VIDEO: Galaxy S5 Features: 4 Camera
The camera has become one of the biggest selling points on smartphones, and manufacturers everywhere are trying to win on technology and features wherever possible. The Galaxy S5 debuts with a 16MP camera sensor, up from 13MP in the previous generation. While this feature isn’t itself a groundbreaking development, the real interesting changes are happening in software this time around. The Galaxy S5 is going to sport a fast autofocus technology, letting users focus on their subjects in a paltry 300 milliseconds, which Samsung claims is the fastest of any phone camera in the world. Users will also be able to shoot in 4K UHD at 30 frames per second, and take advantage of the new HDR mode, which will provide deeper, richer color and better contrast, as well as better exposure management, which will happen on the fly, in tandem with the autofocus. And finally, the camera will feature a selective focus mode, letting you automatically blur the background — if you so choose — after you’ve taken the photo. We’re very curious to see some real-world photo samples, as these features seem very interesting, but we’re going to need to see more to decide if Samsung has a big win on their hands in this department or not. Next up, we’re looking at the display and the battery performance improvements.
