Samsung is back with another flagship Galaxy S smartphone. The new model for 2014, which is predictably called the Galaxy S5, is another premium device packed with an eye-watering number of new software and hardware features.


While it sports another 5-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display, this is a noticeable upgrade to the Galaxy S4. A new heart rate monitor has been fitted under the rear-facing camera, which has been bumped up from a 13-megapixel to 16-megapixel sensor. The time spent between shots has been reduced to a third of a second and now supports 4K video recording and spot focusing.


Taking inspiration from the iPhone 5s, the Galaxy S5 is also equipped with a fingerprint sensor, which will give you the ability to unlock the device and make payments using a single swipe with one of your digits.


Samsung’s new flagship runs on Android version 4.4 (KitKat), but of greater note is the new TouchWiz skin that’s been layered on top. Some consumers have criticized the Galaxy series for its software experience and at first glance, it looks like Samsung has taken great strides to rectify this in the Galaxy S5.
