Galaxy S5 releasing on April 11 in 150 countries
Now that the official Galaxy S5 announcement is out of the way, Samsung is talking numbers. The Galaxy S5 will be available starting April 11 in 150 countries, with the device set to work on “every major carrier” around the globe. In the U.S., Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile will carry the device, with no word of a Verizon version yet. Across the pond in the U.K., EE, Three and Vodafone UK will offer the device. UK-based retailers like Phones4u and Carphone Warehouse will also stock the device in their outlets.
Pricing information for the Galaxy S5 isn’t available yet, but it should be forthcoming as we get closer to the release date. It is also likely that most carriers will offer a Galaxy S5 + Gear 2 or Gear 2 Neo bundle. The Galaxy S5 itself comes loaded with a host of new features, like a hybrid autofocus camera with the fastest camera shutter to be included on a mobile device, heart rate sensor and a fingerprint scanner along with IP67 certification.
