Samsung is teasing us repeatedly with the Samsung Galaxy S5 and its seems like it is packing quite a bit of fireworks. While it will most probably come with a sleek form factor and an Exynos Octa-core processor, here’s  some even more interesting news – The Samsung Galaxy S5 might come with an awesome camera along with exciting camera app and button.


Rumored details of the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone are increasing day by day, but this is one that we hope is true – the Samsung Galaxy S5 while have a dedicated camera button but not a physical one. Instead, it is said to have an ‘invisible’ camera button at the same place as the regular button. Samsung calls this technology ‘side touch’ indicating that this might just be a touch button on the side of the device. Sadly, this button might only work in landscape mode and you will have to depend on the camera app while using easy mode or recording video.

Other features of the camera include a 16-megapixel snapper at the back that will offer 4K video capture at 30 FPS and full HD video capture at 60 FPS.
