This is not the first time that we are going to talk about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship device and a possible manufacturing issue, but fingers crossed, it will be the last for the flagship device. In the middle of this month, we reported on how the Galaxy S5’s camera has possibly run into manufacturing difficulties, and here are more details concerning Samsung’s difficulty with centering the optics properly within the Galaxy S5’s 16MP ISOCELL camera sensor, if one were to be more specific.
Apart from that, it is also touted that Samsung is also looking at stability issues with the coating process for the Galaxy S5’s lens module. While there has been some progress in clearing up this particular error, the South Korean conglomerate should not be too happy considering this is their flagship device that looks set to be released shortly thereafter.
Having said that, Samsung will only be able to offer around 4 to 5 million units of the Galaxy S5 at launch, compared to its original target of distributing around 5 to 7 million Galaxy S5 handsets. Ah well, there is still time left to fix everything up, and hopefully all of these issues will be ironed out not too long after.
