Samsung Q1 2014 roadmap includes five smartphones including Galaxy S5

Samsung NameWith 2013 winding down and most product announcements now out of the way, manufacturers are turning their attention to 2014. Details today emerged about what Samsung could have in store for us for the first quarter of next year. While much of the attention has been focused on the upcoming Galaxy S5 (model number SM-G900S perhaps?), Korea’s ETNews reports that the manufacturer is planning to launch four or five smartphones. Alongside the new flagship smartphone will be two mid-tier ones and two entry-level ones.

The mid-tier level will be represented by the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite (bearing model number SM-N7505?) and Galaxy Grand Lite (GT-I9060?). The former will be a cheaper version of the Galaxy Note with downgraded specifications while the latter will be a less powerful variant of the Galaxy Grand 2 unveiled in late November.

The Galaxy Grand Lite is expected to come with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, Google Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (or 4.3 by launch time), a 5-inch WVGA (480×800) display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a VGA front camera, a 2,100mAh battery and dual-SIM support.

Little is known about the entry-level models at this point. If nothing else, we can expect improved specifications such as better processors, displays and cameras.

This Samsung Q1 2014 roadmap is likely for its home country of Korea and may differ a bit in other markets.

  1. Jerome,

    As a product designer, my studio uses tablets for sketching and so we were keenly interested in Samsung’s ATIV Q (Haswell i5, Wacom SPen, 13.3″ size, incredible resolution, etc) and were equally disappointed with it’s removal from the market due to alledged IP issues. Have you heard if there is an ATIV Q successor on the horizon? Maybe the same product but with a Haswell i7, more RAM (8 to 16gb), the updated GPU 5000 and even nixing the Android OS if necessary?

    May thanks for any possible intel on what we can expect.

    1. Hi Scott,

      I’ve not heard of anything but will keep an eye out. This particular story focused on the smartphones but it’s likely that Samsung is also planning some sort of tablet refresh as well.

      I’ll definitely post anything I find out here!

      1. Thanks Jerome – we hope you have a restful Holiday season.
