Galaxy S5 screenshots suggest support for Android RunTime

40 sec read

Android 4.4 KitKat brought a major new feature that most users might not have come across yet. It came with a new runtime called ART or simply, Android Runtime. Since the early days Android has relied upon the default Dalvik runtime. Even though ART is currently in an experimental stage, the primary aim is to tweak it further to enhance app performance even more. A new image has surfaced online hinting at the possibility of Galaxy S5 ART support.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is known to come with a lot of eye catching features like the fingerprint scanner, heart rate monitor and the ISOCELL based camera. Today we learn that the handset will also come with support for ART (Android RunTime), which essentially means that apps will load faster than usual. The leaked screenshot you see above further reveals that the Galaxy S5 will allow users to manually switch between Dalvik and ART architectures, so it appears to be an experimental project, much like Google did with the Nexus 5. This is great news for developers as Android is slowly making the switch to ART, thus providing a better experience to the users.
