Samsung S5

Samsung will introduce a new flagship S5 smartphone and an update to the Galaxy Gear Smartwatch at the Mobile World Congress show, February 24- 27, said The New York Times.

The S5 phone will include new Knox security software to make it more appealing to business users.

Samsung is also expected to forgo some of the gimmicky features found on the S4, said the report. Rumored features like an eye scanner for identifying the user will not appear in this version of the phone, said the Times. But the S5 will include a better camera and processor, it said.

While Samsung is a leading user of Android, it has also helped launch a new operating system called Tizen that will be shown at Mobile World Congress.  Other members of The Tizen Association include Intel, Huawei and Fujitsu.
