Samsung says that it is going back to basics in its newest flagship smartphone the Galaxy S5 even as it increased the technical performance of the device.
The built-in camera is said to have the world's fastest autofocus speed up to 0.3 seconds, and comes with a 16 megapixel sensor.
The Galaxy S5 supports the fifth generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac and 2X2 MIMO, and supporting the large number of LTE frequency with LTE Category 4 standard. For consumers seeking an even faster connection, the phone can also download via Wi-Fi and LTE simultaneously.
The Galaxy S5 is IP67 dust and water resistant. It also offers a Finger Scanner, providing a biometric screen locking feature.
A power saving mode turns the display to black and white, and shuts down all unnecessary features to minimize the battery consumption.
The device will be available globally in April.
