Earlier last week Samsung had it’s Unpacked 5 event at MWC where is announced and showed off its newest flagship device, the Galaxy S5, and its new wearables – the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit. The event went over some of the new tech’s features and uses, but if you missed out or don’t remember, Samsung wants to refresh your memory in a couple of 4-minute videos.
Outed on their official YouTube channel this morning, Samsung released two separate promos for the Galaxy S5 and for the new Gears. Each video simply goes over the hardware in each devices as well as some of the more highlighted features of each. Luckily these won’t take an hour to view, only about 4 minutes per video and really show you what Samsung will be pushing over the upcoming months.
In the video for the Galaxy S5 you will see that Samsung has opted to focus on 4 main features of the S5. The first, obviously being the hardware of the phone (screen size, textured back, etc). The next 3 features are what really differentiate it between the S4: Camera quality and features, fingerprint scanner, and health and fitness activities (including the heart rate scanner).
For the video involving the Gear lineup you’ll see that even though Samsung mentions a few other areas involving the wearable devices they really focus on 3 things. The first, of course, are the hardware features including the camera (on the Gear 2), changeable straps, etc. The other two are the ability to interact with communications/notifications and the health and exercise features.
These videos might not show you every little thing that you can do with the S5 or the Gears but it shows you what Samsung is focusing on. Do these promos make you more interested in Samsung’s latest devices or are you unimpressed?
