Samsung has insisted that the recent fire at a manufacturing plant will not impact the Galaxy S5’s rollout.

The fire at DAP Corporation in South Korea was detected on Sunday morning and caused around $1 billion in damage. 287 firefighters and 81 vehicles battled the blaze for six hours.

"We will do our utmost to help stabilise DAP Corporation's operations," Samsung said in a statement.

"In the meantime, we do not expect any production delays of the Galaxy S5, as we rely on multiple contractors."

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 at this year's Mobile World Congress.

The new flagship smartphone features a fingerprint scanner that can be used to authorise PayPal transactions online.
