The company’s 5th generation Galaxy S redefines how technology innovation enhances our lives
“With the Galaxy S5, Samsung is going back to basics to focus on delivering the capabilities that matter most to our consumers,” said JK Shin, President and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung. “Consumers are looking for mobile tools that inspire and support them as they improve their everyday lives. The Galaxy S5 represents an iconic design with essential and useful features to focus on delivering the ultimate smartphone on the market today through people inspired innovation.”
The Galaxy S5 combines an advanced camera, the fast network connectivity, dedicated fitness tools and enhanced device protection features as consumers stay fit and connected in style.
Capturing and saving precious memories is one of the most important smartphone features today. The new Galaxy S5 offers superior camera functionality, featuring a 16 megapixel camera with an enhanced menu and user interface that allow consumers to effortlessly take, edit and share photos.
The Galaxy S5 offers the world’s fastest autofocus speed up to 0.3 seconds and the advanced High Dynamic Range (HDR), reproduce natural light and color with striking intensity at any circumstances. Also 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 (DOF) effect.
Tap into the fastest connections
The Galaxy S5 offers the most advanced LTE experience and Wi-Fi performance available today, ensuring blazing fast data speeds for unrivaled media consumption and productivity.
The Galaxy S5 supports the fifth generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac and 2X2 MIMO, and supporting the large number of LTE frequency with LTE Category 4 standard. For consumers seeking an even 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. No matter where a consumer is, the Galaxy S5 will help ensure they have the fastest available connection.
Be more fit and active
With the enhanced S Health 3.0, the new Galaxy S5 offers more tools to help people stay fit and well. It
provides a comprehensive personal fitness tracker to help users monitor and manage their behavior,
along with additional tools including a pedometer, diet and exercise records, and a new, built-in heart
rate monitor. Galaxy S5 users can further customize their experience with an enriched third party app
ecosystem and the ability to pair with next generation Gear products for real-time fitness coaching.
Express modern, glam look
The Galaxy S5 blends iconic Samsung design with modern trends to appeal to a range of consumer
tastes and interests. The Galaxy S5 features a perforated pattern on the back cover creating a modern
glam look. Its new sleek, contoured shape comes in an array of vivid colors, including charcoal Black,
shimmery White, electric Blue and copper Gold, to complement the style of the individual consumer.
Essential device protection
The Galaxy S5 is IP67 dust and water resistant. It also offers a Finger Scanner, providing a secure,
biometric screen locking feature and a seamless and safe mobile payment experience to consumers. The
Ultra Power Saving Mode turns the display to black and white, and shuts down all unnecessary features
to minimize the battery consumption.
The device will be available globally through Samsung’s retail channels, e-commerce and carriers on April.

I'm not. The only reason this isn't very impressive is because phones are reaching the same maturity the pc and laptop market saw years ago.
28. raunak (Posts: 505; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
But yes, if they didn't have anything new, they should have at least tried a new design, if still plastic.
37. Diego! (Posts: 508; Member since: 15 Jun 2009)
I was not looking forward to a 2K display but a new design language. Because they promised to do so. But they didn't, that's why I'm dissapointed :(
46. LiyanaBG (Posts: 366; Member since: 07 Nov 2013)
any phone would kill this thing samsung screwed up because of there stupid tizen
80. rueleonheart (Posts: 20; Member since: 24 Feb 2014)
As far as I have heard, they only promised the "feel" of the casing will be different. And that's what we can see here. It will feel like leather.
42. SleepingOz (unregistered)
Yeah but it should at least have come with 3GB RAM.
I feel like my Note 3 is better than this. Going Oppo this year!
73. dratomic (Posts: 475; Member since: 09 Oct 2013)
ofcourse note 3 is better. it will only be dethroned by note 4. and btw galaxy J already wipes the floor with this one.
64. jcdz89 (Posts: 78; Member since: 01 Mar 2013)
Wtf... funeral in phonearena. Anyway my deepest sympathy
84. Glim12808 (Posts: 393; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)
Yes, nothing extraordinary but the phone overall is quite good. Except the back - yuck I hate that pockmark look! If that's the "glam" look, then give me unglam any day! Brrrrr ugh hate it!
23. Reverence (Posts: 224; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
this is the worst phone of MWC even the nokia XL lived up to the hype
50. akki20892 (Posts: 3624; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
Hell Yea. Nokia XL is hotter. Design language still same they lied, and 2gb ram? What about 2k? This is not best smartphone of the year.
26. qerimm (Posts: 4; Member since: 24 Feb 2014)
not worth of talking.finish the discussion.shame samsung
39. LiyanaBG (Posts: 366; Member since: 07 Nov 2013)
they busy with tizen. tizen is going to kill Samsung soon because they not giving attention to there android phones. this year is HTC and Sony and LG year
56. akki20892 (Posts: 3624; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
Lol what a disappointed sammy. You made us So Happy. You guys are going backward in design language.
im waiting for Nokia's Next flagship. And I know will be hot and will rocks.
60. Ashoaib (Posts: 2387; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)
Yesterday's Huawie X1 tablet looks better then this despite of a huge bulk...
61. vaibhavaggarwal (Posts: 44; Member since: 05 Jul 2013)
I was more excited about the cheap phones running firefox OS than i am about this garbage.
77. CX3NT3_713 (Posts: 2004; Member since: 18 Apr 2011)
I agree with you..,, Samsung has lost its touch,. Since the S3...I'll be spending my money on Sony products...
2. sadiqahmed (Posts: 26; Member since: 11 Oct 2013)
SWEEEEEEET!!!! Lets see what Lg has to offer to compete with this year!
43. LiyanaBG (Posts: 366; Member since: 07 Nov 2013)
and people say LG copy samsung? i now find LG innovative company because everything they do it better than samsung expect updates
66. sarge77 (Posts: 202; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
doesnt matter the gs5 wasnt going to be better than the note 3.
6. emadshiny (Posts: 1142; Member since: 05 Dec 2012)
And here is what every Sammy lover waited for!
7. alan_1230 (Posts: 77; Member since: 22 Apr 2012)
garbage coming from a s2 s3 s4 and note 3 !!!!
8. zig8100 (Posts: 140; Member since: 13 Dec 2012)
WTF its not even annonced yet. Seems like the Xperia Z2 will be a better offering.
35. Feanor (Posts: 317; Member since: 20 Jun 2012)
...proving me right that there is no magical formula. Good cameras and waterproofing require some space. I think the Samsung S5 presentation will render the bezel talk moot.... it was about time.
Other than that, the Z2 seems soooo much better.
13. rihel_95 (Posts: 229; Member since: 21 Mar 2012)
Not even 3GB ram, wtf Samsung. U r becoming SameSung :(
14. Malki (Posts: 65; Member since: 20 Feb 2013)
Nice one Samsung, hope the second version will be a metallic or faux leather one :)
15. imran86 (Posts: 43; Member since: 14 Sep 2012)
13:06 the music is super upbeat now, but there's still no one on stage! Samsung is now 5 minutes late
13:03 False alarm, we're still listening to music, but it's about to start any moment now.
16. mokhtar (Posts: 265; Member since: 06 Jan 2014)
well , ugly and nothing new , who cares about finger sensor wtf
Z2 KING OF PHONES 2014 UNTIL NOW
17. lallolu (Posts: 245; Member since: 18 Sep 2012)
LG G2 with a microsd card is better than this.
19. Hyperreal (Posts: 135; Member since: 08 Oct 2013)
So now lets wait for the m8. Nothing interesting here.
44. LiyanaBG (Posts: 366; Member since: 07 Nov 2013)
it sure will kill this any phone would kill this thing samsung screwed up because of there stupid tizen
21. jaxson983 (Posts: 43; Member since: 11 Aug 2013)
I said that the finger print scanner on the iphone was stupid and pointless....so in all fairness to craapple...The finger print scanner on s5 is stupid and pointless.

27. sudbury78 (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Jul 2012)
No Way. IF this is really the phone they are Complete fools. WHY make a phone with lower ppi? 2 gigs of ram??? Oy.
29. newbey123 (Posts: 450; Member since: 19 Mar 2012)
HTC One will be the phone for this year! Same specs, better design and UI! Time to pick up the ball and run it in HTC.
31. Einstein333 (Posts: 40; Member since: 22 May 2012)
oh my god, it's really worse in every respect than what had been rumored so far!! Still the same boring S3 design, still plastic, no QHD display, only 2 instead of 3GB of RAM, only 2800 instead of 3200+ battery, all the hype has been about nothing! Good for HTC and others...
32. b0wzer (Posts: 41; Member since: 07 Feb 2014)
Terrible. I was really hoping to make this my first android phone, but it's so gimicky. Not to mention ugly too.
33. joaolx (Posts: 362; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
Be honest, you all say you are disappointed by the S5 but a few months from now you will say it is one of the best smarphone, like every year. I for one don't think it's bad, but it's not amazing at all and a two months from now it will be surpassed by another smartphone, like every year.
34. cornerofthemoon (Posts: 518; Member since: 20 Apr 2010)
Design Wise, It's about what we all expected...meh
38. N.Reynolds (Posts: 257; Member since: 15 Feb 2011)
Wow, really disappointed in this. Glad I have my Note 3 however I hope the next Note won't be similar to the S5 in any way. I just made the jump to Samsung because I really liked the Note 3 minus Touchwiz and now it looks like I'll be jumping away from them for my next phone.....smh Samsung...smh
