The International Business Times reports that Samsung will offer the Samsung Galaxy S5 in both Android and Tizen andthat it will have an enhanced camera, fused with optical image stabilization feature and will have an exterior made of aluminum and magnesium.
Though Tizen is an OS in-development under the supervision of Samsung, the tech giant and Apple supplier is not ready to let go of Android OS for its devices. The Business Times reported that the South Korean tech giant has delayed the release of a flagship smartphone running on the homemade OS this year.
Samsung CEO Boo-Keun Yoo said that the company plans to use Tizen on connecting all of their devices including mobile phones and tablets. The closest thing that the company can do, speculates the Business Times, is release the Samsung Galaxy S5 with both an Android and Tizen version.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will also have an optical image stabilization camera which shoots well than digital ones, reported the Business Times. The new camera technology is already available in Nokia’s PureView cameras and HTC’s “ultrapixel” features.
Optical image stabilization reduces blurring when capturing something in option, compensates panning and tilting the camera, and is compatible with Digital Image Stabilisation. The special feature stabilizes a recorded image by varying the optical path to the sensor.
Adding to the upgraded specs and two options of phones, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will not come in a plastic casing but will instead be possibly available in an aluminum exterior. There have been reports claiming that the company sent engineers to Vietnam to investigate the possibility of using aluminum and magnesium components for creating new casing on future Galaxy smartphones.
Samsung has been criticized for lack of innovation on upgrading the physical components used on the body of their devices, which is commonly viewed as cheap and weak against competing devices like HTC One and Sony Xperia Z.
