Verizon reminds customers that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is coming, compares it to the S4 and S III

Just in case some of its customers didn’t know, Verizon today reaffirmed that it would launch Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 smartphone. While the carrier didn’t say exactly when it will start selling the handset, this is probably going to happen on April 11.

Until then, Verizon wanted to present the differences between the new S5 and the Galaxy S4 and S III models in a post over at its Insider's Guide blog. Of course, for that you should also check out our Galaxy S5 vs. Galaxy S4 post from MWC 2014.

Verizon points out that the S5 comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, a larger display (5.1-inch, 1080p), a larger battery (2,800 mAh), a new 16MP rear camera, heart rate monitor, S Health, and other novelties - all in a dust- and water-resistant case. For now, Verizon is showing only the white and black variants of the S5, but that doesn't necessarily mean it won't have other colors (like blue or gold) in its lineup.

We still don’t know how much the Samsung Galaxy S5 will cost in the US. In any case, not more than $200 on contract is probably a good guess.

You are right, is the only color that I don't think it looks so awful, maybe a black model as well.

make sure you close the door tight when leaving. Samsung has been producing "ugly" phones for the past 3 years and they are kicking every oem's butt when it comes to sales, so your trolls mean nothing to them.

Note 4 will probably have a fake leather, band aid rear.

$299 on contract is a better guess.

No wait! The phone will still outsell iphones, G2, G3, Z2, and other flagships out there.
ouch! That hurts.

Lol, this phone isn't ugly. And I don't see what's so bad about it either. If it's not to your taste, that's fine, but many of you trolls like to vehemently remind us that you hate Samsung so much. But guess what? We don't care, the 10s of millions of people that buy this each year, don't care; Samsung doesn't care because they're making more money than any of your beloved OEMs - who don't care about you either lol.

The likes of Sony, HTC, Microsoft and such would rather be making more money than acknowledge random and obnoxious praise from a minuscule user base of people that are so insignificant to their bottom line lol.
