Samsung Galaxy S5 to come at a low-key MWC event: no Quad HD screen, no eye scanner
Samsung is believed to introduce a new design for the Galaxy S5, as well as improved hardware, but the company’s goal with this launch will be to tap into the corporate segment with improved business features like the Knox security app.
Interestingly, Samsung is also said to have listened to criticism about the widely perceived to be gimmicky S4 features (like Air View), and has toned them down this time. The Galaxy S4 is said to have underwhelming sales and even to have been outpaced by the Galaxy Note 3, and that might have something to do with the lower-key event this year. A massive 10-year patent deal between Google and Samsung might have also caused this surprising shift in strategy.
Finally, whispers are that Samsung will also introduce a new, upgraded version of its Galaxy Gear smartwatch, along with other devices at Mobile World Congress. We will be there covering the event live for you, so stay tuned.
