Samsung Galaxy S5 officially announced: here’s what you need to know

February 24, 2014

Samsung Galaxy S5 aa 17

MWC 2014 Coverage brought to you by: Bitdefender Mobile Security & Antivirus for Android.

Samsung has now officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S5 at MWC 2014 in beautiful Barcelona, bringing revamped specs and a whole new look — at least for the back of the device.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a brand new soft touch (removable) back plate that is somewhat reminiscent of the Nexus 7 (2012). This is a pretty dramatic departure from both the glossy back found on the GS4 and the faux leather design introduced with the Note 3. Not surprisingly, the design is still plastic, though it does add IP67 dust and water resistance to the mix.

Whether the new look is a good change or a bad one probably comes down to your own personal taste.

As for the front? At first glance, it’s pretty much the same as always, though the Samsung home button introduces an integrated swipe-based fingerprint scanner. Turning to the display, there’s a 5.1-inch super AMOLED with the same 1080p resolution found on the Galaxy S4, despite rumors that suggested the Galaxy S5 would introduce a Quad HD display.

As you probably guessed, adding an even larger display means that the Galaxy S5 is taller (6mm), wider (about 2mm) and thicker (.2mm) than its predecessor with a slightly heavier weight of 145 grams.

Let’s jump into the rest of the specs, shall we?

Display5.1-inch Super AMOLED, Full HD (1920 x 1080), 432 ppi
Processor2.5GHz Snapdragon 801
RAM2GB
Storage16GB/32GB
Battery2800 mAh
Cameras16 MP rear LED flash with ISOCELL and 4K recording (limited to 5min), 2.1 MP front
Networks3G, LTE Cat. 3 2X2 MIMO
ConnectivityGPS, GLONASS, microUSB, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
Dimensions142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm,
145 grams
ColorsBlack White, Blue, Gold
Waterproof and dust resistant Rated IP67 - USB port covered with plastic flap
SoftwareAndroid 4.4

As you can see, while the rumor mill got some things right, there are at least a few surprises in terms of design language and specs.

Beyond the hardware changes, the Galaxy S5 introduces several new software features, though the UI changes aren’t as dramatic as some earlier rumors claimed it would be. Samsung’s TouchWiz style is still here, and the dock, homescreen and launcher remain essentially unchanged. The settings have been revamped with round icons and the notification dropdown toggles have also been updated with a look similar to what we’ve seen with the NotePro.

As you read this, we are busy gathering up more details about the software changes and new camera improvements. We’ll also be bringing you info on pricing and availability (as we learn it), tons of hands-on videos, comparison posts and more.

      Why? Just because they ran out of useless features to put in?

          stealing features from Apple and Sony. Sure whatever you say :/

          • Tjaldid

            yes key selling features Fingerprint scanner…. check… Waterproof… check…. Stamina mode… check… wrist straps for watch… check

          • Tyrone_83

            no iphone is waterproof so you fail at that. Stamina Mode in which version of Apple closed eco-sytem has that in it? Also wrist straps? Really your argument is invalid. try again.

          • Tjaldid

            APPLE AND SONY.<<<<<<<

          • Tyrone_83

            Where your proof to back up these outlandish and stupid claims? If your trying to troll me your doing a horrible job at it.

      • Shark Bait

        Because it looks ugly

        • AndroidBoss

          It’s alright looking. This phone is meant to be cheaper than the previous phones. And as others said, the bezel helps from breaking when dropped etc. So not that bad. But still, they could of done better.

          • jack

            Stop softening the negative. It looks awful

          • AndroidBoss

            Well at least I’m not a biased troll.

          • Shark Bait

            Well its not terrible, but with specs a pretty much level playing field these days style is the way to differentiate. Sony, HTC , moto and even oppo are pushing out attractive devices. And samsung drop this !!
            At least it might help level the field

          • AndroidBoss

            Yeah for sure I’m not buying it. But still an alright phone. They could of done way better. Idiots.

          • Shark Bait

            They difinatly could. But they’ll Still probably sell millions regardless, its just a shame they didn’t try and pish the boat out a little.

          • MadCowOnAStick

            maybe samsung is taking pity on htc and sony!

          • kg2128

            If that were true, HTC would have been the #1 seller over all other smartphones, clearly they weren’t.

          • Andrew Tan

            It is selling expensive than S4. Samsung never sell any phone cheaper than previous version before.

      • jack

        Fingerswipe is so 2007. Plus, 8 swipes to register a finger?

        • Raghunath Reddy Malli

          yes thats for accuracy, so that a theify cannot manipulate ur fingerprints lol

      • ddd

        Samsung phones are better features than piece of crab iPhone 5s.

    • Jesus

      Yeah explain?

      What’s fail about it??

      I think they did a good job, though maybe not a “Samsung job”, i.e. highest specs of EVERYTHING. No qHD, 3GB ram etc… but then again, who needs qHD on a phone.

      Also, no glossy back anymore, and IP67 dust / water resistant = WIN.

      • ddd

        People like biggest screen with qhd resolution compared to piece of crab iPhone 5s which doesn’t have qhd.

      • Obi Alfred

        It is QHD! WITH A CAPITAL Q!

        qHD was on old android phones (540p)

  • Juan

    que feo :P

    • Bryan Z

      lol

    Sigh, waterproof, it’s a cool feature but i can live without one. In contrast, now we need to deal with the extra dimension. Surprise, ladies and gentleman, your phone just got bigger, again.

  • gils001

    This is terrible….well at least we don’t have a 4k display resource hog. Nice try tho!

    I find it interesting that this is out before the live stream got out of music mode. Here’s to hoping the info isn’t completely right and it’s better than this…

    • gill0n

      I had a Galaxy !!! and sold it for a Nexus 5. I found the Galaxy frustrating to use. No matter how I held it, i would end up hitting the back button and closing the programs. This was especially noticeable when trying to take a picture. When making phone calls and having to press numbers to navigate, the phone would go black everytime I went to press. I was like playing Wackamolly. I ended up hating the phone. At least I can pick up my Nexus without the fear of setting something off.

  • asd

    I like samsung but it looks ugly plus it hasn’t being officially announced yet…I Am watching the youtube thing

  • Michael Hall

    Wow! After all the hype, what a let down. It’s essentially a Galaxy S4 with a larger case and a ?better camera. Given the reports about KitKat Interfering with sd card operation and file creation, it seems that those who are still on contract for an S4 with Android 4.3 are the winners! Gosh, that’s me for a change!

  • cycad007

    Wow…this is probably the UGLIEST flagship phone I’ve seen.

    • MasterMuffin

      They really should have used the faux leather of Note 3!

      • AndroidBoss

        Not the main problem. The bezels on the side are bigger. It might be better but it makes the whole phone look older.

        • MasterMuffin

          That’s weird, increasing the size of the screen and the size of the bezels o.O

          • AndroidBoss

            I know right. And the screen barely increased, and they double the size of the bezel…

          • http://www.facebook.com/abdullah.naji1 Abdullah Naji

            It’s probably because the S4′s screen breaked a lot due to the small bezel. OR maybe it’s for the IP67 certification -don’t forget, they needed to insulate all the buttons and do some more shit.

        • NTD

          This really does look like a Circa 2011 phone. What gives?

    • shivansh

      my lg g2 looks way better and cool than s5 seriously the ugliest phone with crapy features except fingerprint scanner.

      • Brandon Miranda

        Even the fingerprint scanner sucks. Looks at all the reviews of it.

    • Shark Bait

      Yeahhh, what a way to bum out. With specs a pretty much level playing field these days style is the way to differentiate. Sony, HTC , moto and even oppo are pushing out attractive devices. And samsung drop this !!
      At least it might help level the field

    I was really hoping this wouldn’t happen, samsung really have taken themselves down now. :( It’s going to be difficult to argue with iPhone users that samsung is the alpha race

    • mediumsizedrob

      The looks are bad, but it’s the total lack of development in the spec department that most people are disappointed about. Calm down.

      • Bryan Z

        Lol this “Guest” & George AV are the same person posting the same comment being a pussy about Samsung, just pathetic.

  • George Av

    HEY GUYS LISTEN UP!!!

    the Iphone 5s looks like the 5

    STOP BASHING SAMSUNG AND BASH EVERYONE YOU FUCKING LOSERS.. geez. What is wrong with the Tech community

    • Foramex

      The difference is that this exactly matches the phone to the competition. Look at LG, what a difference they made. I woudl take the G2 over S5 any day, and you still haven’t seen G3!!
      The biggest problem with S5 isn’t the design: I would take same design, 2K display, new processor, better system every day. The biggest problem of this phone is there’s virtually no difference between this and the S4. Basically, this phone is lame, a big let down, and certainly no reason to upgrade from S4, and maybe downgrade from S5 to G2, which matches it in hardware, tops in software.

      • hoggleboggle

        I agree there is virtually no difference between this and the s4. Oh, except for the faster processor. And the improved screen which will hopefully not shatter at the slightest drop thanks to the larger raised edge bezel. And the fact it is now ip67 rated. And has improved battery life. And has improved wireless connections. And has a reshaped body. And added a better camera. But otherwise they are identical!

        • George Av

          If you hold them side my side, you WILL be able to tell the difference, if not, you must be very blind.

          • Brandon Miranda

            Obviously, but is it enough to make you go, “Damn, I wan’t this phone.” No.

    • Amine Elouakil

      The things is, The S5 is based on the S4 which is exactly similar to the S3 which is inspired by the S2 which looks like the S1 which an iPhone copy.

      The Z2 is indeed a copy of the Z1 but it’s the first iteration and a good design to begin with unlike Samsung design which to say the least is uninspired and cheap/fake.

      As for the One, well HTC never used that design before, and it is an award winning design, and many agrees that it’s the best design out there, there is no reason for HTC to change that

      And for the lols, I know I’ve already posted this but it’s quite funny
      http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BhQwHHUCQAAVYm5.jpg

      • Raghunath Reddy Malli

        really? S1 S2 S3 and S4 doesnot look similar at all… WTH dude.. get ur things striaght dont just listen on reads about phones use them to know them.

        • Amine Elouakil

          They look similar, they do not look the same, hence the use of the words, heck people will say that the S3 does not look the same as the S4 and the S5 since they have different screen size, aspect ratio, and curves, but do they look similar absolutly and they look almost the same

      • kg2128

        The HTC One is my favorite smartphone design, but the “award winning design” doesn’t mean anything. It had too many hardware drawbacks to take advantage of it and sales were nothing like the S4/Note 3

        • Amine Elouakil

          Drawback such as? By design award they mean style but even from an engineer perspective the perfect is a marvel (doesn’t mean it’s perfect), The One just won the best Phone of 2013 periode yesterday in MWC just another award, one of many they managed to snatch ^^

      • Tyrone_83

        People are complaining about a back of a phone when is most likely gonna be in a case. Funny how the Nexus 7 back looks just the S5′s and everybody loved that tablet nobody complained about that.

        • Amine Elouakil

          I don’t put my phones in a case. You don’t pay premium price for the Nexus 7 not to mention that Nexus 7 is black and the holes are not noticeable and way spaced while Samsung is going for flashy colors and the holes are huge

    • Andrew Tan

      Others company improving the look.

      Samsung degrading the look.

      That is the differences!

      • Jesus

        This looks better than the s4.

        • Obi Alfred

          No it doesn’t.

          • kg2128

            it doesn’t because the s4 looked a lot better than people say it looked. They bashed it so hard and praised the htc one so much, but not that many people actually bought the htc one that earned so much praise.

      • Raghunath Reddy Malli

        samsung has much more to come just saving for the future.. note 4 coming in summer 14, gs6 in winter 14..so just wait and watch

    • Shark Bait

      Yes but the difference is, the HTC, Sony and iPhone all looked nice

    • Bryan Z

      Stop being such a wuss samsung fucked up with this phone period. Luckly the Android Community (not “the tech community”) has plenty of other great phone to choose from

  • Andrew Tan

    R.I.P Samsung Galaxy S5, worst spec than my current Note 3 with the most awful design in touch flagship phone!

    • Flip Jumpman

      I agree this S5 is a big disappointment, especially at least in the spec department. Wait for another Galaxy “ABC…” version bc they surely killed the S-line. Galaxy F w/ Tizen.
      Maybe it’s on purpose? Who the hell knows? Just please don’t wreck the Note 4!

    • Raghunath Reddy Malli

      Note 3 and GS5 are two diff segments

  • shivansh

    just saying but nokia xl is rather better than s5 lol. Crap phone same g2 specs excluding useless features.what a epic fail !! seriously i am thinking why i wake up till midnight to see this horrible nightmare galaxy shit5.haha

  • Shark Bait

    HANG ON, what happened to refined software and new hardware styling, this is a total lacklustre update.

    • Bryan Z

      I really had my hopes up for the S5 this has been a total let down hell I think Lenovo has better phones this year.

  • Bryan Z

    Samsung should just never EVER advertise the back of this thing. Its so ugly. EPIC FAIL indeed

  • http://droidcent.com/ Marsel

    So much for a toned down version of Touchwiz? C’mon Samsung, that’s all I ever wanted was a more “Pure Google” experience. I’ve been a Sammy faithful for some time now, but I have to say this is a bit disappointing. With that said it’s still a really nice phone, but is it a great phone? Only time will tell.

    • Jesus

      I don’t get this argument anymore.

      If people want a pure Google experience, why not get a Nexus? Why not get the Google version of the S4 etc.

      Flagships are expensive. What you’re paying for is essentially the SOFTWARE.

      • http://droidcent.com/ Marsel

        Where is the $199 dollar S4 Play Store Edition? Oh yea that’s right it doesn’t exist. Most consumer’s do not even realize Google sells GPE phones, Samsung is only hurting themselves here. It doesn’t bother me cause I always root my phones and throw AOSP on there anyway whether it be CM, AOKP, PA, whatever. But I’m just saying they should have dialed back on touchwiz even from a fanboy’s standpoint it’s too freaking much.

        • Jesus

          Mate, you buy these phones just to put ASOP on them? What’s the point of buying them in the first place?

          The loser here is you, for spending so much and using so little. You could’ve just bought a Nexus in the first place, and not be so mad, dawg.

          And there is an S4 Play Edition, where do you live? Seems like under a rock.

          • http://droidcent.com/ Marsel

            I said where is there a 199 dollar Play store Edition. It’s 649 dude Jesus can you read? Now first are you trying to troll me, “dawg”? I buy them because like most 90+ percent of people here in the US we are under contract, and every so often we get an upgrade and I do not feel like spending 649.99 on a GPE Phone, who does? So I spend 199 on a 600 dollar phone, or even better wait a few months and get it on sale for like 99 bucks. And second if you can recall the Nexus devices did not have LTE up until the Nexus 5, so that was a huge deciding factor, not the only one I might add. I have to have MicroSD card slot for a 16gb phone, that’s not enough. Not to mention most Nexus devices have poor camera’s. The Nexus are great but not for everyone. I’m not the loser here I’m saving a ton of Money and getting the best of both worlds, the Nexus’s AOSP, and the Galaxy devices superior features LTE/MicroSD slot/Superior Camera.

    Fail

    GUYS, we are forgetting the real enemy here… APPLE!

  • Goding Wal

    My Expectations on this phone were too high from hearing the rumors and now i’ll probably just get the Note 3

  • Brandon Miranda

    I don’t even know what to say. Can I have an android lover help me get over this? I’m having a love hate affair with this phone. Love android and features but there’s certain things that Samsung did that really push my buttons!!

  • Groud Frank

    Now that the dust has settled I’m a lot less shocked and angry. Maybe this is good for Samsung. They didn’t feature spam the phone but added useful things like water and dust resistance, ISOCELL camera, etc. I would have liked to see a refresh of the hardware and software aesthetics but that will come eventually. I’m glad they didn’t slap 3 GB of RAM and QHD screen on it just for the sake of keeping up with other products, including the Note 3(which I own and love btw). I think Samsung is finally maturing. It’s not a specs race, it’s a user experience race and more OEMs should understand that. Hat’s off to you Samsung.

    • hoggleboggle

      It’s nice to see someone being reasonable about this. Aside from the aesthetics I think this should be quite an improvement over the s4

  • cheesedoff

    I cried at how disappointing this release is. I had waited for the S5 for a long time now, I skip the S4 just for this.

    It’s a shame that the most exciting ‘upgrade’ about this phone is the back of the case…. wow.

    • Obi Alfred

      Give samsung the finger by buying the Xperia X2 or HTC One (2014)

  • ddd

    Samsung should redesign the galaxy s5 because they didn’t change design and touch wiz U.I. and screen size is 0.1 bigger from galaxy s4, and less ppi. Samsung fans are very disappointed about gs5 design but they focus on health app and camera. If gs5 come out to the u.s wireless carriers, then customers won’t buy it no matter what. People said that galaxy s4 didn’t change design from galaxy s3. They better change design the galaxy s5. The company won’t get much sales until galaxy s6 will come out in 2015. I am samsung fan so they have to change the design of galaxy s5. If galaxy s6 has same design from previous flagship, then people won’t buy it in 2015.

    • ddd

      Samsung should get better design like next tablets and galaxy phones throughout the future. Samsung will be # 1 company in the future market.

  • ddd

    Samsung should redesign the galaxy s5 because they focus on processor and camera, and health app. People said that galaxy s4 didn’t change design from gs3. If galaxy s5 comes to the u.s carriers, people won’t buy it no matter what and samsung won’t get much phone sales until galaxy s6 will come out. If galaxy s6 has same design as previous galaxy phone flagship, people won’t get it. All next galaxy phones and tablets should design better throughout the future.

  • Ian Huntly

    Going backwards, not enough RAM to start with, my Note 3 will be better on big apps.

  • Nurs1991

    Hopefully they will announce “Prime” Version of Samsung Galaxy S5

  • Blowntoaster

    why are people ranting about the S5 being a failure? I at first was disappointed. but I think people have come to expect way too much from technology. it’s advancing way too fast and has to slow down at some point, and this year is that year.

    And what about the G Pro 2, Xperia Z2? they all had incremental upgrades. nothing major. The S5 is just an slightly upgraded version of last year’s model, just about the same as all the other manufacturers did with their devices.

    The HTC One successor will most probably follow suit and just have a Snadragon 800/1 2.3 – 2.5 ghz processor, hopefully improved camera and a software tweak here and there.

    at least Samsung tried to improve the UI, which in time most people will get used to.

    I think 2014 is the year where all manufacturers are on equal ground and it will come down to price, availability and software/accesories. I’m betting on Q3/Q4 when the Nexus 5/6 2014 model and Note 4 will launch. those are the 2014 phones to really look to for something epic.
    Right Now, my personal favourite is still the Note 3.

    • Thanhxvo

      My first reaction when I saw this phone is it’s ugly. I tried to convince myself to like it but looking into the specs and I’m even more disappointed. I’m a huge Samsung fan but I can’t help but notice the difference when I hold an iPhone compared to the plastic phone. They got it right with the note 3, made it feel and look more premium. But the s5 just looks like garbage.

  • Hrishikesh Bisen

    Snapdragon 801….not 800

    • Amine Elouakil

      801 is an 800, and it’s just a rename, to be more precise the S801 is the 8x74AC, which is part of the S800 familly

  • Jesus Domingo

    they should’ve just dropped the fingerprint scanner. that thing won’t work with just one hand since it requires a vertical swipe. they were going to copy anyways, should’ve just copied apple’s approach of image-based scanning so you get the print on button press.

    water resistance and real-time HDR photo preview and video recording are great features though.

  • Damon Salvador

    Samshit : You just went retard , Never go full retard .. epic shame !! Galaxy Shitty 5

    For me this look like a Samsung galaxy grand… ohh Samsung why are u doing this :(

  • sisore

    Is the galaxy beginning to be eaten by blackholes?

  • https://plus.google.com/+EvanFeldman95/ Evan Feldman

    Not to bad, and could have been much, much worse. Hopefully sammy will slowly overhaul the UI, one thing at a time so they don’t through users a curve ball like Apple did.
    If the battery life is good, that fact it is waterproof could be a killer feature for people leaning to an iPhone.

  • dsDoan

    Still including the antiquated home button? Pass.

  • Austin Li

    People, this phone can measure your heartbeat, is water resistant, has currently the fastest Wi-Fi, and has a much better user interface. The Galaxy Gear 2 and the Gear Fit launched alongside this flagship smartphone.

  • Austin Li

    I wish the GS5 had 3 GB of RAM instead of 2 GB of RAM. And a higher pixel density of 441 like on the GS4 instead of 432 ppi.

    • Max_says

      The human eye cant notice the increase in ppi after a point. Some people say that point is 300 ppi, some say 350 and some say 400 ppi. And this phone has more than that.

      As for RAM, the gs4 was plenty fast with 4.1, but this ships with 4.4 which uses RAM more efficiently so you wont miss much, in my opinion.

    • http://droidcent.com/ Marsel

      Lol are you kidding me? There’s virtually no difference in 300ppi vs 400ppi, yet alone 441 and 432, you will not be able to see a difference at all, not even if you tried hard staring at the phone 1 inch away. 3GB of Ram would have been nice sure, but it really isn’t necessary as 2gb runs plenty of apps just fine. I mean look at the iPhone 5S still rocking 1gb of RAM and you don’t see Apple Enthusiasts complaining.

  • Austin Li

    I have no idea why none of you like the perforated back cover.

    I watched Samsung unpacked event in mwc 2014. Samsung should redesign the s5 because they focused on camera and specs, and health app. They didn’t change the design from s4 to s5. Samsung fans are very disappointed. When s5 comes to the u.s carriers, people won’t buy s5 and Samsung won’t get much sales in the technology market. If galaxy s6 has same design from s4, people won’t buy it until 2015. I think that Samsung gets broader ideas for next-generation galaxy phones and tablets throughout the future.

      Samsung should redesign galaxy s5 before April 11 2014. If they didn’t do it, they aren’t successful company.

        Samsung is #1 company in the world market.

    Samsung fans watched unpacked event in mwc 2014 and samsung workers showed the galaxy s5, but they didn’t change design and can’t rid of home button. People said that samsung didn’t change design from s3 to s4 so they didn’t change phone design from s4 to s5. They focus on faster processor and camera, and fitness. I was very disappointed from samsung. They should redesign the phone before april 11, 2014. When galaxy s5 will come to the u.s carriers, people won’t buy it no matter what. Samsung won’t get much sales around the world. If they design the galaxy s6 from previous galaxy phone model, people don’t buy it ever and ever. Samsung should do broader ideas to design the future galaxy phones and tablets.
    I am a samsung fan so SAMSUNG SHOULD REDESIGN THE GALAXY S5 AND MAKE BIGGER SCREEN LIKE 5.3 INCHES WITH BETTER RESOLUTION, AND BETTER BACK COVER BEFORE APRIL 11, 2014.

    I like how many people on here picked on Apple for the “useless” finger scanner on the iPhone 5S and don’t have a problem with this scanner. I don’t own an iPhone 5S (iPhone 5 is my current phone) but it is a pretty neat little feature, although hardly required. Don’t say I am an Apple Fanboy either, I currently own a 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. May consider an HTC One in the future.

    Just pointing out an observation.

      Uh everybody has a problem with this scanner, are you retarded?

      • Sean Karpa

        Nah, I am not retarded. Personal attacks really undermine any message you may be trying to send

  • Obi Alfred

    Thanks but no thanks Samsung.

    Waiting for that Moto X (2014) coming out in the summer.

    The front looks pretty S2-ish

    Samsung showed the next galaxy s5 in MWC 2014 and they design galaxy s5 as s4. WHY CAN THEY DESIGN DIFFERENTLY? I was very disappointed from Samsung. It has 5.1 inch from 5 inch screen size. They focus on camera, health app, and processor. They should made 5.3 inches for galaxy s5. They should design the galaxy s5 then they will release the phone 4/11/14. When galaxy s5 come to the u.s carriers, people won’t buy it no matter what. Samsung should design better for next galaxy phones and tablets.

      Samsung is better than Apple.

    This is a marked departure from the company’s previous strategy of cramming in every software feature under the sun, which leads us to wonder if this is related to Samsung’s recent agreement to dial back the customization it does on Android devices.
