Samsung Galaxy S5 to be available in mid-March, around two weeks after announcement on February 24
This coming Monday, on February 24, Samsung is going to announce the Galaxy S5, its latest flagship smartphone. We’ve known this for quite a while now, however there haven’t been many rumors or leaks pinning down when exactly we should expect it in stores.
The latest mumbling on the matter spoke of a release by the end of March, but today new info claims we’ll see it in the wild even sooner. Apparently the Galaxy S5 will be out in around three weeks from now. That means it should be in stores sometime around the week that starts on March 10 and ends on March 16.
This would be quite a few days before HTC even gets to unveiling its next high-end smartphone, the new One, on March 25 – so Samsung will have the spotlight all to itself during this period.
At the moment we don’t know how global the launch will be at first, but given Samsung’s past antics, we expect at least a few dozen countries will get the device at around the same time.
The information about the release time frame allegedly comes from two separate (but anonymous) sources who spoke to GSM Arena. We have no reason to doubt this because it makes a lot of sense – waiting more to get the Galaxy S5 in stores would simply allow all the hype and anticipation to die off.
