Now that the Samsung Galaxy S5 phone was announced on February 25, with lots of effective features, including Latest version Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS, 2.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 4K video recording, a 16-megapixel rear sensor camera, and many other features, it seems as if Galaxy S5 is having problems meeting these features by the promised launch date of April 11. Maybe that is why there is a delay in GS5 launching.

It is also being reported, the reason for delay is that, Samsung is facing problems with not having enough new camera modules to meet the worldwide demand. So can we assume that the 16 megapixel rear sensor camera seems to be threatening the releasing deadline of Galaxy S5? We must hope that GS5 will be released on its launching date!

It is believed that Galaxy S5 will be leading the Android smartphone sales right from its launching. Let’s find out, what is there in GS5:

Samsung Galaxy S5 is slightly bigger than its predecessors, 5.1-in screen with sharp 1080p display. The phone will have more unique features than its predecessors S3 and S4.

Galaxy S5 may include an iris scanner feature that is used to identify a person, based on patterns in the eye. This iris recognition technology can give a tough competition to the fingerprint scanner technology in Apple iPhone 5 and HTC One S-Max.

With the feel of the cover, you can also check your pulse rate with Galaxy S5 heart rate sensor just below the rear camera.

With all these advanced features, Galaxy S5 will be an amazing phone!
