Golden smartphones are one of the latest inexplicable trends in the smartphone industry, and something like the Samsung Galaxy S5 will have to adhere to it in order to satisfy the market. The South Korean giant has hence announced the launch of its gold-colored flagship in the US through major carriers present in the country.
May 30 is the date on which these network providers will start offering this new version of the device. You can expect its price to remain the same, which is $99 if you go with a two-year contract and $699 sans it. And the components too will be the same beastly deal that they are in their white and black models.
The gold-colored Galaxy S5 will be made available in the US by AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular. And while it will even arrive tied to Verizon’s network, you won’t be able to purchase it directly through the said carrier. This means indirect retailers like Amazon and more will be the place to buy it.
