Samsung announced the introduction of a new smartphone on Monday at the Mobile World Congress event.
The Galaxy S5 smartphone will feature a sharper camera with quick auto focus, a heart-rate monitor and even a fingerprint sensor.
Samsung often hosts its own events to generate buzz about new products, but this time the Galaxy S5 was promoted at the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, Spain.
U.S. Wireless Advisory Leader Dan Hays told the Associated Press, “It's increasingly difficult to get attention for your mobile device in a very crowded marketplace.”
The new Samsung products boast a larger screen. Samsung Electronics Co. made it clear that they had more to offer than just smartphones. The company is also set to show an updated wearable tech device at the Mobile World Congress, according to Entrepreneur. In addition to the many new products, computerized wristwatches, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo also got a fresh look.
Samsung does a lot to promote their new products. Advertising expenditures amount to $4.3 billion over a 12-month time frame.
