Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy S5 at Mobile World Congress 2014 and it will be available globally from 11th April. If you’re looking for a phone that reinvents the smartphone again, in the same way the Samsung Galaxy S2, HTC Desire or iPhone 4 managed, you’re going to be rather disappointed with what’s on offer from South Korea.
With a 5.1″ 1080p screen, 16 MP camera and 2 GB of RAM, the Galaxy S5 might not be the utmost specs beast that the Android world has to offer, but it comes with plenty of new features, both in comparison with its predecessor, the S4, and when measured up to the other flagships. The heart beat sensor, for instance, is unique for the Galaxy S5, while something like the Finger Scanner can also be observed on the iPhone 5s, but in a rather different implementation.
Samsung also introduced two new launch colors, including Copper Gold, and a brand new perforated design for the rear cover. The addition of Snapdragon 801 chipset brings on LTE-A download speeds, and 4K video recording, to an already superb handset. Galaxy S5 comes with Android 4.4 KitKat and the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. There’s no word from Samsung officials yet on whether or not a stock Android Google Play or Nexus edition will be be available.
