Samsung wowed audiences in Barcelona and around the world Monday with the unveiling of its next-generation flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5.
The South Korean tech giant confirmed at Mobile World Congress that the refreshed state-of-the-art handset will, as previously rumored, challenge the security superiority of Apple’s iPhone 5s by delivering a fingerprint sensor of its own.
The company says its water-resistant 5th generation Galaxy S redefines how technology innovation enhances our lives.
“With the Galaxy S5, Samsung is going back to basics to focus on delivering the capabilities that matter most to our consumers,” said JK Shin, President and Head of IT and Mobile Communications Division at Samsung. “Consumers are looking for mobile tools that inspire and support them as they improve their everyday lives. The Galaxy S5 represents an iconic design with essential and useful features to focus on delivering the ultimate smartphone on the market today through people inspired innovation.”
Based on details revealed in Barcelona, the forthcoming Galaxy S5 combines an advanced camera, the fast network connectivity, dedicated fitness tools and enhanced device protection features as consumers stay fit and connected in style.
Pricing hasn’t yet been announced, but the Galaxy S5 will be available worldwide beginning April 11th.
When it ships, you can expect to enjoy a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display (packing a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels) a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, a 16MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM, 2,800 mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat.
