Samsung's newest flagship phone, the Galaxy S5
, was announced Monday at Mobile World Congress
in Barcelona, Spain. Metal body design? Nope. Eyepoppingly crisp 2K+ display? Nuh-uh

turned out to be more of an iteration on the Galaxy S line

, but the shiny new phone sports a sharp and bright 5.1-inch screen, a fingerprint sensor
, a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and a 16-megapixel camera.
