Couple of days ago, Samsung has launched its new flagship smart phone, the Galaxy S5 in Mobile World Congress 2014. Except that the S5 has a 5.1-inch, full HD Super AMOLED screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon, quad-core, 2.5GHz processor and a 16 megapixel camera with real-time HDR, more new features like heart-rate sensor, fingerprint scanner and water resistance really impressed its fans.
Built into the phone next to the camera flash, the heart-rate sensor can read a person’s heart rate while he holds his finger up to it for a few seconds. Though the technology isn’t new, it’s the first time we’ve seen it in a smart phone. It works by shining the phone’s LED light on your fingertip, letting the sensor detect the blood flow beneath the skin.
Similar to the iPhone 5S, the Galaxy S5 also has a fingerprint scanner built into the device’s home button. You can unlock the phone by swiping over it, but Samsung took it a step further; you can protect certain documents on the device with your fingerprint as well as confirm payments via PayPal simply by swiping your finger on the scanner.
Doesn’t afraid water
The Galaxy S5 is water and dust resistant to IP67 specifications, meaning it can be immersed in water up to 3 feet in depth. So users need not to worry if the phone touches water accidentally.
The Galaxy S5 won’t hit stores until April 11 in nearly 150 countries. It will be available in four colors: charcoal black, shimmery white, electric blue, and copper gold.
