Samsung launches Galaxy S5 at MWC 2014

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.

Please do not buy this phone. It occupies 8 GB for android o/s in the internal memory. Which means you will only get 7.9 GB or 8 GB of internal space in a 16 GB S5 model.

8 GB is more than sufficient as internal memory. Anyhow you can extend your memory via SD card.

From a falgship point of view 8GB internal memory is too low.When a user buys a 16GB model atleast 10GB+ should be user available.And the 8GB occupied out of 16GB is filled with Samsung’s bloatware which half of the users don’t demand for and Samsung does not even allow you to you remove it.8GB of internal memory on the S5 is like when someone buys 10KG of rice and finds 5KG of stones in it.The stones cannot be removed as well.

Well said. A user in Samsung I9300 area reported that his HTC phone running with android 4.4 is facing problems accessing his memory card. At last I found that most of the android 4.4 and later phone users are facing the same. Search google with the string ‘microsd card access problem in android 4.4’.

Telecomtalk, please carry an article on this and alert the users. Please do not be one sided (only trying to promote new products).

Its mostly not HTC’s fault bro.Android 4.4 has a feature as of which apps can now only write on a certain part of the memory card designated to them.I probably guess its because of this that users are facing problems with their memory cards on Android 4.4.Google is slowly but surely taking more control over android but still you will have android morons who will keep jumping around shouting the funda of android being open.

Then whats wrong in telecomtalk publishing article about this shameless monopoly?. Even Nokia is going to block access to play store (not via website browsing) by changing the coding so that users are redirected to nokia store for help and not to playstore. Why these 2 shameless activities are going on?. Linux is alos open source, no one restricted anything in it. It is only the mobile platform in which the companies are implementing monopoly in a shameless manner. Knowing all this, FIREFOX mobile o/s and tizen o/s must put an end to this. Telecomtalk, please carry an article on… Read more »

@sudhakar Yeah Google is trying to take more control over android,as far as rumors go Google recently met Samsung and said them to reduce or remove some of their apps that are similar to the Google apps and services since its affecting Google’s revenue.The new Samsung Galaxy S5 does not have media hub so users cannot buy books,videos,movies etc from Samsung but have to use Google’s official Play Store.The SD card is simply an example of Google trying to take more control over android.The real reason why I hate this SD card rule from Google,is because you would have Google… Read more »
