BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Samsung's newest smartphone will have an unusual new feature -- a built-in heart rate monitor -- as the Korean electronics company tries to turn its devices into lifestyle products.
The Galaxy S5 also has a larger screen than its predecessor, at 5.1 inches, instead of five inches, and a sharper camera, with a resolution of 16 megapixels, up from 13 megapixels.
Samsung Electronics Co. is also unveiling a fitness band, Gear Fit, to complement two new computerized watches announced Sunday.
Samsung, the world's largest smartphone maker, made the latest announcement during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
