Samsung Galaxy S5: all the official images

Samsung Galaxy S5: all the official images
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is here and so is a huge gallery of gorgeous high-resolution images of Samsung's new big thing for you to ogle at. Truth is most of us got an early look at the Galaxy S5 from pictures leaked earlier today, and they were so low-res that they left a kind of a wrong impression about the S5. Especially, the dimpled "perforated" back looked pretty horrible on those leaked images, while in reality it has a soft touch feel, much like the one on the Note 3, and it actually looks good on the images below.

Moreover, you'll get to see Samsung's official team great photography skills, and just enjoy seeing the S5 from every angle possible. Little has changed in appearance since the Galaxy S4 (apart from that new back), and as a matter of fact - from the Galaxy S III, but functionally the Galaxy S lineup is evolving. The Galaxy S5 is the first one to feature protection from the elements and that's a nice feature to have. On the back, you can see there is a heart rate monitor right below the camera (and next to the LED flash), and you should also know that the Galaxy S5 comes with a fingerprint reader inside the home key (you swipe on it) and you can use it for mobile payments.

All the rest is specs and history, as they say, and we'd add images to that - take a look right below.

Wait bro, something everyone seems to forget, that was EPISODE 1. I still don't know what does this supposed to mean but there might be something else coming.

Yeah .. I guess, EPISODE 2 will refer to a premium line and may actually come with a New Design, QHD Display, 3GB RAM .. Still keeping my hopes for it ..

I like the way it looks, Smurf. This phone may not be a powerhouse over the Note 3, but it's a definite improvement over the S4. The problem here is expectations. Everyone had these ridiculous expectations of what this phone should be. The fact is that on paper it's still a great phone. If I didn't already have a Note 3, I'd be all over it too, but I'm definitely not mad at you for wanting to pick it up. I bet it will be the sh*t.

Oh yeah the phone will sell to some Sammy fanboys and girls or people that had the s3 and were looking for an bigger upgrade. I bet the sales of this phone will be a bigger disappointment than than the s4. What I don't understand is where is all the premium materials they planned to use????

12. PapaSmurf

Posts: 10457; Member since: May 14, 2012

S4 sold well over 45 million - more than the S3 did...

7. techaman unregistered

smurf you may as well get the s4 its the same thing just cheaper

S600 vs S801 13MP vs 16MP 802.11n vs 802.11 MIMO AC IP67 Fingerprint scanner Lighter UI Bigger battery Yeah, they're definitely the same phone.

The s4 had 802.11ac. No one knows if it is a lighter UI. It could be 'heavier'

I don't hate the back but that front is hideous..

Though I'm not big fan of the design (I could live with it though), I think that thanks to soft touch finish, this will be very pleasant and ergonomic to hold.

It will. Can't wait to demo it in person come April.

Its worth an upgrade if you are coming from S3, not from S4 nor Note 3. Samsung fans were really expecting a more premium design.

It has a much improved design, especially considering it sports a IP67, something people are starting to care about.
