    [RUMOR] Samsung May Move Galaxy S5 Launch Up to January Due to Weak Galaxy S4 Sales


    Here's a strange rumor which we don't necessarily believe, but might be worth sharing. Supposedly, sales of the Samsung Galaxy S4 were weaker than Samsung expected/wanted. Because of this they are considering moving up the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 to January of 2014. Along with this rumor comes some additional intel. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    It has now been 100 days, since they bragged about the first 20 million units shipped. If the 10 million units a month sales rate kept up, we should have passed a total of 50 million Galaxy S4s shipped mark sometime in late September, early October. And yet, we haven’t heard about Samsung passing the milestone of either 50 million, or 40 or 30 million SGS4s. And we most certainly would have, if they’ve had anything to be proud about.

    Now Korean site joseilbo.com reports that Samsung’s management is taking steps to accelerate things again, by pushing S4’s successor – Galaxy S5 launch date to January, with availability in February, from the scheduled March/April.

    Earlier rumors suggested that Samsung Galaxy S5 will have Exynos 5430 64-bit CPU, 16 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, new design and fully metallic chassis.
    As you can see, if the source of this info can be trusted it confirms earlier rumors of a metal case design, but also shares that the SGS5 will come with a far more robust camera and a 64-bit Samsung processor. For the most part we remain highly skeptical of most of this info, but we will continue to report any further evidence which might corroborate any of it.

    Interesting news Mr.Storm! :thumbup:
    However, I would rather Samsung keep their original late Spring/early summer release date and spend that extra time tweaking the S5 to perfection. As opposed to putting out a "rushed" product, which they've been known to do in the past. Stop worrying so much about being FIRST, and focus more on being "the best".
    My 2 cents
