You can pre-order Galaxy S5 Neo in Germany for a mere €439. According to the German Online Retailer, the handset will ship on August 27. Liting has been around for a while now and is still live, so we guess we call it official.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo pretty much look like the original Galaxy S5, thugh, the only difference would be that it’s only coming in black variant. Protected by water and dust, as it has a certification of resistance. Offers a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED FHD (1080p) display, a capable 16MP primary camera with LED flash and of course a heart sensor on board. What exactly the Galaxy S5 Neo has is the fingerprint scanner and the 4K video recording, afterall. The USB 3.0 port became an uncovered Micro USB port, but it keeps the IP67 certification against dust and water damage.
Specs other than that, the S5 Neo carries a Snapdragon 801 chip for Samsung’s wn Exynos 7580 processor, which houses a total of eight Cortex-A53 cores, clocked in at 1.6GHz and paired with Mali-T720 GPU for better graphics. While the Galaxy S5 Neo connectivity supports better modem, allows you for LTE Cat.6 connection. Plus there is a better 5MP Selfie cam sensor on its front and FM Radio. The design of the phone looks slightly different because instead of the shiny band framing the smartphone, they used a matte finish on it. The location of the buttons is the same, and the fingerprint reader on the Home button makes a comeback as well as the heart-rate sensor on the back. It is paiired with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and with microSD card expansion, the smartphone packs a 2,800 mAh battery user-replaceable battery, just like in the previous model and the dimensions and weight are also the same and ships with Android 5.1 Lollipop ut of the box.
