Samsung launches Galaxy S5
Samsung unveiled its new flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone armed with a fingerprint scanner and a built-in heart rate sensor to defend its place as the world's industry leader.
The smartphone boasts a full high definition 5.1-inch screen, a 16-megapixel camera and, catching up with Apple, the home button doubles up as a fingerprint reader to unlock the device or to secure documents.
The phone has an extreme battery-saving mode that turns the display black-and-white and retains just six key applications.
To improve connections, it can combine a wifi signal and a mobile signal.
