It really is nothing out of the norm to see new technology. But, there very few times when a new device emerges that we are actually excited about. Albeit, the name of the product definitely helps, there are usually more than enough releases to hold us over till "The Big One" comes out at whatever time it scheduled. Recently we saw the Mobile World Congress event unfold, and while there were quite a few releases that we were all excited for, there was one that had everyone's attention. The release of the new Samsung Galaxy S5 has had rumors circulating about it for a while now, but it was finally released at the Unpacked 5 Event at the Mobile World Congress.
Samsung also released two new successors to the Galaxy Gear; The Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo. They also have now gotten into the fitness band area with the new Gear Fit. Needless to say, Samsung was not holding back at this years event.
The Galaxy S5 had a multitude of different rumors being spread about it. Some of these held up, while others were merely wishful thinking. For example, the highly anticipated 4K screen is actually a Full HD Super AMOLED 5.1 inch screen. Still not bad, but not 4K like everyone was expecting. However, this may be better as studies have shown that you wouldn't even be able to tell the difference in clarity when it comes to smaller screens, especially at closer distances. Don't think that just cause the 4K screen wasn't delivered though, that this new smartphone isn't working with some heavy ammunition. The bad boy is coming stock with QualComm Snapdragon, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, and a quad-core 2.5GHz processor. The phone also comes in a 16 or 32 gig storage model, along with a 2,800mAh battery. Obviously the S5 is stacked in terms of hardware, but there are a few other features as well.

The biggest features that have been talked about are the water and dust resistance. That's right! The new S5 can be submerged in water up to 3 feet and still be in perfect working condition. The dust and water resistance are good up to the IP67 specifications. Next lets talk about the fingerprint scanner. Much like the iPhone 5S, the fingerprint scanner is built into the home button. The phone can be unlocked by swiping your finger over the scanner, but Samsung added another nifty feature. The same fingerprint scanning security can be utilized for specific documents that you may want to stay protected on your phone.
It is a pretty safe bet to say that Samsung's new Galaxy S5 was the one thing that everyone was excited for this year.There is not a release date for retail stores, or a price set, but we can expect to see this in the near future. Overall this phone looks to be quite the little powerhouse in terms of what it can. The hardware looks incredible, the waterproof feature is perfect for clumsy people like myself, and here is to hoping the fingerprint scanner holds up better than the iPhone 5S's did.
