Preview : Samsung Galaxy S5

The Galaxy S5 is official and its merely a small step forward. The screen grew a little bit to 5.1″ of S-Amoled type with a resolution of 1080p. The camera at the back is a 16 megapixel snapper with UHD video capture.
Samsung does maintain the clockspeed advantage with a rare Snapdragon
801 chipset clocked at 2.5 Ghz and while the fingerprint scanner was no surprise, the heart rate
monitor certainly is. Note that the Home button now contains a fingerprint scanner, which will be used for securing the phone but apps can also use it to provide secure
verification for their services. You need to swipe your finger over the scanner
(not just hold it).
The back of the device is a new iteration of Samsung’s leather-like plastic,
with what looks like perforated holes. It only looks like it though, the Galaxy
S5 is IP67 certified – we don’t expect to see a Galaxy S5 Active.
The back cover is removable as usual. Below it is a 2,800mAh battery
(also removable) and a microSD card slot to supplement the 16/32GB
built-in storage.
Like we said, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is in part what we expected and a
bit of a surprise. What is it though that sets it apart from the Galaxy S4
Advance with the leather back?
