Last week we heard that SK Telecom had started selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 in South Korea earlier than the handsets official launch date of the 11th of April.
Now it would appear that other mobile carriers have started doing the same thing in South Korea, which include KT and LG Uplus, we suspect Samsung will be less than pleased by this, and it could cause the company to launch the device earlier.
The reason that the various carriers in South Korea have decided to sell the Samsung Galaxy S5 earlier than they should, is because as of April, some of them will be banned from selling devices for a few weeks, which would mean that they would miss the S5 launch.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a quad core 2.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, the device is equipped with a 5.1 inch Full HD display that has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The Galaxy S5 also comes with 2GB of RAM and a choice of either 16GB or 32GB of included storage, there is also a microSD card slot that offers support for 128GB microSD cards.
Other specifications on the Samsung Galaxy S5 include a 2 megapixel camera up front and a 16 megapixel camera on the back, the device also comes with a new version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI and Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
There is no official word from Samsung on whether they have decided to start launching the Samsung Galaxy S5 earlier than its official launch date of the 11th of April.
