Earlier this week, a fire broke out in a factory that produces PCBs for the Galaxy S5. It 287 firefighters to finally stop the fire after 6 hours - and it is estimated that over $1 billion in equipment and components has been destroyed.

The factory was contacted by Samsung to manufacture PCBs for the GS5, and this may delay Samsung's launch or hinder the initial production volumes. Samsung announced that it uses several sources for the PCBs and that the fire will not effect the production by a huge margin. Hopefully the company will be able to launch their new flagship on April 11 as promised.

Samsung's Galaxy S5 features a 5.1" FHD (432 PPI, Diamond Pixel most likely) Super AMOLED display, a 2.5 Ghz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16MP camera (4K video support). The GS5 is dust and water resistant, and it packs a finger scanner and a heart rate sensor.
