It has been called the most important smartphone of the year by several tech journalists, and Samsung made sure to press home the point by declaring that they have sold more than 200 million galaxy device already. So, evidently, the largest mobile seller has announced it’s flagship of the year, and this is going to be the device which will be measuring scale against several other devices.
The Galaxy S V in terms of design language is very similar to the Galaxy S IV. From the front infact, there is no way to make out any different. the device comes with USB 3.0 and the display slightly larger at 5.1 inch. It is still a 1080 P Super AMOLED full HD screen. At the back of the phone, there is an all new dimpled plastic back, very similar to the older Nexus 7. There is also a 16 MP rear camera which Samsung has called to be the fastest AF camera in the world. There is also a heartbeat sensor on the back right next to an LED flash on the device. Internally there is a 2.5 Quad Core SoC with 2 GB RAM. The fingerprint sensor on board needs you to swipe your finger across it to unlock the device.
The software on the phone is again very similar to the S IV. There is KitKat on board and some nifty little features such as a personalized fitness coach. The icons in the notification pull down have been changed to a little more rounded ones, while rest of the things are very much how they were on the S IV. The device is expected to start selling in about 150 countries starting April 11th. There was no word on the pricing, and the Samsung Galaxy S V will be available in Black, White, Gold and Blue colors in 16 GB and 32 GB variants.
