Samsung, according to Korean media (via GforGames) report, is being said to face some problems with the centring of the Galaxy S5’s 16-megapixel ISOCELL camera sensor. It is also reportedly facing problems with the stability of the lens module coating process. Before this, reports suggested the Korean tech giant was facing difficulties in moulding the 6-element optics. The moulding issue is now said to have been solved.

It has been also noted that recently a PCB factory that is a supplier to Samsung had caught fire, damaging some of the production materials and causing a minor halt in the production.

Due to these few hits during the production process, it has been assumed that Samsung might finally make 4-5 million Samsung Galaxy S5 units as compared to 5-7 million units which was anticipated earlier. An additional report indicates the Samsung Galaxy S5 might arrive before its global launch, 11 April 2014, at least in Korea.

Earlier in March, reports about a delay in the Galaxy S5 production were doing the rounds – attributed to supply problems for the fingerprint sensor. The company had at the time refuted the reports.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom, one of rumoured the variants of Galaxy S5 handset, was recently spotted in a leak that provided some purported specifications of the handset.

The camera is of course, according to the leaked information, the main feature of the new handset. The Galaxy S5 Zoom is said to have a 20-megapixel sensor, 10x optical zoom, image stabilisation and also a Xenon flash. Aside from these imaging features, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom is also expected to include a physical camera shutter button and a throttle to control the zoom, both of which should make it easier to take pictures.

The screen of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom is rumoured to be a 4.8-inch display covering almost the entire front of the device. The handset is said to run on Android 4.4 KitKat OS, and is to feature a 1.6GHz quad-core processor clubbed with 2GB of RAM.
