For the love of expandable memory and removable battery: Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo has been released
Over the last weekend, the whole industry was heated up with news from Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge plus’ launching. For me, it was sad to hear people saying how they loved the specs and “premium” aluminum design on both phones. Nobody gave a damn about the small guys like me: People who wanted a new flagship with removable battery and expandable storage (and please keep your metal — team plastic for the win!).
Well well well, Samsung cared. While the whole fanfare was going on, the Korean tech giant quietly rolled a 2015 reincarnation of their 2014 flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S5. A German retailer is already offering the aforementioned device on sale.
Talk about specs, the new Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo has everything on your regular Galaxy S5 – including a microSD card slot, dust and water resistance and a polycarbonate back cover that reveals the phone’s removable battery when popped off– but comes with a 1.6GHz octa-core CPU and runs on the new Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS instead.
The Galaxy S5 Neo handset sports an Exynos 7580 chipset and shares a 2GB RAM, 5.1″ 1080p display and 2,800mAh battery with the regular S5. The handset was listed with a 439-euro price tag and the said retailer promised to start shipping by the 27th of August but we expect Samsung to make mention of the phone’s global availability before then.
