As this year approaches its end, speculation about 2014 has started making the rounds. We have already heard a few theories about what to expect from Samsung in 2014, latest reports coming in from Korea suggest that all Samsung 2014 flagship devices will have similar cameras, 16 megapixels possibly accompanied by optical image stabilization. Basically what this means is that if the Galaxy S5 comes with a 16 megapixel camera, it is highly likely that the Galaxy Note 4 will tout it as well. Though it won’t come as a surprise, Samsung has always used the same camera in its Galaxy S and Galaxy Note flagships.
A report suggests that the company has placed orders for 181 million 16 megapixel camera modules. The number contradicts another recent report, which claimed that Samsung only aims to sell 126 million high-end devices, which would include all flagships, in 2014. So why would the company order 55 million additional modules when it doesn’t aim to sell that many units? Could this mean that the company really announce that premium Galaxy F smartphone we have been hearing about? Too soon to say now, besides, these speculative reports must always be taken with a grain of salt. The previous report suggested that Samsung is going to focus more on tablets and low end smartphones next year.
