Feature-packed Galaxy S5 scans prints, heart Video Transcript
Samsung lovers have been clamoring from the Samsung Galaxy S5 to really make a statement. But with this phone, Samsung plays it safe. I'm Jessica Dolcourt from CNET here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. I'm gonna give you a very quick tour. Now this phone has a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED Display that's 1080p full HD, not the 2k plus display about some people were hoping for. The design does come in four different colors. This is the electric blue color that I've got right now. It will also come in charcoal black, shivery white and a copper gold color. Now, not every market is going to get every color but it is nice to see this bright, vibrant shade. There's a bit of a different design element on the back. It kind of looks like small little depressions or dimples in the coating but it pretty much looks the same as the Galaxy S4 with these steep sort of silvery sides and just about the same shape. Now, there is a fingerprint scanner in here. It is integrated into this oblong home button here. There's also a heart rate monitor on the back that is integrated into this flash module. Paypal has an agreement with Samsung so that in addition to taking your heart rate, you can also use this as a way to make secure mobile payments. Samsung does bump up the camera to 16 megapixels on the back. There's front-facing camera as well. Inside you've got a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, that's Quad-Core. So, it's gonna be pretty speedy. The phone will also come in 16- gigabyte and 32-gigabyte capacities depending on the market. We don't have pricing availability or market yet but you can guess that it is gonna be world-wide and it will probably cost about the same as last year's model. So those looking for a really big splash with the Samsung Galaxy S5, you're not really gonna get it apart from the fingerprint scanner and the front and heart rate monitor in the back. Overall though, it does look like a nice phone, just not a lot of surprises. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET taking a look at the Samsung Galaxy S5, read our full impressions at cnet.com
