Samsung today announced the fifth generation of its Galaxy S series. The Galaxy S5 features a 16 megapixel camera and offers the world’s fastest autofocus speed up to 0.3 seconds. Also, the new Selective Focus feature allows users to focus on a specific area of an object while simultaneously blurring out the background. With this capability, consumers no longer need a special lens kit to create a shallow depth of field. For consumers seeking a faster connection, the Galaxy S5 now features Download Booster – an innovative Wi-Fi technology for boosting data speed by bonding Wi-Fi and LTE simultaneously. With the enhanced S Health 3.0, the Galaxy S5 offers a pedometer, diet and exercise records, and built-in heart rate monitor.
The Galaxy S5 features a perforated pattern on the back cover creating a modern look. Its sleek, contoured shape comes in a variety of vivid colors, including charcoal black, shimmery white, electric blue and copper gold. Additionally, the Galaxy S5 is dust- and water-resistant. It also offers a Finger Scanner, providing a screen locking feature and safe mobile payment experience. The Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available beginning in April.
