New Samsung Galaxy S5 ad focuses on the 16MP camera and the IP67 certification
The latest ad produced by Samsung for its flagship Android phone, shows off the Samsung Galaxy S5's new 16MP camera, and the phone's IP67 certification. Perhaps sensing that the rear-facing camera could be the Achilles heel of its rival, the HTC One (M8), the Korean manufacturer goes right to the 16MP shooter on the back of the device to promote a faster auto-focus. The faster that your subject for a picture is in focus, the faster you can snap the shutter, which allows the user to "capture life in a blink."

The ad goes on to mention that the Samsung Galaxy S5 offers faster downloads, allowing the user to "download the world in an instant." And perhaps the most practical feature in the commercial is the IP67 certification. This allows the phone to be submerged for up to 1 meter (3.2 feet), for as long as 30 minutes, and emerge unscathed.

The ad shows a carefree Galaxy S5 owner watching the screen on his new pride and joy get covered with water. Instead of heading for the Rice A Roni (the ad was filmed in San Francisco, after all), our hero wipes the phone dry on his shirt, and is good to go.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 launches today in approximately 150 countries.
