Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S smartphones top the 200 million milestone

We're here at Mobile World Congress and the Samsung Unpacked 5 event is currently in progress. While we've already seen Samsung announce the Galaxy S5 smartphone, as well as the Gear 2 and Gear Fit, there was also a bit more talk coming from JK Shin. To that point, he mentioned a rather large number -- 200 million.

Samsung Galaxy S5 hands-on

We knew the Samsung Galaxy S5 was coming, but in its fifth iteration as flagship of the company's Android range, we weren't quite sure whether the Galaxy range had lost its shine.

If you’ve stayed away from upgrading a new phone based on pricing, you might not have to with the S5.

Galaxy S5 ‘confirmed’ with fingerprint scanner on home button

If you were anticipating a fingerprint sensor for the Galaxy S5, you might be in luck. The inclusion of a fingerprint sensor has reportedly been ‘confirmed’, with the sensor finding a home on the front of the device.
