Its Samsung Galaxy S5 day, and the brand new flagship from the Korean manufacturer is finally available for purchase. The Galaxy S5 made its official debut back in February and will be joined by the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit on shelves in 125 countries around the world.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is one of the biggest smartphones of 2014, and will be widely available in the US across Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, MetroPCS and US Cellular. Customers in Europe will be able to get their Galaxy S5 from EE along with other carriers and retailers.
The Galaxy S5 comes with a 5.1 inch Super AMOLED full 1080p HD display, a top of its class camera, the latest Snapdragon quad-core processor and a vastly improved TouchWiz user interface. Samsung has even added value to the handset with a finger print scanner, heart rate monitor and IP67 dust and water resistance certification.
In addition to launching the regular ol’ Galaxy S5, Samsung today outed a special version of its new flagship. A new listing on the company’s official website has revealed a Galaxy S5 Developer Edition for Verizon. The Galaxy S5 Developer Edition features the same specs as the normal Galaxy S5, but it’s likely that this model will include an easily-unlockable bootloader to make it simpler to tinker with the phone and load up custom ROMs. There’s no word yet on when the Verizon Galaxy S5 Developer Edition will actually launch or how much it’ll cost when it does.
