Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5
Ladies and gentlemen, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has officially arrived, and while it might not have been able to meet the sky-high expectations, it’s treated us to a ton of new features.
The new design and new features
Samsung introduces a brand new design paradigm with the S5 – one that still uses plastic as the basis material, but flaunts a perforated rear pattern, that is quite different than the “stitched leather” looks of the Note 3. Besides the Charcoal Black and Shimmery White, the Galaxy S5 will arrive with two extra colors at launch – Electric Blue, and the aforementioned Copper Gold that you can see in the pictures.The Galaxy S5 uses a 5.1″ 1080×1920-pixel Super AMOLED display and while the resolution has not changed from the S4, Samsung has improved the display making it go brighter at peak brightness (great for outdoor use) and dimmer at the lowest levels (great for night-time viewing).The newly-coined quad-core Snapdragon 801 (Qualcomm’s MSM8974-AC chipset), clocked at 2.5 GHz, is what’s powering the Galaxy S5. The new chipset supports fast 150 Mbps LTE-Advanced download speeds, and Samsung claims that the S5 will support up to 8 LTE Cat4 bands on all global carriers. There is also an innovative feature in the handset, called Download Booster, which speeds up downloads by combining the Wi-Fi/ac and LTE-Advanced connectivity.
