The competition in the market of mobile devices is certainly going to stiffen with the passage of time and we are expecting a lot of awesome devices from tech giants in 2014. Samsung, being among the market leaders, is gearing up to launch some of the finest devices on the horizon. Samsung is expected to launch mobile devices with ultra-high resolution, significantly higher than WQHD resolution which amounts to 2560 x 1440 pixels. The future plans of the company include the emergence of 560 ppi AMOLED panels for phones. And that’s not the limit and we are also looking forward to 4K resolution phones from Samsung in 2015. This ultra-high resolution amounts to 3840 x 2160 pixels, much higher than the present standards in the market.
Another front that would see rapid progress over the next year include wearable and flexible devices, and Samsung is also on the forefront of this domain. Samsung has entered the market with its amazing Galaxy Gear Watch, and intends on improving the device with foldable displays within a couple of years. During 2013, the company managed to sell over 100 million units of Galaxy S and Galaxy Note which is a remarkable feat.
Coming back to the specs of smartphones, Samsung is also expected to include 16 MP optically stabilised mobile camera (OIS) module on its high end phones in 2014. Most probably the first Samsung phone to see this remarkable camera would be Samsung Galaxy S5 and it would also subsequently be seen on Galaxy Note 4 and other high end devices from the company. So far it’s not clear whether Sony or Samsung’s LSI division would provide these camera modules. Although Sony has a wider experience, Samsung LSI has also established its name with the recent launch of its remarkable ISO CELL mobile camera technology. This technology aims at providing better exposure and reduction of blur. However, so far only 13 megapixel modules have been released with this technology so let’s see how it deals with 16 megapixels.
The same publication has also claimed that Samsung has already ordered some 181 million 16 megapixel modules, although it’s not clear whether these modules would be manufactured by Sony or Samsung LSI. And regardless of the manufacturer, this certainly is great news for photography buffs out there.
It is also rumored that Samsung’s future phones, starting with Galaxy S5, will have a 64 bit Exynos processor, the Exynos 6 series of cipsets. The LTE-enabled devices, will continue to use Qualcomm’s 64-bit chips. 4G of RAM would also be the the next step considering that Samsung was the first one to use 3G of RAM on Galaxy Note 3.
It would also be interesting to see how other tech giants like Apple, HTC and LG take these developments and respond. Naturally, we can also expect to see some high tech advancements from these companies.
