megapixels is no evolution, where is OIS?), build quality very poor etc. So I think maybe Samsung doesn't want to wait until April to release the S5.
And my advice to Samsung: clean up the TouchWiz because even 4 GB or RAM won't be enough if you'll pack more useless features like Smart-(..).
So, they finally use (sh*tty looking)the fake leather plastic on their back, probably finger print scanner, 8 cores and the same,whell known laggy TouchWizz.
aqua24, 10 Oct 2013If this is true it just showsThe competition is just getting tougher each year. More phones ar... moreyeah it is tough that they are releasing countless phones every now and then with not too much changes at all but higher price. ever since the groundbreaking OIS and lowlight photography, they are now all following the route and making optical image stabilization and lowlight performance.
It will run android?
Then phone is fail.
Android is the worse OS out there, the only reason is so popular is because of monopoly.
There is no any other serious OS to deal with it. Samsung must and has to make its own OS with equal or more features ,usability and speed as iOS, which is the best OS at the moment by far.
Samsung it would be good to by Ubuntu and make a better Ubuntu OS...
About the hardware... It must stops make cheap crappy phone bodies! It's time to make something for carbon, or titanium or a metal that will give to the phone a solid and quality finish.
Redesign of body for a new generation of devices that will have many other gadgets that will work together, an ecosystem of gadgets.
Finger print reader! Important!
I have enjoyed my experience with samsung so far, however since the s4 there have been far to many models out offerimg different specs. Personally do not release the s5 in january, instead use the extra 3 months r&d to fine tune existing software. Get rid of all the bloatware. 64bit chips are not really needed yet are they? how about putting most of your eggs in 1 basket. So i would love waterproofing, i would like a camera to give out some serious improvements. More mp are not needed but OIS and low light really need a serious improvement. Personally i am not bothered by the materials however in the s5 i think a new design and feel would be good. S4 was a stepping stone in design terms over the s3 but an s5 needs a whole new design. Storage needs to be minimum 32gb standard with micro sd. Also mini usb 3.0 like note 3 is a great addition. Decent quality headphones out of the box. Anything with current snapdragon processors are super fast anyway so im not to bothered about that so much. 3gb ram for sure. To combat the way the android system cant close apps properly. not a samsung issue to be fair. I dont think a bigger screen is needed but if they do increase it hopefully it still would fit in to a S4 sized body.
If this is true it just showsThe competition is just getting tougher each year. More phones are coming out almost every month. Companies now have to come out with new products every six months instead of one year. Only apple can do that but their luck will run out if the next generation iphone 6 still have a 4" screen.

Anonymous, 10 Oct 2013I hope both of them should stay forever. Anything more???that is better.
It's a bad move. they must delay the release instead of making it in january.

LG G2 should be also aggressive in marketing. Till then, Samsung rules.
