Samsung may be a little disappointed with the sales of the Galaxy S4, causing it to push forward the launch for its next mega phone, the Samsung Galaxy S5.  We’ve already speculated that the Galaxy S5 is likely to be the first phone from Samsung to feature a 64-bit processor, much like the one found in the iPhone 5s.  Back in July we heard that the Samsung Galaxy S4 had shifted a whopping 20 million units, which may sound like a lot, but it may have missed internal targets.

CES is set to take place in January, which would be a fitting place for Samsung to launch the Galaxy S5, overshadowing any other announcements that are set to take place at the technology mecca.

Not much is known about the Galaxy S5, but we have heard inklings that it is set to come with a 16MP snapper, feature a metal casing and have optical image stabilisation.
