Yesterday we heard that Samsung had decided not to allow the mobile carriers in South Korea to sell the Samsung Galaxy S5 before its official launch date of the 11th of April.
The reason that the carriers wanted to launch the device early, was because a number of them will be banned from selling devices next month in South Korea, due to a recent government decision.
Now it would appear that SK Telecom has decided to start selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 on their network, and Samsung are not very happy about it, with a Samsung official saying that they are extremely puzzled with the carrier decision.
SK Telecom have said that they are putting their customers first, and allowing them to get the new Samsung Galaxy S5 before their sales ban comes into force on the 5th of April.
It will be interesting to see if Samsung decided to take any legal action against SK Telecom, as they are basically selling the Galaxy S5 before the handsets official launch.
A number of other carriers in South Korea are also in a similar position, and will shortly have sales bans come into force, they could possibly do the same as SK Telecom and also start selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 ahead of its official launch.
