Samsung to have the biggest booth at MWC 2014 - plenty of space to show off the Galaxy S5
In an article talking about how Samsung and LG will “clash” at Mobile World Congress 2014 next week, ZDNet Korea mentions that the former has “secured the biggest booth at the event.” Since Samsung is preparing to announce its new Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone at MWC, it’s no wonder that it wanted to have enough space to show off the handset. It’s said that Samsung will also unveil a Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch, plus a new Galaxy Tab 4 series at the trade fair in Barcelona, and these will certainly attract even more people to Samsung’s booth.

Samsung officials told ZDNet that the company plans to show that it can “breakthrough the current limits of the smartphone market and still wow consumers.” Reportedly, JK Shin, Samsung’s co-CEO and head of Mobile Division, will personally present the new Galaxy S5 at MWC.

From what we are hearing, the S5 may have a 5.2-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, 16MP rear camera, fingerprint recognition, and 3GB of RAM. These are features that can wow users, indeed, but it remains to be seen if they’re all included in the real device.

LG also has new smartphones to show off at MWC 2014, including the 5.9-inch G Pro 2, and the new L Series III (LG L90, LG L70, LG L40). Park Jong Seok, who leads LG’s mobile division, will fly to Barcelona to attend MWC, and maybe to unveil new products, like the rumored LG G2 Mini.

It definitely looks like we’ll have a lot of awesome novelties to see at MWC this year, so we can hardly wait for the event to debut (this will happen on Monday, February 24).

The 3gb ram is a given considering the Note 3 already has 3.

The thing is that TouchWiz devices NEED 3gb of RAM because on idle it already uses twice the amount of RAM that my Butterfly uses, leaving it with the same amount of available RAM as my phone.

Untrue. Every Samsung device before the Note 3 has less than 3GB of RAM & they all run just fine. For instance, my Note 2 ran 4.3 effortlessly with 2GB of RAM. Go spew your nonsense elsewhere.

i call bull on this yes they work with less ram but the lag is ridicules i hope the tizen is an option for replacing touchwiz we have to look at it like the phone then touchwiz on that then google on that so communication is reduced the bus and ram need topped off to make faster or like apple just do your own / tizen from what i have seen of tizen 3.1 its super fast faster then apple i hate apple but i like the speed things open because there are not two systems fighting each other to get things done.

You can call bull all you want, but my Note 2 does not lag at all.

Not nonsense. Pretty sure Note 3 has MORE features than your Note 2, and despite what you say it STILL uses twice my RAM at idle, and all FUTURE Samsung devices will only have more and more features. I've used the Note 3 for about two weeks now, I can tell you that it definitely has random lag and slowdown at times. But thats not to say its slow, because it obviously loads apps much faster than a S4 pro. But disappointing how a device like that can have random slow downs. Definitely blame it on touchwiz rather than the device itself.

I dont think htc wants you to have 3 gb of ram, it would easily kill off that dinky 2000 mah battery quickly

Sammy phones need more ram because their UI is less efficient and bulky, so it needs more to stay on pare with other makers.

well,if it (the GS5) features a QHD screen then the power consumption will be more compared to the 1080p one, then ,in that case weather the 3200mAh battery will be enough or will it run out of juice early,as it "MAY" also feature a snapdragon 805 processor(according to the android authority)?? -Thank you.

S5 will be another gimmick marketed well which is a bunch of extra stuff in a phone that doesn't matter and will hardly be used or have a meaningful purpose...honestly i think the only phones that are going to make a breakthrough in design and overall experience is the iPhone 6, HTC One 2, and maybe the next nexus device but i think Samsung is going to have a lot of stolen ideas and try to pack it all in one phone and market it well...doubt i will genuinely be impressed

It's not hate. It's a mix of stupidity and double standards

"a bunch of extra stuff in a phone that doesn't matter and will hardly be used or have a meaningful purpose" you mean like every version of the iPhone?
