The Samsung Galaxy S5 officially launches on the 11th of April, the handset is already available in South Korea, after a number of mobile carriers decided to launch the handset ahead of Samsung’s official release.
Now according to a recent report, sales of the Samsung Galaxy S5 are off to a strong start in South Korea, and around 7,000 handsets are being sold each day.
At the moment in South Korea, only SK Telecom can sell devices to customers, this will change shortly, and LG U+ and KT are only allowed to sell devices to customers who have handsets older than two years or who have lost their device.
The carriers in South Korea have had restrictions placed on them by the South Korean government, this is what lead the carriers to start selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 ahead of Samsung’s official launch.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will go on sale in a range of countries on the 11th of April, demand for the handset is expected to be high when the device launches later this month.
