Samsung to launch 4 or 5 new devices in early 2014
11 December, 2013 | Technology
It looks like Samsung are getting ready for an extremely busy start to 2014.
Reports have suggested that Samsung are set to be releasing four or possibly even five new devices within the first few months of 2014.
The reports also mention the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5, which has been rumoured to be available by the end of March.
If we can believe these sources, Samsung are likely to start unveiling their new devices as soon as January 2014.
Rumoured to be unveiled:
1. Samsung Galaxy S5 – The Galaxy S4 smashed sales records and Samsung will be hoping to do the same with the release of the Galaxy S5 in 2014.
The device is expected to pack a 5inch 2K resolution screen and include a fingerprint scanner similar to that of the Touch ID sensor for the iPhone 5S.
2. Samsung Galaxy Grand Lite – The phone packs a 5inch WVGA screen, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a microSD slot to bulk that up. The rumours suggest this device will be announced early February.
3. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite - Expected to be announced late February but unfortunately there's no word on specification yet. However according to reports it will be available in black or white and is likely to have 5.7inch display.
Due to the name we can presume it will be a less powerful, budget version of the Galaxy Note 3.
4. Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 – The Galaxy Gear didn’t get the best reviews but the rumours suggest that the next generation gear will be about 15% to 20% thinner than the previous model, which will make it a more pleasant device for your wrist.
Samsung were also quoted saying that you'll be able to use the Galaxy Gear 2 with the Galaxy S5 smartphone, meaning it is likely to share the stage with the Galaxy S5 towards the end of March.
While these reports may only be rumours, it is quite possible that Samsung will be release a few devices early next year as it does fit with all the other rumours we’ve been hearing about Samsung.
