Samsung Galaxy S5 likely to appear on the shelves in April 2014

There have been rumours of a January 2014 shelf date after disappointing sales of the Galaxy S4 (pictured above). But it seems wires have been crossed with regard to the Samsung Galaxy S5.

According to Korean site ET News, January is actually the start of production for Samsung's next flagship, with a total of 800,000 to 1 million devices expected to be produced in the first month, reaching 6 million by the end of February. By April, there should be enough stock to go round. That's the theory anyway.

Samsung is said to be looking at releasing two versions of the Galaxy S5, a premium metal framed version with flexible 5-inch OLED display and a more standard plastic cased 5-inch AMOLED model. Presumably different models for different markets. The report adds that the phone should also come with a 64-bit processor and 3GB RAM, along with a 4000mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. Samsung's newest 16MP ISOCELL camera has already been rumoured and is again flagged up in this report.

If production is starting in January, I think we can expect a lot more leaks in the coming weeks, hitting a crescendo as we hit 2014. We'll make sure you know about the pick of them.
