Samsung infographic shows us how far the Samsung Galaxy S line has come

44
The fifth iteration of Samsung's flagship Android handset was announced Monday in Barcelona as you surely know. Waiting for the new Samsung Galaxy S model to be unveiled has become an annual event anticipated as much as the yearly updating of the Apple iPhone. And my, has Sammy's little boy become all grown up!

An infographic released on Tuesday by the Korean manufacturer shows how the Samsung Galaxy S line started with the OG phone sporting a 4 inch, Super AMOLED screen and powered by a 1GHz processor. The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 5.1 inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, powered by a quad-core 2.5GHz CPU. Along the way, the rear-facing camera has gone from 5MP to 16MP while the battery inside the device has seen its capacity rise from 1500mAh to 2800mAh on the just unveiled unit.

As the infographic reminds us, it has been quite an evolutionary journey for Samsung's flagship Android handset over the last five years. And this year, the Samsung Galaxy S5 adds a fingerprint scanner, IP67 certification and a heart rate monitor. And whose pulse wouldn't quicken when holding this phone? We can't wait to see what the next five years brings.
