Samsung to rethink the Galaxy S5 “back to basics” plus new Galaxy Gear
We can’t deny that Samsung has been full of success stories in the last couple of years, and proof of that has been behind its Galaxy line-up, which has been a blockbuster since its first iteration. That said, one of the biggest reasons why we know that the current Galaxy S has been successful in its design, is the fact that almost every other phone they make looks like it. This year has been a little different, and we can see this in the Galaxy Note 3, which looks very different to the Galaxy S4. As it turns out, the company has admitted that the Galaxy S4 disappointed a lot of people because it looked too similar to the Galaxy SIII, and this is planned to change.
According to Samsung, the plans for the Galaxy S5 are to return to the basics, which in the case of Samsung means to revamp the phone as much as they can each year. In the company’s statement, this phone won’t just be about the display, but also about the feel of the phone in hand. Now an interesting twist to the announcement is that the company also plans to launch a new version of the Galaxy Gear along with this new phone. This new Gear will include more advanced functions, and also offer a less bulky design to the current model.
The Galaxy Note 4 might also see a dramatic change, even if the Galaxy S5 is not its direct inspiration. This time Samsung plans to make a phone that targets professionals that are willing to pay more for it, and not just a bigger phone with extra benefits. The company is planning to launch the Galaxy S 5 after MWC in Barcelona, so we’ll keep you posted on new developments.
