Samsung’s Galaxy phones are clearly among the most anticipated mobile devices of the year and the same is true for Galaxy S5, the next generation version of Samsung flagship. While salient features of the phone are known, the exact price and release date are still more of a mystery. On the specs front, we can expect it to pack some of the finest and most cutting-edge features in the market, considering that it happens to be the main rival of Apple’s iPhone.
Among the core components of the phone, we have 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM memory and a massive 2,800 mAh battery. The phone will be available in two storage options of 16GB and 32GB, although support for microSD card would allow you to expand the memory up to 64GB. At the back side of the camera, we have a 16 megapixel camera and at the front side there is a 2 megapixel shooter. Samsung has also said that Galaxy S5 would use a combination of WiFi and LTE in order to give enhanced downloading speeds which would theoretically amount to as high as 650 Mbps. So the hardware specs of the phone are, as expected, among the best in the industry.
Galaxy S5 will be equally packed with latest software features from Samsung Hub and Android Market. Additionally, it will also be equipped with fingerprint and heart rate scanners. But as for the price and release date of the phone, these details still remain unknown. Rest assured, the phone will be available from all the major retailers around the world, as per the official announcement. Giant carriers such as T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon have already confirmed that the phone will be available as soon as it is officially launched. Same goes for major retailers such as Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon and Target etc.
While the price of the phone is not exactly confirmed, various e-retailers have listed prices that vary between €650 and €700 in Europe. The carrier subsidized version of the phone will most probably have a usual price tag of $199 along with a two-year agreement. Various pre-loaded apps and subscriptions will be part of the complete package with estimated worth of $500. But to know about the exact price and release date of the phone, we will have to wait for a few days.
