Samsung Electronics is said to announce 4-5 smartphones this coming 1st quarter of 2014 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and two of which is speculated to be a low-end Samsung Galaxy Note III, and their next flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S5.
One of Samsung’s core strategy is flooding the market with variants of gadgets that will cater to the widest range of choice possible. And having their flagship phones like the Samsung S3 and S4 to have its ‘mini’ counterparts with lesser size and lower specs fit this strategy as well.
ET News have reported that Samsung in turn may be cooking up a more affordable line of phablets this time, with the Galaxy Note 3, though maintaining the 5.68-inch size would use a lower resolution LCD instead of its Super AMOLED display. The 13MP rear camera is said to be bumped to a lower 8MP this time, and the other specifications that may make it more affordable.
Besides getting their smartphones in the emerging markets, Samsung also makes every move to be at the fore front of innovation. Thus, ensuring a patent on unlocking their mobile phones via an iris scan, and the inclusion of the 2560 x 1440 resolution display. Perhaps their alternative and a direct answer to iPhone’s touch or fingerprint verification technology. And possibly along with the ultra high resolution display, to be on their next flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S V.
Samsung as reported on ZDNet Korea, aims to unveil the first Quad HD 2560 x 1440 display at the Mobile World Congress next year. Though, the recent announcement of Vivo Xplay 3S in Beijing, China technically won’t make Samsung the first to sport the QHD display.
