Samsung Takes Everything to the Fifth Power in Galaxy S5 Teaser

The Samsung Galaxy S5 will arrive on Monday, February 24 at an Unpacked event taking place in Barcelona, Spain, and this is is Samsung’s teaser. Since this is the fifth version of their flagship Galaxy S line, they are taking everything to the fifth power in this 36-second spot.

Words flash across the screen like Together, Explorer, Curiosity, Dad, Peace, Wet, Free, Family, Victory, Connect, Party, Create, Alive, Standout, Social, Outdoor, Moment, Brothers, Courage, Play, Concert, Hangout, Ride, Selfie, Flip, Talent, Dream, Speed, Fit, Fun, Humor, Style, You, and Life. In other words, this is the phone for everything you do in life, from participating in water sports to riding a bike to partying like a rockstar to being a dad. 

Ready for Monday?

  • preeth manu

    It really looks like a big and wide S2….the international S2…

  • Noble Star

    The wet thing, it might be waterproof ? 😀

    • Tim242

      That’s the rumor. Supposedly, there’s an underwater shot mode in the camera.

      • LionStone

        I read somewhere that they are using a water resistant antennae? Will have better reception too.

  • STEV3

    I’m kinda worried about this S5 and S5 Prime stuff. Are both of them coming to the US? Is the Prime coming later? Definitely confused. Definitely want whatever one comes with a 2K display. Monday needs to be here like now.

    • ChristianPasquariello

      I’m tired of the hype just release it already.

  • Blue Sun

    Does it come with TW lag to the fifth power?

    • Simpsons Did It

      If Samsung built a battery that ran on the tears of jelly DL readers and editors they could run their phones forever.

    • MeBWhatever

      Yep, because my Note 3 has sooooo much lag (and by soooo much, i mean absolutely NONE!). So piss off you git!

  • Synacks

    That one variant likely won’t be called the S5 Prime. Remember the Galaxy Nexus? That was codenamed Nexus Prime prior to launch.

  • 213ninja

    instead of an “active” version, hopefully all s5’s will have the “active” features…..

    • Aram⚡

      Thats what I meant lmao. I was referencing the S4 Active.

  • AngryBadger

    So will the battery life be to the 5th power as well? 😉

    • Samsungle_Inc

      5h of WET usage.
      BTW: 0:13 “outdoor” is Galaxy S5?

  • Epic Tea

    Samsung’s Marketing is getting better and better as well as their phones and software touchwiz use to be horrible its not as bad anymore.

    • cizzlen

      Pretty sweet commercial. Actually it is Lykke Li. Can’t go wrong with her 😉

  • pd240

    Definitely picking this phone up when it comes out on Verizon.

  • Trent Russell

    I think if this phone has a big enough battery it’s going to have quite a bit of shelf life. My Note 2 is more powerful than i need for any task i’ve thrown at it, but with that sort of horsepower and battery life in combination with a great screen and stellar camera, i’m definitely looking forward to the S5.

  • JBartcaps

    How does one live life to 5th power? Enlighten me

    • Nexoduss

      Take everything you do and multiply it by itself 5 times haha. Things are about to get crazzzzzyyyyy

    • Nexoduss

      I’m sure this will lead to obesity because some people are gonna think, for example, that if you eat 2 Hamburger now, once you get an s5 you’ll need to eat 32 in order to satisfy samsung. 🙂

    • The Narrator
      • Joey Sandoval

        Samsung Galaxy SV aka tiger juice

  • jnt

    0:13 – the S5?? (I’m sure not, but still…)

    • The Narrator

      Probably not, looks just like the S4.

      • Adrynalyne

        Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean much, LOL.

        • The Narrator

          I should have known that . Hahaha

      • Craig

        If it looks just like the S4 it probably is the S5. 😛

      • YEMan0443

        But the S4 is not sand proof. Has to be S5. Sand^5

    • MichaelFranz

      Might be right, It looks more square then rounded edges. Who knows. it does kind of look like the one render i saw of the S5

  • Jprime

    I thought “life companion” was so corny

  • Kevin Henry

    is anyone picking up from this trailer that the phone might be water resistant and support the same type of slow motion features as the IPhone?

    • The Narrator

      I hope they learned what the difference between resistant and proof is.

      • The Narrator

        Because it needs to be at least resistant to me wetting my pants every time someone says something good about Samsung.

    • Tim242

      The S4 and Note 3 already support slow motion video.

      • Kevin Henry

        Well it does but when you actually record in slow motion the quality of the video looks like crap compared to that of the 5s to be honest

      • LionStone

        And the HTC DNA before that 🙂

        • Tim242

          Ahhh, I didn’t know that. Doesn’t surprise me though. I tried it on some HTC phone, but can’t remember which one.

        • hot_spare

          And Samsung Wave way back in 2010 🙂

  • The Narrator

    If they are gonna advertise this stuff, i hope they offer something similar to HTC, or it’s gonna be the S4 Active on a global scale.

  • Aram⚡

    Seems like a very “ACTIVE” phone. Drops mic walks out.

    • Jim890

      Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S5 Prime!

      • 213ninja

        nice bezels.

        • Jim890


        • The Narrator

          Large bezels.

        • LionStone

          Their squarish camera lens bezel always bugs me… camera lens are ROUND!

      • Aram⚡

        Hopefully they launch together. My Droid Razr Maxx circa 2011 is ready to be retired.

        • RAZR_FANN

          Mine too! Ready to get rid of it but waiting for the opportune moment.

          • michael arazan

            I hope this time the GPE S5 will release on all carriers, and keep samsung’s camera software.

      • Aram⚡

        Also, this is also a bit doctored, where is the speaker grill?

        • Jim890

          Bottom of the phone, just like on the note 3.

          • Aram⚡

            I meant to say the earpiece.

          • Justin W

            Top of the phone – on the black version it’s the silver piece.

        • michael arazan

          And the Home Button doesn’t look like a finger print scanner

      • mark

        Its Spigen’s mockup. Here’s the black which has the home button included…


    • Rocky

      Holding out for the 5.5″ iphone 6 in a few months. Superior cpu/gpu and user experience

      • MeBWhatever

        Said the tardo…

      • ChristianPasquariello

        Lol! Superior CPU. Made by…….Samsung.

  • EricMayBell

    I really hope you don’t disappoint Samsung. I want to see some originality and true innovation with the S5. Competition moves everything forward

    • PoisonApple31

      Samsung will bring it once Apple does – and Apple hasn’t in years.

  • Carlos Lopez

    What if monday came around and they didn’t reveal the s5

    • Tim242

      Stop all that cussin’

    • Guest

      Maybe then HTC will have a chance to sell some phones?
