There’s no doubt in our mind that the Galaxy S4 will be one of the biggest selling phones in 2013, although it’s worth pointing out that sales would have been even higher if Samsung had delivered a new design. Many of us assumed that Samsung were going to make several changes to the hardware (which they did) and also the design (which they did not).
However, we started to get an idea a month or two ahead of the S4 release that the design was going to stay pretty much the same, as any hope of the flexibly display being used was squashed following news of production problems.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 design strategy — It looks as though the Galaxy Note 3 will stick with its current design as well, and so will feature several hardware upgrades as the S4 has. So this means Samsung’s next flagship handset to feature an all-new innovative design will be the S5, as we’re told that Samsung has now codenamed the strategy Design 3.0.
As yet we do not know for certain what this means, but one thing we do know, the look of the Galaxy S5 will be far different to that of the S4. We say this because the S5 is the most likely smartphone to come with the much-anticipated flexible display. While we do not expect a radical Galaxy S5 in terms of looks, there’s a Good chance that the screen could wrap around the edges.
Having said that, if the flexible display is still a long way off, then maybe we can expect an aluminum Galaxy S5? This could make sense seeing as though some of you are unhappy with the cheap feel of the polycarbonate body, and would rather Samsung take the Apple, HTC and also the Nokia approach instead.
