New revelations feeding speculation about the Samsung Galaxy S5

It seemed pretty quiet the last days of the Samsung Galaxy S5 gossip front. But a number of revelations – some from the pen of Samsung itself – just stir for old and new speculation yet again.


So last week was clear that Samsung has started large-scale production of 5.25-inch Amoled screens with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. You do not have insider to have to understand that it comes to the screen of the Galaxy S5. These are screens – reportedly – the same subpixel layout that we know from the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3, ie subpixel is a kind of diamond shape. This layout allows for a sharper image than tradionalere Pentile subpixel variants that Samsung used to the Galaxy S3 – apart of course from the fact that the screen now in production has gone with an almost absurdly high pixel density of 560 pixels per inch, which anyway for a receiving set-sively sharp image will provide.

It was also clear that Samsung probably the Consumer Electronics Show – on January 7 starts in Las Vegas – will take this opportunity to unveil the next generation Exynos processor from our own kitchen. On the program, the Exynos 6 series, which will be the direct successor of the Exynos 5 Octa we already encountered in 2013 in certain gear version of the Galaxy S4 and Note 3.

This Exynos 6 series is the slain dyed 64-bit version of Samsung’s ‘octacore’ chips, which basically consist of four fast and four energy-efficient cores. Samsung comes with its own 64-bit processor should not be a surprise welcome. And it seems, therefore, that we all can go with the new chip. Know next week

Incidentally, it is certain that the Exynos processor chip 6 will be that we will come next year. In Samsung’s high-end devices at The pipelineie even a processor, the Exynos S. This Exynos S will – are not based on ARM’s processor architecture, but on a design from Samsung itself – unlike previous Exynos chip. The processor is at least one and a half times as fast as the 800 Snapdragon SoC that can be found in the Dutch Galaxy Note 3 – and that’s not wrong.

Whether the Galaxy S5 will be a Exynos 6 or Exynos processor equipped S is not to say. Let’s wait and see before the unveiling of one or both at ease. But who still had doubts about a next-generation processor for the Galaxy S5, can now look forward to plenty of new processor options, at least for the unit.


Besides the aforementioned processor and display news is today also the unveiling of Samsung’s new eight gigabit LPDDR4 RAM modules for mobile devices. On the basis of these modules can – according to Samsung itself – be integrated into a memory modules with a capacity of four gigabytes fairly simple:

With four of the 8Gb chips, a single 4GB LPDDR4 package can providence the highest level of performance available today

And this time you do not take a genius to conclude that we catch a glimpse of what theoretical awaits us in the Galaxy S5 – as we fervently hope, at least. Add to that the new memory type twice as fast as the current RAM modules include the Galaxy Note 3, and 40% more energy efficient, and the picture of the S5 is again a bit more interesting – or at least more concrete – become.

With the new year at the door, we expect that more and more, and hopefully clearer, details will emerge over the Galaxy S5. But Samsung knowing there will be a lot of questions remain – until the moment of the unveiling of the device , the end of February or sometime in March.
