As I told you a few weeks ago here, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress event yesterday along with a whole host of other handsets and smart watches from some of the World’s leading manufacturers. The S5 was the standout turn though and it is easy to see why, the Samsung Galaxy S5 specs, although not ground breaking, are yet another step up. They have taken the S4 and enhanced it across the board to create another handset that I am certain will appeal to the masses.
I am pleased to say that I got most of the predicted specifications correct, although I was slightly off on the name ‘SV’ rather than ‘S5’ – darn those Roman numerals! I was also a fraction out on the size increase too, its only 5.1 inch rather than 5.2 inch but I did call the on-board fingerprint scanner and 16 megapixel camera.
Here’s the Galaxy S5 specs in full:

There are a lot of S5 technical specifications to digest, most seem pretty standard but it is certainly a step up from the Galaxy S4 which sold well and I am sure that the S5 will continue to appeal to Samsung fans and new customers alike.
