Samsung Galaxy S5 tipped for April by Samsung exec

Samsung has some of the most popular smartphones on the market with its Galaxy S series of devices. Currently the Galaxy S4 is one of the most popular smartphones from Samsung. Reports are now coming in from a highly placed Samsung executive that the next generation Samsung Galaxy S smartphone will be coming in April.

Samsung’s executive vice president of mobile business said during an interview with Bloomberg on January 6 that the Samsung Galaxy S5 would be launching in April. Lee noted that Samsung launches a new flagship model around the first half of each year.

Lee also tipped that the S5 won’t be the only thing coming in April. The executive also said that a Gear successor will be coming then as well. The Galaxy Gear successor will have more advanced functions and a new design with less bulk than the original.

The Galaxy S5 is expected to have a different design than its predecessors. Some people complained that the S4 looked too much like the Galaxy S3 it replaced. Lee says that the S5 will go back to basics and be “mostly” about the cover and display. There is also an indication that Samsung may be looking at some sort of eye scanning tech. Samsung had previously said they would launch a new smartphone in 2014 with a 2k display. That could well be the S5.
