With the Galaxy S6 around the corner, Samsung reminds us that the S5 is "water resistant" and "irresistible"
Samsung is obviously very busy preparing the announcements of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, both of which will be officially unveiled next Sunday, on March 1. But the company didn't forget about its current Galaxy S flagship - the S5, which has been around since March 2014.

The short Galaxy S5 commercial that you're seeing below was aired last night on ABC, during the 87th Academy Awards ceremony. In the video, Samsung reminds us that the Galaxy S5 is dust-proof and water-proof (IP67-certified), while calling the smartphone "irresistible" and "designed to make a splash." That being said, it's not clear if the S6 will also be water-resistant.

Needless to say, Samsung still wants to sell many S5 units before the Galaxy S6 arrives (we do not know when the S6 will be available to buy, but we expect to see it hitting shelves later in March, or in April the latest). Right now, you can buy an unlocked Galaxy S5 in the US for less than $500. The question is, who's willing to get an S5, when the Galaxy S6 (plus different upcoming flagships from other companies) will be soon available?
