Samsung held a presentation today, February 24, where the company announced its new flagship. Below I will try to summarize the presentation. Let’s go.
After ten tedious minutes of the orchestra playing the violin, the company representatives did come on stage and began to talk about the company’s successes. Not much time was given to this as they immediately moved on to the key part of the presentation. The Galaxy S5.
The flagship’s screen diagonal is 5.1" colors and brightness are adaptive and depend on many factors. FULL HD.
The device is now waterproof. Well, almost… You can’t be under water with it, but it protects from splashing and showering.
The S5 is available in four color variations – black, white, blue (Electric Blue), and… who would have thought… gold.
Fingerprint scanner appeared. For login, access to payments and secure applications. To use the scanner, you need to make a vertical swipe on the Home button.
