Samsung Mobile finally unwrapped the Galaxy S5 with all the charm and magic it bestows at MWC 2014.
With all the rumors on the next flagship, Samsung Galaxy S5 roaming around put to end, the next thing to do is to stand in awe. But wait, the S5 primarily is designed to get back to the basics. So again, basically it assumes the features that their users are most likely to use, and not to overwhelm them with things they may not be ready to have or too advance for the whole tech shebang to handle.
That‘s where the octa core processor, the 4K display, and the iris scanner got bumped off the scene, if it ever got on the sketch board for the 5th generation of Galaxy S. However, looking closely on what they’ve done instead, the S5 still stands out as a flagship. Now it learns to focus on what it can offer best like the camera, connectivity, fitness tools, and over-all device security and protection.
Well for one, they got the 16MP cam with at most 0.3 seconds auto focusing speed, plus the advanced High Dynamic Range (HDR) for better color reproduction, and the Selective Focus for having the ability to blur other things behind a focal subject. Though, they only got 2MP front-facing. For whatever you capture, the 5.1-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) Super AMOLED display will give you the best view you’ll love to look at.
The Galaxy S5 is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, running ultimately at Android 4.4.2 KitKat, supported with 2GB of RAM, and paired with either 16GB or 32GB memory configuration with up to 128GB expandability via microSD. LTE Cat4 with 150Mbps download speed, and 50Mbps upload is on board, plus Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 BLE, NFC, IR remote, and USB 3.0 on added wireless and cabled connectivity.
Besides the accelerometer, gyro, and proximity sensors that comes built-in with almost every smartphone, Samsung added the Gesture(IR), Finger Scanner found under the home button, and the Heart rate sensor. These new hardware are used for both security, having a Private Mode or Kids Mode turned on with a scanned finger, and fitness tools with its S Health 3.0 you’ll find with the S5 and paired up with Gear 2 or Gear Fit at hand.
Samsung Galaxy S5’s aesthetics has the Galaxy Note 3 to thank for with its leather like back panel colored in charcoal black, electric blue, shimmery white, and in copper gold. It’ll start its global roll out beginning April 2014, though pricing haven’t been announced yet.
