The new phone will include an improve battery and camera will be released about the same time as an upgraded Galaxy Gear smartwatch, but the company has yet to reveal an official release date yet.
According to the same sources, Samsung might be selling the new phone for less than previous models in the S series after encouragement by at least one wireless carrier.
The release of the next phone from the world’s biggest cellphone makers will probably be named S5. The sales of its predecessor, the S4, have fallen short of expectations.
According to Roberta Cozza, an analyst at Gartner Inc, Better specs don’t cut it. They need to find a way to get users to pick the Samsung brand across different types of devices to better compete with Apple.
Samsunsg’s main competition in the premium smartphone market has been with Apple, but also with a plethora of Chinese competitors selling devices for as little as $100.
