Samsung confirmed the release date for the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Gear 2 and Gear Neo for April 11, 2014. The company introduced these three new devices during its "Unpacked" event earlier today.
The Galaxy S5 will replace the S4 as Samsung's current flagship device and will feature what the company deems a "glam" design with a perforated back plate that shines in different lighting conditions. It will have full LTE coverage, Wi-Fi MIMO 802.11 to cut down buffering, and a download booster that will allow users to download 1GB worth of media in 30 seconds.
Samsung has also drastically improved the battery that now provides users with 10 hours of web surfing and 12 hours of video playback and offers a new Ultra Power Saving mode. This new mode can grant the user another 24 hours' worth of power if their phone is at 10 percent. It does this by only keeping necessary functions on and turning the screen to black and white.
Samsung also decided to install a fingerprint swipe feature that users can utilize for authorizing payments. It can unlock a special private mode which secures all important documents, settings and files.
The Galaxy S5 camera will come with a 0.3 second autofocus which is the fastest on the market, according to Samsung. It also features select focus, which allows the photographer to decide what in their image will be in and out of focus, and its new HDR mode controls light exposure the moment they focus on something.
The device will be the first to feature a heart rate monitor for a top notch fitness experience. Samsung's S Health will also be available and it allows users to download an app called Coach that is designed to keep users in shape.
Other features on the GS5 include a 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED Display and it will come in four colors: Charcoal Black, White, Electric Blue and Copper Gold.
