People with real commitment to selfies now have a godsend gift of a smartphone from Samsung. All new Samsung Galaxy S5 which is rumored to debut next week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is a waterproof and dustproof smartphone. Buyers can not only take selfies with whales, they can also go sand boarding behind an SUV.
Last year Samsung offered the Galaxy S4 active, an alternative of the regular Galaxy S4. The Active version had a somewhat bigger case and was IP67 certified, it could withstand a 30-minute submersion down to about 3 feet of water.
The Smartphone will also feature a 5.25 inch QHD or @K screen which will depend on phone version, Snapdragon 800 or 805 chipset. It will also feature 4 Krait cores running at 2.GHz and either a 16MP or 21MP primary camera.
The Smartphone will include optical image stabilization, a 2MP front-facing camera, 3BG of Ram and Android 4.4 Kit Kat. There might even be a gold version of the device available on the market.
There is also a mitigator – ISOCELL. A new sensor type that Samsung has announced last year in 2013, which is an evolved version of the BSI camera sensors features in most phones these days.
Samsung claims it offers better low-light performance and much greater color fidelity than FSI or BSO sensors. It makes barriers between pixels and also increases the sensitivity of the sensor pixels to bring in more light.
There might be a possibility of wireless charging to be included in the Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S5 will also feature a fingerprint sensor which will be located at the central select button.
There’s more to come, yet consumers will have to wait till its launch on the evening of 24th February.
