What to watch for from Samsung in 2014
Samsung had a busy CES this year, announcing some new products alongside expected improvements to old favorites. But if you missed the show, we’ve put together a little cheat sheet to get you caught up on what Samsung has in store for consumers in 2014.
Ultra HD TVs
Samsung is going hard after the Ultra HD market in 2014. The executive VP of Samsung’s Visual Display department already predicted that Ultra HD displays will dominate the market and the company is backing his boast by offering up 10 Ultra HD models in 2014. That’s up from three models in 2013. With Ultra HD TVs offering four times the resolution of the current HD TVs, there’s certainly a market for such improved visual fidelity.
Samsung Galaxy S5
Next in the line of Samsung’s hugely popular Galaxy S line of smartphones, the S5 is set to debut in the coming weeks. On top of the list of expectations for the S5 is an increase in resolution size to 2560×1440. Alongside improved screen resolution is an eye scanner that would unlock phones by scanning a user’s retina. The S5 could also see a big increase to its camera, as the S4’s 13-megapixel pales in comparison to the 20-MP and 41-MP counts of its competition.
Samsung is readying some new digital cameras of varying size and power. One model, the WB2200F is a bridge camera featuring a 60x optical zoom and 16.3-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor. Meanwhile on the compact size of things is the WB50F which has a 16.2-MP CMOS sensor and 12x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization.
New Galaxy Tablets
The Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro are also getting some worthwhile refreshes in 2014. The Note Pro is going to appear with q 12.2 inch display – a first for the line. It’ll feature a resolution of 2560 x 1600 along with an 8-MP rear camera and 2-MP front camera, 3 GB of Ram and either 32 or 64 GB of storage. The new Tab Pro offers the same specs as the Note without the S-Pen. It also comes in a few different sizes ranged from 12.2 inches to 8.4 inches.
