The new Samsung Galaxy S5 has seen the light last Monday. From  the huge list of specs, it seems like an interesting device to have. One of the most impressive features is the in-built heart rate sensor.  The trick with this feature is that you can measure your heart rate by putting the finger below the camera on the back, where the sensor is placed.

The Health Agency from South Korea is so delighted by this new feature that they want to consider and designate the Samsung Galaxy  S5 as “medical equipment”. An official from the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety mentioned that Samsung  can launch the device when it’s planned regardless the decision made by the review board.

“Even if it is designated as a medical device, the procedure for testing its safety and functions is not complicated.”

In addition to this innovative feature, S5 comes with a few another interesting features. One is the fingerprint sensor, with which you can secure you device. A 16 MP camera sensor that can shoot 4k videos and a enhanced battery  saving feature.  The device will be launched on April 11th and will be available in 150 countries, in the major carriers stores.
