It does not seem that long ago when the first Galaxy smartphone from Samsung was launched and now we are thinking about the fifth generation of the phone. However, it seems that there are plenty of fans out there ready to pre order the £600 device, over a 100,000 in fact! There has been a lot of excitement around the launch of this new phone and it is nothing to do with charcoal Black, shimmery White, electric Blue and copper Gold colour choices or the 16 megapixel camera. This is because it is the complete package that Samsung are offering with the Galaxy S5.
Let’s take a closer look at what all the fuss is about; it comes with a 5.1 inch screen that offers a FHD super AMOLED display with a 1920 x 1080 of pixel resolutions. It is going to be running on the Android 4.4.2 (Kitkat) operating system and it is powered by a 2.5 GHz quad core application processor. There is 2 GB of RAM, an internal memory choice of either 16 GB or 32 GB and there is the trusty microSD slot with up to 128 GB of memory.
Smartphone must have a good camera, the S5 has two, the main one is 16 MP and the forward facing camera is 2.0 MP. There is plenty of connectivity features with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac HT80 Wi-Fi, MIMO (2×2), Bluetooth 4.0 BLE / ANT+, USB 3.0, NFC and IR Remote. So finally, what about the casing, it measures up at 142.0 mm (L) x 72.5 mm (W) x 8.1 mm (T) and weighs in at 145 grams with the built in 2800mAh battery that offers a standby time 390 hrs and a talk time 21 hrs.
Currently this phone is available for pre order, so an unlocked Galaxy S5 is going to cost you around £600 to buy.
