Here is what Phonedog says –

The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 5.1-inch 1920×1080 Super AMOLED display on its face, which is just a hair larger than the 5-inch 1080p panel found on the Galaxy S 4. Powering Samsung’s new Galaxy smartphone is a 2.5GHz quad-core processor that’s paired with 2GB of RAM and a 2800mAh battery. The Galaxy S5 comes with either 16GB or 32GB of storage built-in, but that can be supplemented with a microSD card up to 64GB in size.

Samsung says that one of the most important features of any smartphone today is its camera, and so the company chose to make the shooter on the Galaxy S5 is one of its tentpole features. The S5 sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with an autofocus speed of up to 0.3 seconds, HDR and a Selective Focus feature that allows the user to focus on one part of an image and blur out the rest. Also included is a 2.1-megapixel shooter on the Galaxy S5′s face.

But wait, there’s more! Samsung has packed its new Galaxy flagship to the gills with hardware features, including Cat 4 LTE for speeds up to 150Mbps, an IP67-rated body for resistance to dust and water and a new S Health 3.0 app with a built-in heart rate monitor and fitness tracking capabilities. The Galaxy S5 also includes a Finger Scanner biometric feature for added security and an Ultra Power Saving Mode that’ll turn the display black and white for those times when you need to stretch your battery as far as it’ll go.
