After Samsung gave us a appetizer with its revision of its Samsung
Galaxy Gear line with various new smartwatches, they also showcased today its latest flagship the Samsung Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S5 raises the bar of the size in display coming in at 5.1″ with a SUPER AMOLED display. The camera’s rear is at 16MP with the front being 2MP. One of my favorite features on the S5 with the camera would be the selective focus where you can add those blurs where you want them or need them.
Another features is one such as “Download Booster” which utilizes your WIFI and 4G LTE data services and combines to provide you with the fastest speed possible for downloading content. If this can be pulled off it would definitely be incredible to be behold for us data lovers. Also other additions is the S5 will be IP67 graded for Dust/Water Resistance and a Ultra Power Saving Mode which I think would be needed for specific times. If you feel safety is a problem Finger Scanner is built-in and is supposed to be great for mobile payments.
Interesting about the Galaxy S5 is that will come in four different colors which are White, Gold, Blue, and Black.
