Samsung touts fingerprint sensor in Galaxy S5, set for launch at mobile gathering
(02-20 12:12)

Samsung aims to satisfy the demands of smartphone junkies Monday by almost certainly unveiling a new Galaxy S5 smartphone. It is said to feature a fingerprint scanner and larger screen.
The Korean smartphone maker told journalists about an “Unpacked 5'' event for the opening day of the February 24-27 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
“We are holding a global launch event of our new flagship product in 2014,'' its invitation said.
Samsung sold 300 million smartphones last year, 31 percent of the nearly one billion sold globally and double archrival Apple Inc's 15.6-percent share, according to US technology research house Gartner Inc.
The Galaxy S5 is said to have a fingerprint scanner on the home button; a 5.24-inch, full high-definition display; a water and dust-proof case and a 16 megapixel camera.
At the same time, the industry anticipates that Samsung will reveal the latest, possibly thinner, version of its smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear 2, after the first version failed to win over many critics.—AFP
