Samsung S5 Teardown: Loaded With Sensors

Samsung's Galaxy S5 has the next-version Exynos processor and SuperAMOLED display. See what else is under the smartphone's hood.

Announced at Mobile World Congress, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is the latest evolution of the Korean electronics manufacturer’s market-leading Android-based device.

TechInsights' Teardown.com got its hands on one of the early-release versions. We were excited when we found ours contained Samsung’s latest version of its Exynos processor, the Exynos 5422 with its 1.6-Ghz 8-core architecture. This processor replaces the Exynos 4412 we found in our teardown of the Galaxy S4 and has 4 ARM Cortex A15 cores and 4 ARM Cortex A7 cores.

Sensors
So, now phones are coming with heart rate sensors? That's interesting.

But unlike PCs, smartphones are set to become contextual devices. They will be able to help people augment their daily lives. The only way to do this, however, is to load up mobile devices with sensors.

I have some trepidation about this in terms of privacy issues over the long run, but the path of technology means that sensors are inevitable.
