Samsung Launches Galaxy S5 in India with True Octa Core Processor
Samsung today launched its first flagship product for this year, the Samsung Galaxy S5. However, the company has not revealed any pricing of the product. Alongside, the Samsung Galaxy S5, the company has also launched three of its newly launched wearable devices; the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit.
The Galaxy S5 is IP67 Dust and water Resistant, which means; it can be used in rain, and wet condition, but keeping in mind it is not water proof. The Galaxy S5 also features a heart rate sensor, located just below the back camera and next to the new layout led flash. It also offers a Fingerprint Scanner, providing a secure, biometric screen locking feature and a seamless and safe mobile payment experience to the users.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 sports a 5.1 Full HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The Galaxy S5 is powered by a true Octa-Core chipset which Samsung India failed to elaborate more on, but we believe it to be the Exynos 5422 (Octa-core application processor Quad 1.9 GHz + Quad 1.3 GHz) processor with Heterogeneous Multi-Processing and has XMM6360 for HSPA+ connectivity.
This new Galaxy is packed with a 2 GB of RAM and 16/32 GB of storage which is expandable to 128 GB via MicroSD card. Just like the global variant it has a 16 MP camera with an enhanced menu and user interface that allows users to take, edit and share photos. The Galaxy S5 offers the world’s fastest autofocus speed of 0.3 seconds. The new Selective Focus feature allows users to focus on a specific area of an object while blurring out the background. Most importantly, the Galaxy S5 also is capable of shootin 4K videos.
The device is packed with a 2800 mAh battery which is removable if required. Samsung has introduced a Ultra Power Saving Mode which turns the display to black and white, and shuts down all unnecessary features to minimize the battery consumption. During the keynote, the company said if the S5 is at 10% battery level and if you switch on the Ultra Power Saving Mode, the device will further be active on standby for 24 hours.
Stay tuned, as we will share more details as soon as we get them. Moreover, going through the leaks, the device is expected to launch around the price tag of Rs. 51,000. Even though our earlier reports pegged the price down to Rs. 41,000 it seems the company will be selling it much higher.
