As I mentioned in the last article about the Galaxy S5, there are a heap of features that make it a stand out model for 2014.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 has taken design cues from it’s bigger Note 3 brother and also presents a more hard-cornered profile with a removable, dimpled back panel that is reminiscent of the first Nexus 7. It’s still very much a recognisable member of the Galaxy family. Interestingly, even though the back panel is removable the Galaxy S5 is able to dunked in water.
Samsung Galaxy S5 has a 5.1 inch display with Super AMOLED, and offers a 16 megapixel camera and can record in 4K. The S5 has very fast auto focus down to 0.3 seconds.
Under the hood the Galaxy S5 has a 2.5GHz quad core chip with 2GB of RAM, and also runs the latest Kitkat Android platform with the Touchwiz overlay.
The Galaxy S5 has a fingerprint scanner using the home button to slide your chosen digit down, which could be used to unlock the phone, and even use as a payment authentication for transaction platforms like Paypal. The Galaxy S5 also has a heart rate sensor to use in conjunction with it’s new wearable range and its own S Health app, among others.
Here’s the sneak preview from the launch night:
