The latest round of rumors has the presumed successor to Samsung’s Galaxy S4, a more powerful Galaxy S5, sporting unicorn-esque specs, perhaps some new flexible materials, and craziest of all: Launching as little as ten months after the Galaxy S4 was introduced.

A Korean site reports that “industry sources” say production of the Galaxy S5 could begin in January with Samsung’s next flagship phone shipping with Android KitKat and alongside a revamped Galaxy Gear 2 watch as early as February or March. That would be a few months ahead of many early-adopting Galaxy S4 owners’ one-year anniversaries with their devices.
