Samsung Galaxy S5 Coming In February

Samsung Electronics will unveil a new version of its flagship Galaxy S smartphone later this month. In addition, the Wi-Fi enabled Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and Tab Pro 10.1 and 8.4 will be available in the U.S. beginning Feb. 13.

Samsung sent out invitations on Tuesday for "Samsung unPacked 5" event on February 24 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The S5 is rumored to feature a bigger screen (5.2-inch Quad HD ?), an improved rear camera and biometric functions such as iris recognition or a fingerprint scanner. It may also come with an improved Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

In November, Samsung published a patent in the U.S. for an iris-scanning technology, suggesting that the company may be considering the use of eye-recognition for people authentication in future devices.

KDB Daewoo Securities Research, a Korea-based stock investment banking firm, has recently provided more information about the Galaxy S5 and its upcoming rival, Apple's iPhone 6. Baseless speculation? It could be, but still, here are the basic specs for the two devices, according to Koreans:

But until then, Samsung.com, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Tiger Direct, PC Richard and Sons, Fry's, and Newegg will all start accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro Series.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 will be available in March 2014. Verizon Wireless will be the first to offer the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 with 4G LTE connectivity later this quarter.

Samsung?s new Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro series includes four models - Note Pro 12.2 and Tab Pro 12.2, 10.1 and 8.4.

Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro 12.2 are the first 12.2-inch tablets with high-resolution WQXGA (2560 x 1600) Super Clear LCDs and widescreen aspect ratios of 16:10, with more than 4 million pixels. They are engineered with 3GB of RAM and a larger screen for optimal viewing.

Developed and designed for the 12.2-inch Note Pro and Tab Pro, Multi Window lets users view up to four applications simultaneously. The Multi Window supports quick controls, like drag and drop for easy cut and paste and one-touch presets, to quickly launch commonly used Multi Window app configurations.

The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is powered by a Snapdragon 800 2.3 GHz quad core processor.

All tablets in the Note Pro and Tab Pro series are outfitted with Magazine UX, Samsung's new user interface that's built right into the home screen layout. This customizable layout brings users' most-frequented content?games, notes, apps, e-mail and more?to the forefront, offering direct access to content with a single touch.

Note Pro, Tab Pro 12.2 and Tab Pro 10.1 feature a virtual keyboard that mimics the size and appearance of a physical keyboard, leveraging haptic feedback and hotkeys to offer users a more accurate typing experience. It includes directional keys and copy/paste functionality built right into the keyboard.

The Note Pro also includes Samsung's S Pen as well as features such as handwriting-to-text, Air Command, and Pen Window.

Both the Note Pro and Tab Pro come equipped with applications. Remote PC allows access and control of a home or office computer directly through a Pro tablet, while a downloadable and touch optimized version of Hancom Office gives users the ability to create, edit and save documents, spreadsheets and presentations with the same functionality you would find on a PC. Samsung e-Meeting provides collaboration capabilities by giving users the ability to share content during a meeting without having to access a central server or network.

Samsung continues to partner with entertainment, productivity and news sources to provide over $800 in bundled content for the Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro tablets through Galaxy Perks. With Galaxy Perks, consumers have access to news, social media, and cloud storage applications including: $25 Google Play credit, three-month trial Hulu Plus membership, one-year Bloomberg Businessweek+ subscription, six months of Cisco WebEx Premium 8 package, and 50 GB of Dropbox space for two years.
