Samsung Galaxy S5 - Release date, tech specs and Price
The South Korean Smartphone Manufacturer has released a few details about their next high end device- The Samsung Galaxy S5. Despite Creating quite a buzz through their previous flagship device (Samsung Galaxy S4) courtesy of a few new unique features such as Air View, Motion-Gesture Control and an Octa Core Processor, the Smartphone didn't end up being the next big thing. One of the major reason might be because of the same old plastiky feel that Samsung has been persisting with over the years. The news that Samsung was overclocking the device to get higher benchmark scores didn't help either.
Samsung Galaxy S5 looks slightly better from the back and is available in various colors, as far as the the tech specs of the handset is concerned, the handset is not very different from S4 apart from a faster processor,a slightly larger display screen, finger print scanner and few more mega pixels in the camera. The best part of the phone is it will be priced at a price point below the price at which S4 was launched. Have a look at the release date, price and tech specs in detail below.
