samsung galaxy s5Here it is what Samsung Galaxy fans have waited for. No more rumors but the real phone and some of its new features. It looks like Samsung gave this one some real thought as this phone sports a quad-core Snapdragon 2.5 GHz processor as well as health-monitoring software. (Take that, Apple.) The styling of the Galaxy S5 has not changed much except for the plastic back, which Galaxy lovers will most likely accept without a problem. The device now claims to be waterproof and the camera improved. Check out Mashable’s review.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Scans Fingers, Doesn’t Fear Water

BARCELONA, Spain — At this year’s Mobile World Congress, Samsung went all out. The company launched three wearable devices — Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit — and its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5.

The Galaxy S5, as Samsung hinted in its invitations, focuses on everyday fitness. But one rumor that didn’t materialize was the 4K screen. Instead, the S5 has a 5.1-inch, full HD Super AMOLED screen, but the phone is still a monster when it comes to hardware. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon, quad-core, 2.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB of storage, a 16-megapixel camera on the back, a 2.1-megapixel one on the front and a 2,800mAh battery.

Samsung places great emphasis on the device’s camera, which has an extremely fast auto-focus (up to 0.3 seconds) and a feature called real-time HDR, showing you an HDR effect on your photos and videos live in the preview as you take a shot. The camera also has selective focus, letting you choose the best focus after taking a shot; a feature called “shot and more” lets you choose the best photo from several taken in rapid succession.

The device runs Android 4.4 and comes with support for LTE and the super-fast Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard. Read more: Samsung Galaxy S5 Scans Fingers, Doesn’t Fear Water
