KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 26 May 2014 – The perforated pattern on the back cover of the newly-launched GALAXY S5 smartphone is now given a brand new look through the arrival of two new colour variants – gold and electric blue. Samsung Malaysia Electronics today announced the availability of both colours.
Lee Dong Yong, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics said: “The introduction of the two colour variants continues to emphasise the iconic design of the GALAXY S5. We hope to create opportunities for our consumers to improve their everyday lives, be it through a fashion trend, a favourite feature or simply, a holistic smartphone experience. This fuels our desire to deliver people-inspired innovation with essential features for day-to-day use.”
With the advanced camera on the GALAXY S5, users can capture precious memories with professional-like picture quality. Its 16MP camera allows users to rapidly shot images, thanks to the fast auto focus speed of up to 0.3 seconds. The advanced High Dynamic Range (HDR) feature reproduces natural light and colour to ensure photos taken are as close to what we see through our eyes. Meanwhile, the Selective Focus allows users to blur background objects and patterns, leaving the main subject of the photo focused and become the centre of attention, just as how a professional photographer would have shot it.
The GALAXY S5 also boosts faster network connectivity, with the most advanced 4G LTE performance. Zealous movie fans can now download their favourite movies faster than before. The new Download Booster function combines WiFi and LTE to boost data speed for faster upload and download, especially for large files like music, videos and images.
On top of that, the GALAXY S5 doubles as a fitness tool with a built-in heart rate sensor and an enhanced S Health app that serves as a personal fitness tracker, via tools such as a pedometer, diet and exercise records. It is akin to having your very own coach who monitors your diet and keeps track of your exercise records so that you are in good shape.
The GALAXY S5 is ready to take on the world, and equipped with vital tools to ensure that consumers can use the device with ease, be it rain or shine, coffee spill or even toilet accidents. An IP67 certification on the GALAXY S5 renders it dust and water-resistant up to 1 metre for 30 minutes, which offers a security blanket for consumers in moments of unavoidable minor accidents.
The Samsung GALAXY S5 retails for RM2,399 and is available in four colours – black, white, gold and electric blue – at all Samsung Experience Stores and authorised retailers.
