The three key features in Galaxy S5 are finger-print scanner, a heart-rate sensor and the new body that is water and dust proof. In the market, Galaxy S5 will go against the next generation of top end smartphones from Sony, LG, HTC and Apple. HTC has announced HTC One M8, which is likely to launch in April in India.
