Meet the Samsung Galaxy S5, full spec and description

At the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, on Monday, Korean Mobile phone makers, Samsung, unveiled its latest flagship Android smartphone, the Galaxy S5.

Samsung mobile honcho J.K. Shin opened the presentation by saying his company asked customers what they most wanted in a phone.

The answers boiled down to a desire for simplicity, nice design, fitness features, long battery life and a good camera.
Here’s a list of most of the specs:

The phone sports a 5.1-inch OLED display – ever so slightly larger than the S4′s 5-inch display; the screen’s resolution remains unchanged at 1080p. Samsung has infused a couple of neat environment-specific features, such as the ability for the display to adjust its levels relative to your surrounding lighting conditions (indoors or outdoors, for example) and an extra low dimming mode for use in dark rooms or if you don’t want people looking at your screen from over your shoulder.

Samsung promises up to 10 hours of web surfing over an LTE cellular connection, or up to 12 hours of video playback. There’s a new “ultra power saving” mode that will shut down all but the most essential features and turn the screen to black and white, so when you’re just about out of juice, you’ll be able to squeak out enough usage to communicate in an emergency.

Samsung says you’ll get up to 24 hours of usage with 10% of your battery left.

The rear-facing camera gets a slight bump, jumping to 16 megapixels (up from 13 in last year’s model).

Autofocus speed has been increased, and the actual image sensor is larger than the S4′s; it’s been paired with an image processing chip as well, and it’s capable of shooting 4K video.

There’s also a “selective focus” feature that lets you finesse which areas of a photo receive more focus and which are blurred more for a DSLR-like look.

Finally, there’s a real-time high dynamic range (HDR) mode that’ll let you preview what an HDR-enhanced photo would look like next to a non-HDR version of the same photo.

“Aluminum? Finally aluminum?!” Sorry. No aluminum here this time around. The case is still polycarbonate – a fancy word for plastic.

There’s a perforated back, though, which looks somewhat similar to the Galaxy Note 3. Color options include black, blue, white and gold.
