Samsung Galaxy S5 to launch in January with metal body, 16MP OIS camera and 64-bit Exynos processor: Report

Samsung's trend of launching the Galaxy S series device in Spring is going to have a stop next year. According to Korean Media Naver, Samsung will be unveiling its next smartphone in Galaxy S series, the Samsung Galaxy S5 in Winter, January 2014. The reason behind this pre-pone is the disappointing sales of Galaxy S4 across the globe.

Samsung's launch events for Galaxy S smartphones have occurred in March, February, May, and most recently, March again for the Galaxy S4. Now a new rumour claims that we won't be waiting till March again to get an official look at the Galaxy S5, and suggests that Samsung could be planning to introduce the phone as soon as January.

According to Naver, Samsung is not at all pleased with the sales of Galaxy S4, and they think it could have done even more better. As a result, Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy S5 very early, in January 2014, with actual availability will be tipped for February. 

According to recent report and rumours, the Galaxy S5 will sport metal construction instead of plastic, 64-bit Exynos 5430 processor which will feature eight-core heterogeneous multi-processing, and updated 16MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, improved low-light performance and ISOCELL image sensor. The smartphone will be running on Android 4.4 KitKat.

As nothing is confirmed yet, it's better to take this report with a pinch of salt.
