The Samsung Galaxy S5 will soon be released into the market and much is expected by the company in terms of sales, after the Galaxy S4 did not do well. The device is expected to offer a bit more innovation and intuitiveness to the consumer. Two features expected to be seen on the S5 are previewed below.
The app symbols will feature a superscript 5 after it, keeping the S5 theme going. The app icons will have a flat and more colorful design when compared with that seen on other Smartphones from Samsung. Specifically there are Outdoor and Fitness icons included suggesting that the company is planning to maintain its “life companion” mantra. Along with the addition of brand new app icons, Samsung is also packing into the S5 an app launcher.
The Galaxy S5 will possibly feature the company’s foray into contextual understanding, and it will be heavily based on precisely what you are doing. This feature is not a sensor-based context feature as can be found on the Moto X. Not only will the phone monitor how and where you are using your phone through sensors, but also the new software from Samsung could make note of which apps you are using and what you are typing. This stored information will make it easier for predictions to be made by certain apps based on your behavior. So by simply keeping track of which apps you frequently use and the terms you search for, a video service can automatically pull up music videos about your favorite artiste.
Many expect the Samsung Galaxy S5 to come with a fingerprint scanner to unlock the phone and certain of its features, but some seem to believe that biometrics will be the way the company will go. Reports are that the idea of biometrics may be far away from reality on Smartphones. Rumors have surfaced that chances are, at least a section of the screen will be fingerprint scanner enabled. So there might be ‘hot corners’ that will allow users to log into the phone with little or no effort. Whichever way the company goes, it would be a good decision as competitors are making waves using similar features.
For ease of use and security reasons these features would be great additions to the Samsung Galaxy S5 phone and the company would be well advised to ensure they are there if they want to boost sales.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Unlocking
Many carriers are going to subsidize the price of this phone for you, but the cost of that is going to be a 2 year contract and a Galaxy S5 that’s locked to a particular carrier. If you find yourself in that situation, don’t worry, you can easily unlock the Galaxy S5 via IMEI unlock code. You can buy the same factory unlock code that you would get from the carrier from the two sites below:
