The Galaxy S5 smartphone arrives with a design that will remind you of the Galaxy S4.
Samsung Galaxy S5 (16 GB) will be available from April 11 in India at a price ranging between Rs 51,000 to Rs 53,000.
Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a 5.1 inch touchscreen with full HD (1920x1080 pixels) resolution. This Super AMOLED display has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
The handset has 16 GB internal storage and one can even use a micro SD card of up to 128 GB capacity in its expandable storage slot.
Samsung Galaxy S5 has powerful hardware including 2.5 Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad core processor and 2 GB RAM.
It is based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat version.
It has a 16 megapixel rear camera with claimed autofocus speed of 0.3 seconds and an advanced High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode. Besides, it can shoot 4K videos. There is a 2 megapixel front camera in Galaxy S5 as well.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 also comes with fingerprint sensor. According to Samsung, it can recognise three fingerprints and it takes eight swipes to register the same instead of holding your finger on a certain place.
It will use a nano SIM and other connectivity features include fifth generation 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, infrared port, micro USB 3.0, USB on the go, DLNA, and WiFi Direct.
It has a 2800 mAh removable battery.
In terms of design there is no eye popping changes in Samsung Galaxy S5 as compared to S4. It looks quite similar to its predecessor and has a plastic body. It has a removable back panel that has a texture of little pores that gives decent grip.
It will be made available in four colours - blue, gold, white and black.
Like other Samsung devices, the Galaxy S5 has its share of few "extra" features. Prominent among those is the Kids Mode that allows one to lock away features that you do not want your kid to see. It has Ultra Power Saving Mode which when activated shuts down all features except calls and texts.
