Side touch camera button for the Samsung Galaxy S5?
According to a report published on Wednesday, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature a capacitive shutter button on the lower right side of the case. This button will work only on certain modes. It is also possible that the button will take on new functions for different apps. The same report lists the rear camera as being 16MP and will be capable of capturing 4K video at 30fps and 1080p video at 60fps.

The report also reveals that the camera will have a number of new shooting modes. A 3D Tour Shot allows you to take "interactive tours of your surroundings." Auto portrait lets you take a selfie using the rear camera. And amid rumors that the phone will be waterproof, there is an Aqua mode that is made for underwater photography. Drama mode allows you to take multiple pictures of a moving subject and merge it into one dramatic shot.

With the Samsung Galaxy S5 expected to be introduced at MWC, we are just days away from seeing Sammy unveil one of the most eagerly awaited Android models for 2014.
