By February 25th, 2014 AT 1:49 PM

Samsung has finally taken the wraps off the latest flagship, the Galaxy S5 which comes across as an evolutionary upgrade rather than a revolutionary upgrade. It brings fingerprint scanner goodness and brings IP67 certification as the chief upgrades. Let us have a look at its specifications:


  • 5.1 inch Super AMOLED display with a full HD resolution
  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat with TouchWiz UI on top
  • 2.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 processor
  • 16MP rear camera with BSI and LED flash, 2.1MP front camera
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB and 32GB of internal storage capacity which can be expanded by another 64GB
  • Download Booster which uses Wi-Fi and Network services simultaneously for faster downloads
  • IP67 certification which makes it water and dust resistant
  • Heart rate  sensor coupled with S Health 3.0
  • Infrared LED to make it compatible with smart TV remote
  • 4G LTE/3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.0,GPS, USB 3.0 and NFC
  • 2800 mAhbattery unit
  •  Charcoal Black, Shimmery White, Electric Blue and Copper Gold

The smartphone features a leather cum plastic back with perforated holes which make the grip of the smartphone slightly better. Samsung will launch the smartphone in April globally with a price tag and we can expect to get the same then. Expect it to be priced around the Rs 45,000 mark.
