Yesterday we heard a rumor that Samsung were considering launching the Samsung Galaxy S5 in South Korea early, the rumor said that the handset would be available earlier than expected with SK Telecom.
The apparent reason for the early launch was that SK Telecom, and a number of other carriers in the country have to stop selling handset between the 5th of April and the 19th of May, after a recent ruling by the South Korean government.
Now Samsung has confirmed to the media in South Korea that the handset will not be sold early in the country, instead it will go on sale as originally planned.
This means that the new Samsung Galaxy S5 will go on sale in South Korea on the 11th of April, at the same time it launches globally.
Customers in South Korea may not be able to buy the device at launch from the various mobile carriers, as they are banned from signing up new customers and selling handsets.
