The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Samsung Electronics Philippines Corp. (SEPCO) has announced the fifth generation of the Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S5, designed for what matters most to consumers.

The new Galaxy S5 offers consumers a refined experience with innovation of essential features for day-to-day use.

“With the Galaxy S5, Samsung is going back to basics to focus on delivering the capabilities that matter most to our consumers,” said Coco Domingo, SEPCO’s product marketing head for IT and mobile.

“Consumers are looking for mobile tools that inspire and support them as they improve their everyday lives. The Galaxy S5 represents an iconic design with essential and useful features focused on delivering a heightened smartphone experience,” Domingo added.

The Galaxy S5 combines an advanced camera, fast network connectivity, dedicated fitness tools, and enhanced device protection features as consumers stay fit and connected in style.

Capture the moments that matter

Capturing and saving precious memories is one of the most important smartphone features today. The new Galaxy S5 offers superior camera functionality, featuring a 16-megapixel camera with an enhanced menu and user interface that allow consumers to effortlessly take, edit and share photos.

The Galaxy S5 is equipped with fast autofocus speed of only 0.3 seconds and an advanced High Dynamic Range (HDR), feature that reproduces natural light and color similar to how the human eye captures images.

Also, the new Selective Focus feature allows users to focus on a specific area of an object while simultaneously blurring out the background and vice versa. With this capability, consumers no longer need a special lens kit to create a shallow depth of field (DOF) effect.

Tap into the fastest connections

The Galaxy S5 offers a new technology in connectivity utilizing LTE and Wi-Fi to ensure blazing fast data speeds for unrivaled media consumption and productivity. With its MIMO (multi-input, multi-output) technology, downloading data allows for both LTE and Wi-Fi to work simultaneously to speed up data transfers. Plus, the Galaxy S5 supports a number of LTE frequencies with LTE Category 4 standard. No matter where a consumer is, the Galaxy S5 will help ensure they have the fastest connection available in the area.

Be more fit and active

With the enhanced S Health 3.0, the new Galaxy S5 offers more tools to help people stay fit and well. It provides a comprehensive personal fitness tracker to help users monitor and manage their wellness, along with additional tools, including a pedometer, diet and exercise records, and a new built-in heart rate monitor.

Galaxy S5 users can further customize their experience with an enriched third-party app ecosystem and the ability to pair with the next-generation Gear products for real-time fitness coaching.

Express modern, glam look

The Galaxy S5 blends iconic Samsung design with modern trends to appeal to a range of consumer tastes and interests. The Galaxy S5 features a perforated pattern on the back cover creating a modern glam look. Its new sleek, contoured shape comes in an array of vivid colors, including charcoal black, shimmery white, electric blue and copper gold, to complement the style of the individual consumer.

Essential device protection

The Galaxy S5 is IP67-certified, which means it’s dust- and water-resistant (of up to one meter for 30 minutes). It also offers a Finger Scanner, providing a secure, biometric screen locking feature. The Ultra Power Saving Mode turns the display to black and white, and shuts down all unnecessary features to provide the consumer with up to 12 days of battery life.
