The consumer electronics market is moving ahead at breakneck speed. In this, the mobile phone industry seems to be the one churning out new devices literary by the day. In the mobile industry, two manufacturers stand out as the bastions of power – Samsung and Apple. With the latest iPhone garnering some praise and offering something new to the consumers, it was only a matter of time before Samsung came out with its flagship device. Enter the Galaxy S5.
With regards to the specifications, the Galaxy S5 has pretty much everything you’d ever want or need in a mobile phone. The display is Full HD and the dimensions are just about the perfect size for a mobile - 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm. We expect the phone to sit well in the average person’s palm.
Combining an Adreno 330 GPU with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (The Indian market is expected to see the S5 sport a Exynos processor) and a Quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400 CPU, the phone sits at the apex of the smartphone market. We expect this to ensure glitch-free performance and make multi-tasking a breeze.
With every new Galaxy model, especially the high-end ones, we mobile geeks are curious to see if there are any new, interesting features. Well, Samsung hasn’t disappointed. Based on what we know of the phone, it has some really cool new features. It’s got a fingerprint sensor that you can not only unlock your phone with, but also make online payments as its PayPal certified. What good would a brand new phone be if it couldn’t survive the elements, right? Well, this bad boy is IP67 certified which means dust and water can’t harm the phone. And you can even take it swimming – it’s water resistant up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
We’re also curious to try the 16MP camera. It’s got many new features like 1/2.6'' sensor size, 1.12 µm pixel size, Dual Shot, Simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization and HDR.
What We Expect:
Let’s get one thing straight – Samsung has set some insanely high standards. Every year, with the release of a new flagship galaxy model, the Korean manufacturer takes things up a notch. With the S5, that’s exactly what they’ve done. The S4 was a brilliant device; the S5 its evolution. There isn’t a sea change or something drastically different, that we expect, it’s just that Samsung has moved with the times and made a phone that perfectly captures the Korean Phone Maker’s position in the market.
We can’t wait for this phone – simple as that. It’s got so many awesome features that we can’t wait to try it out. This is going to a big hit and we’ll have a full review soon. Watch this space.
The S5 is the latest flagship model and it’s an eagerly awaited one. The S5 is the latest addition to the Galaxy stable and of course it has some great technical features. We like what we’ve seen so far and will be back with a full detailed review when we have our hands on the phone.
