The Galaxy S5 has been officially announced at Mobile World Congress, Samsung revealed the new flagship at their unpacked event at the conference, revealing the most hyped device of 2014 and probably the biggest seller this year, unless Apple has something to say.

While the Galaxy S5 is a new evolution for Samsung, it does not look like the revolution in specs or design many were expecting. The metallic unibody, 2K display, octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and other specs are not here.

Instead, we have a dimpled soft touch leather back, coming in four colors, blue, white, black and gold. The gold looks more like a band-aid than a nice champagne like on the iPhone 5S, but Samsung has never been one for class on their smartphones.

Internally, the Galaxy S5 sports a 5.1-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 2800mAh battery, 16MP rear camera and WiFi ac and LTE-A.

The new Galaxy S5 does have a fingerprint sensor built into the home button, Samsung stealing one of Apple’s prized features from the iPhone 5S. The fingerprint sensor works on a swipe motion and users can pay for goods through PayPal, a nice bit of third party integration off the bat.

Samsung has also added a heart rate sensor underneath the camera, allowing users to check their heart rate and pulse in real time on the S Health application, which has also been redesigned for the Galaxy S5.

Overall, the Galaxy S5 is a small step in the right direction for Samsung, improving on the design and adding a nice feature list, even if the phone didn’t live up to the overwhelming hype train everyone decided to get on when hearing rumors about the device.
