Carriers in Antarctica launch the Samsung Galaxy S5 ahead of schedule
An anonymous user stationed at South Korea's King Sejong Research Station in Antarctica told us that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is already shipping to various settlements across the frozen continent, almost ten days ahead of the scheduled April 11 launch date.
Refusing to cite concrete evidence for fear of being traced and forced to shovel snow naked in the minus spring temperatures, our tipster pointed at Argentinian carriers Claro and Movistar, which operate GSM networks for Argentina's Antarctic bases, as the culprits. The two telecoms, our source claims, received limited numbers of Galaxy S5 units from Samsung to organize a launch event for Antarctica, but the continent's prominent lack of advertising channels pressured them to start selling the flagship smartphone ahead of schedule.
Samsung declined to comment on the news, dismissing it is a mere April Fools' joke.
