Confirmed! Samsung Galaxy S5 Launching in April 2014 Globally

Right move along now S4, there’s a new player in town and it’s your cooler brother – the Samsung Galaxy S5!

All eyes were on the Samsung Galaxy S5 yesterday at the Mobile World Congress. After much speculation, Samsung finally unveiled its latest smartphone, the S5 to a packed conference.

The latest device apparently comes with water-resistant casing, improved 16-megapixel camera, heart rate sensor and also fingerprint technology! We can’t help but feel that they got inspired from a certain fruity tech giant.

The phone runs on Android 4.4 Kit Kat and has a slightly bigger screen than its predecessor at 5.1 inch.

One welcomed update is that the S5 will be replacing the S4’s glossy plastic battery cover with a “modern glam” perforated finish that will be much more comfortable to hold and doesn’t slide off surfaces as much.

Samsung will be offering the S5 in four different colours – black, white, blue and gold.

The S5 will be available starting April 11th in 150 countries. But don’t hold your breath for the local release here in Malaysia, it will probably take a few months before reaching our shores.

No word on pricing yet but it should be announced nearer to the launch date.
