New reports from Digital Times Korea revealed the upscale of Random Access Memory or RAM chip set on the Galaxy S5 to 4 GB which is double as much power of Galaxy S4. If Samsung will make this happen, Galaxy S5 will be the world's first successful smartphone to feature it.
Ubuntu Edge was a proposed 'high concept' smartphone with 4 GB of RAM installed but sadly failed to become the first due to shortage of funds needed and now Samsung Galaxy S5 will seem to take the title after all.
In addition to the insane 4 GB size of Galaxy S5's RAM, early reports indicated that Samsung is making the chip set slimmer without compromising performance and speed. Samsung confirmed mass production of 3 GB low-powered DDR3 RAM chip sets for mobile devices while research and development ongoing for Galaxy S5's exclusive RAM.
"Samsung's new ultra-slim memory solutions will enabled thinner smartphone designs and allow for additional battery space, while offering data transfer speed of up to 2,133 megabits per second or Mbps per pin," said by Samsung spokesperson.
At that time, the report suggests 3 GB of ultra-slim RAM design and if Samsung plans 4 GB with the same body, it means lower power consumption on the battery and bigger space for the battery unit.
Combined with Exynos 6 Processor
Apple created a global challenge with the 64-bit processing chip of iPhone 5S by which Samsung plans to deal with in 2014 using Exynos 6 chip set with 64-bit support as well. The 64-bit CPU for Galaxy S5 is said to be ARM's big.LITTLE octal-core configuration with Cortex A53/A57 cores which operates simultaneously.
Unlike with the current Exynos 5420 chipset, Exynos 6 consumes half of the usual power than the former which also means 50 per cent less amount of heat produced. Improvements on the processing power needs and reduced heat generation can increase overall battery life.
Android 4.4 Kit Kat OS Version
Google's newest Android version will bring a lot of help on the Galaxy S5 that affects overall system performance. Android 4.4 KitKat enhances user interface, improves touch response accuracy, handles multi-tasking better and requires low memory to run.
It is still unknown how much battery capacity will Samsung put on the Galaxy S5 but if the RAM chipset features ultra-thin design and eats less amount of battery while the new processor puts minimal stress, Galaxy S5 may have a decent if not outstanding battery life.
Other Rumored Features
Aside from the new processing and RAM chip sets running latest Android 4.4 Kit Kat, here are a few more rumored features coming to Galaxy S5:
- 16 MP ISOCELL camera sensor
- 560 ppi display
- 2560 x 1440 WQHD display resolution
- 5.25 inches of screen size
- Retina Eye Scanner
