Samsung introduced the much anticipated Galaxy S5 at the Mobile Unpacked event in Spain yesterday. The successor of the bestselling Galaxy S series looks pretty much the same as the predecessor but packs some meaty hardware to set it apart from the crowd.

Furthermore, the camera gains video HDR, selective focus mode, virtual tour shot and more.
Rounding up the spec sheet is the IP67 standard resistance against dust and water, finger scanner on the home button, heart rate sensor at the back, S Health 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ac MIMO, Download Booster that combines both LTE and Wi-Fi connection, Ultra Power Saving Mode, NFC, 2800mAh battery.
There’s no word on the price but Samsung will release the device on April 11 in over 150 countries in colour options of white, black, blue and gold.
