A couple of the most awaited 2014 flagships have already been unveiled, including Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and Sony’s Xperia Z2. Both use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and it is believed that the forthcoming All New HTC One will opt for the very same processor as well. Qualcomm doesn’t expect Snapdragon 805 devices until May, which means that some other manufacturer may take the crown of becoming the first to ship a phone with Snapdragon 805. Could it be South Korea’s Pantech? A new rumor certainly wants us to believe that.
Samsung’s 2014 flagship, the Galaxy S5, is going to be released on April 11th. The smartphone will be released in over 100 countries around the world, and Samsung’s home turf, South Korea, is usually on the list of the very first countries to receive its latest products. The company needs to maximize Galaxy S5 sales from the get go, and even though South Korea accounts for a fraction of Samsung’s global phone sales, the company’s new flagship might not get off to a good start, in fact it may not get off the line at all.
