Samsung drops a new teaser video for Galaxy S5 ahead of Monday's reveal

Samsung is about to drop the official news about the Galaxy S5 smartphone in a few days, but today the company is teasing the world with a quick new video to prepare everyone for the announcement, which is expected to be made on Monday.

The video itself is one of those montage clips with images of people doing, well, stuff that doesn't show anyone using a smartphone in any way. The images have words in the foreground like "speed", "alive", "wet" and more, and all of them have the number "5" placed next to them.

In other words, it's a teaser that tries to set a mood, rather than say anything about the Galaxy S5 itself. Thankfully, the Internet rumor machine has been doing a lot of work on that front already. Some reports claim that the S5 will have a fingerprint sensor, while others have leaked images of a flatter user interface; the S5 could have a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 2560x1440.

All of the rumors and speculation should be put to bed on Monday when Samsung holds its Unpacked press event at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona; the Galaxy S5 could go on sale by the end of February.

Let me guess. Everyone should buy a Windows Phone because its feature are always useful?

speak for yourself... i bet for the monkeys even a pen has too many useless features...

Well i just got me the lg g2 verizion and could not be happeier it i think suites needs of everyone means that it has 5.2in 1080p display 2gb of ram topline snapdragon so the gs5 with type display is abit much i think.

I went with the Nexus 5 instead of the G2 (though they are pretty close to being the same) and couldn't be happier. I love Samsung phones, just sick of both the manufacturer and carrier bloat added in them.

nexus 5 is great phone i would imagine but i went G2 cause i am on Verizion and it only cost me $99 so i will not complain and so far the phone is just so damn good

That's exactly how I feel for every Apple release!

This is how I feel for every Windows Phone release. You see, it's why we have options. Some phones aren't for everyone.

Phone looks good. Waiting to see what they add to the Note 4 this year. I'm itching to upgrade my iPhone 5s and Note 3.

so you had those devices for less than 6 months and you are itching to upgrade?

Correct! Technology makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. I've worked hard to get where I am financially, and tech toys and cars are one of the ways I reward myself. :-)

Technology makes us all feel like kids, and of course each one is responsible for their financial decisions. No judging there.

I was more onto inquiring if your current devices are that bad, because otherwise the improvement would be negligible unless there's a breakthrough in terms of battery or screen quality (keeping in mind that going from 440ppi to 600 is just placebo).
For CPU and GPU processing we are already at a point where technology is way more advanced than the software that could make use of it.

Good points gonchucki.

they already offered the gold version (infact two of them) in S4 as well. However, it was restricted to the middle east market only.

Looks like they're going to do another stupid performance that has nothing whatsoever to do with the phone itself.

Their events are just like their devices - cluttered with crap.

That said, I still think the Galaxy devices are formidable devices.

Looks awesome, but I already find it hard to read some websites with images formatted for 1080p

the images are too small already for such screen, they were normally displayed at lest on 10+ inch screens! even higher resolution is going to make it impossible to see image posts in forums (for example the funny image thread here)

Everything else is an improment, but the higher res has reached its pick..
(i do prefer 1080p to 720p on the phone, but seriously... that is enough)

I am happy with my old dumb phone. I don't need to be always online on tiny screen. The data gouging by telcoms here are more than enough to say no to any kind of smartphone service. Others who can't live without internet, I will say keep going.

Based upon the actual years of release and what else was comparable at the time, I thought the S2 was light years ahead of the field in features, design, and power.
I'm hoping the S5 can deliver this experience also, as I'm 2 months away from end of contract, and my choices are open and wide.
