Companies look to the fullest and have everything they have prepared for the new year at CES. Yes, the companies involved in the mobile industry details on smartphones and tablets for the Mobile World Congress event this year will take place from 24 to 27 February in Barcelona as always.
Samsung, for example, has just confirmed that the new GALAXY S5 will hit the market between March or April, but has not given many details. In an interview with Bloomberg, Young Hee Lee, executive vice president of Samsung, confirmed the imminent arrival of the new device.
As far as rumored new mobile will have a new design and will have an iris reader, this to counter Apple Touch ID technology, and certainly not to be embroiled in more legal scandals patents.
As for specs quad core processor is not known whether it will be Exynos or Snapdragon, or even both as with the S4 is handled. You may have 4GB of RAM, 16MPX camera and a 4000mAh battery.
One detail that Lee left to know is that the mobile will not be presented during the MWC, but obviously know much more about this smartphone in this event. The official presentation will be made in the event that the typical Samsung prepares each year for the occasion.
However, according to Mobile Review’s Eldar Murtazin we will see Sammy’s new flagship Galaxy S5 handset unveiled at 6pm in Barcelona at its Samsung Unpacked 2014 event at Mobile World Congress on 23 February. He also claims we can expect the same price as the S4 which was £630 (U$1.035.- off contract) at launch. We doubt the device part is true, although the event time and date sound correct.
The new UI appears to take the best bits from every OS so far to create an at-a-glance feed of everything happening in the user’s world. It seems to do the same as Windows Phone does in using Tiles to offer instant information from different apps. Even a message from a friend is displayed as a full tile with her photo and a snippet of the text.
Real world information is also updated with your team’s result, your flight times, map routes, run times and even spending.
