Samsung had launched their Galaxy S4 this year and after an initial round of brisk sales when it was believed to out sell even the iPhone 5, sales began to slump. To cater for their market presence, Samsung it appears have decided to come out with their next device the Galaxy S5 earlier than its scheduled deliverance. For this reason the S5 can be expected to be in the market by early 2014.
ETNews also adds that the S5 is going to come with a camera which would be of 16 MP resolution and based on CMOS technology. The camera could be either an in-house development by Samsung’s own LSI division or could be a Sony make. The LSI division at Samsung does the manufacturing of chip and the camera sensors. This division gives a strong competition to Sony who is otherwise the market leaders when it comes to high resolution CMOS based devices.
In the aspect of sensing devices, LSI is also going to come out with an 8 MP camera that would have the ability to separate the pixels. This would lead to reduction in glare and noise of the final product while also allowing users to take clear pictures even in low light conditions. LSI division has also been showing off it 13 and 16 MP sensors to prospective customers.
Where Sony has an edge over the LSI is that they cater to a larget segment of the market and hence enjoy economies of scale. Naturally their products are cheaper. LSI is therefore also going ahead with mass production processes to be able to match Sony for the pricing aspect. They would be trying out their end product on the Elctro-Mechanics division at Samsung itself which has been developing a 13 MP sensor having OIS technology in it,
Insiders at Samsung have also confirmed that there is a big thing so far as the sensor goes in the next Samsung product of S5. No way they can miss out on this aspect given the huge improvement that its competitors such as Apple, Sony, Nokia an such have affected on their devices.
