Samsung has announced its new flagship smartphone the Samsung Galaxy S5 at its Samsung Unpacked 5 event at Mobile World Congress 2014.

With new extras in the Galaxy S5 like to include a fingerprint scanner on the home button, a heart rate sensor on the back and smart modes for the 16-megapixel camera.

The Galaxy S5 has a Download Booster feature that uses both LTE and Wi-Fi at the same time for super fast connections.

Specs on the Galaxy S5 are top end. Power comes from a 2.5GHz quad-core chipset backed by 2GB of RAM. Onboard storage is either 16GB or 32GB storage with microSD expansion

On the front there’s a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display offering 1920 x 1080 pixels, not the 2K screen that was rumoured also with a 2800mAh battery. It will be released on 11th April in 150 countries.

On the rear of the Galaxy S5 is a heart rate sensor that sits perfectly where your index finger rests when holding the handset normally. This can be used for independant measuring or to add to your S Health 3.0 app for a complete picture of your health levels throughout the day.

On front of the Galaxy S5 looks like it features the normal home button but it’s actually a fingerprint scanner. With the iPhone 5S, which requires a press to unlock, the Galaxy S5 will require you to swipe down. With the fingerprint scanner like when buying items with PayPal as a secure means of verifying your account and identity.

The Galaxy S5 comes with a 16-megapixel camera which is capable of shooting 4K UHD video. The new HDR Live mode has been added which allows users to see HDR correcting a picture live on the screen. So if shooting into bright light has darkened the rest of the shot a quick tap of HDR and the brightened, more balanced, end result can be seen before taking the shot.

The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO have the world’s first 12.2-inch WQXGA Widescreen (16:10) display, offering crystal clear resolution (2560×1600) with more than 4 million pixels, making it the ideal platform to create and view content. With a larger viewing area, the defined screen makes it easy to enjoy stunning Full HD video play and view even more information at a glance. In addition to the industry-leading display, the devices have been designed with a sleek, light, slim frame.

A personalised Content Home feature also allows users to tailor their Galaxy tablet experience. The Content Home UX enables users to organise their favourite content in an easy-to-use dashboard with automatic feeds and news updates.

Powerful Partner for Productivity

The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO (12.2) comes equipped with multiple tools to help users to manage both their personal and professional lives.

Multi Window enables users to split the screen into four different windows and an innovative Virtual Keyboard provides them with enough space to type comfortably, leveraging haptic feedback to produce a more realistic typing experience.

The Samsung S Pen, which is included with the Galaxy NotePRO, delivers a more responsive, productive and efficient tablet experience when accessing features such as Action Memo, Scrapbook, Screen Write and S Finder.

Samsung Electronics today announced the launch of the Galaxy NX, the world’s first 4G interchangeable lens Connected Compact System Camera (CSC). Versatile and easy to use, the Galaxy NX combines cutting edge optical performance with connectivity capabilities and Android applications. The result is a new type of connected device which means you can share your experiences instantly in amazing colour and outstanding detail.

CDW - Samsung Galaxy NX Camera - 6

Featuring 3G/4G LTE technology, the Galaxy NX means anyone interested in photography can stay constantly connected with their world. Promising speedy sharing whether on the move or at home, the seamless connectivity of the Galaxy NX makes it a device that puts the sharing of professional level images at its heart. It embraces the era of visual communication by providing an outlet for passionate photographers to express their exciting experiences immediately and in spectacular quality.

CDW - Samsung Galaxy NX Camera - 5

The Galaxy NX is designed to help you capture the scene and mood of every place you visit. Photo Suggest gives you location-based recommendations of popular photography spots, sourced from a huge library of images taken by other photographers from around the world. Story Album allows you to look back at your photos on one timeline, reframing and resizing them to create digital photo books which can be viewed and shared on your other devices.

CDW - Samsung Galaxy NX Camera - 1

Image quality is really something to shout about thanks to the array of interchangeable lenses available with the Galaxy NX. The 20.3MP APS-C Sensor produces images which are bright and detailed, even in low light conditions, while the DRIMe IV Image Signal Processer delivers the speed and accuracy that today’s photographers demand.

Its Advanced Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) System ensures accurate phase and contrast detection so you can capture crisp, vibrant shots, while the 1/6000 sec shutter speed and 8.6fps shooting means you can capture the action as it is happening.

The flexibility offered by the Galaxy NX’s selection of interchangeable lenses – from compact pancake lenses and an ultra-wide fisheye, to longer prime and zoom lenses – places creative control firmly in the hands of the photographer. True 3D Creator also brings an added element of realism to the Galaxy NX results, allowing you to shoot images and movies in 3D with Samsung’s 45mm 2D/3D lens.

CDW - Samsung Galaxy NX Camera - 3

With Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the functionality of a smartphone is used to improve the photographic experience you get with the Galaxy NX. You can choose from a huge array of Android apps to help personalise your device and do more than just shoot amazing photographs and video, from editing images, to adding special effects and staying in touch with friends and family.

CDW - Samsung Galaxy NX Camera - 5

More than 30 Smart Mode options mean you can choose the optimum settings for the environment you are capturing, as well as create fresh, artistic images. Multi Exposure merges two different shots together to produce one distinctive image, while Animated Photo connects continuous shots of up to five seconds, creating a moving GIF file. For added realism, Sound & Shot stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken, so moments are captured exactly as they happen.

CDW - Samsung Galaxy NX Camera - 7

For added personalisation, Camera Studio allows you to easily customise settings with your most frequently used applications or camera modes, so you can capture your photos exactly how you want them.

samsung_galaxy_ace_3_black

Powered by a 1.2GHz dual core processor and 1GB of RAM, the Galaxy Ace 3 features a 4-inch 480×800 display as well as a 5-megapixel camera.

The phone runs Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and comes with a raft of Samsung’s exclusive software pre-installed, including S Translator, S Travel, Smart Stay and S Voice.

The device will replace the existing Galaxy Ace 2, offering a speedier processor and RAM upgrade but retaining the same camera capabilities.

Samsung is yet to announce pricing and a release date for the Galaxy Ace 3, but it is expected to retail at around £200.

The long-rumoured Galaxy S4 Mini is expected to be a scaled-down version of the flagship device, with a smaller form factor, reduced specs and a lower price tag.

Samsung is also believed to be working on a water and dust-proof edition dubbed the Galaxy S4 Active, which has been tipped for release in mid-July alongside the S4 Mini.

A Galaxy S4 Zoom is allegedly in development too, offering a more powerful 16-megapixel camera than the standard 13-megapixel snapper, and is rumoured to land during the first week of June.

Samsung is yet to officially confirm the new models of the Galaxy S4.
