Contrary to the rumors, the newly announced device is reminiscing the old feel of the previous model S4 as the company states “designed for what matters most to consumers. The new Galaxy S5 offers consumers a refined experience with innovation of essential features for day-to-day use. ”, in other words: no drastic change.

The most notable features include a finger scanner providing a secure, biometric screen locking mechanism, located on the home button; an optical heart rate reader integrated to the camera LED Flash; An ultra power saving mode turns the display to black and white, and shuts down all unnecessary features to minimize the battery consumption. Galaxy S5 waterproof and dust-proof in compliance with standard specification IP67, meaning it can submerge up to 30 minutes at about 1 meter deep.

The camera offers superior camera functionality, featuring a 16 megapixel camera with an enhanced menu and user interface that allow consumers to effortlessly take, edit and share photos. A faster auto-focus in less than 0.3 seconds; an advanced High Dynamic Range (HDR) allowing production of better intensity contrast. A new selective focus feature allows users to focus on a specific area of an object while simultaneously blurring out the background. With this capability, consumers no longer need a special lens kit to create a shallow depth of field (DOF) effect.

The S5 will be available in April worldwide
