Samsung Galaxy S5: Back to Basics

Whilst Samsung has took on the courage to admit that the public didn’t really warm up to the Galaxy S4 – in not seeing much difference between the S3 & S4 – they’ve gone to say the Galaxy S5 would pack a rather different design.

Samsung Exec Lee Young Hee confirmed the Galaxy S5 would arrive in March or April – shortly after the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona – accompanied by a brand new version of the Galaxy Gear SmartWatch which itself will have more advanced functions apposed to the current “bulky design” (which we currently have for review).

As the annual norm the rumor-mill doesn’t seem to have days off. Former bloggers have suggested that the new galaxy S offering will include a possible eye-scanner in the handset for greater security, though that’s still being studies.

The latests from @evleaks shows a possible TouchWiz home screen that would be a very sharp u-turn from the current offering. If ever. When all is said and done, only then will we get news on local availability and offerings.

Of course, the above picture is for illustration purposes.
