Galaxy S5 Video

It looks like Samsung has taken a page or two out of Sony’s playbook with its upcoming Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone. The world’s top smartphone vendor on Friday released a “trailer” video for its upcoming Mobile World Congress press conference on Monday and in it, Samsung teased a number of Galaxy S5 features. The most intriguing among them are almost certainly water-resistance, which Samsung teased with the word “wet,” and dust-resistance, which was hinted at with the word “outdoor” hovering above a couple as they lay in the sand.

The Galaxy S5 is expected to feature a 5.25-inch Super AMOLED display, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor or an 8-core Exynos chipset depending on the model, a 16-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, a huge 3,000 mAh battery, an integrated infrared blaster, support for 4G LTE data speeds of up to 150Mbps, and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Samsung’s new flagship phone will be unveiled during a press conference on Monday and BGR will be providing live coverage of the event.

The Galaxy S5 teaser video is embedded below.
