Fancy Samsung Galaxy S5 Crystal Edition (with Swarovski crystals) will be launched in May

Fancy Samsung Galaxy S5 Crystal Edition (with Swarovski crystals) will be launched in May
Samsung’s older Galaxy S flagship smartphones, including the S4, all had Crystal Editions, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see that Samsung is getting ready to release a “Crystal Collection” for the new Galaxy S5.

Samsung Mobile Korea today posted a teaser video (embedded below) which reveals that the Galaxy S5 Crystal Edition will be introduced in May. This will have a rear case studded with Swarovski crystals - and that’s all we know about it. The video doesn’t allow us to see if the front of the handset has been modified. In any case, the smartphone’s internals are probably not going to be changed.

We’re assuming that this fancy Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available in Korea first, and that it’s going to be more expensive than the regular versions of the smartphone. Samsung will likely unveil more about this soon.

I hate glam additions..Ewww... If Sammy could do something about the front of their phones I would be more receptive to buying more of their products. It's like having a hot pink Porsche

The S5 is almost perfect for me, only 2 things that can make it perfect. 1.)A better quality material (a combination of stainless steel and rubber would be perfect). 2.)A More elegant design. (Design like the trio Wave would be perfect). Remember, it's just an opinion.

It would be nice if you could actually take the pains to read the article link you posted. 'we’re only hearing about this problem with the Verizon edition of the GS5, making us wonder if some of the carrier’s software fiddling' - Pocketnow At least, its not having problems with overheating: or it stains easily with all that 'premium' built material:

Exactly, well said tech2. The s5 has gone through extreme testing by samsung. There is no way they would release a phone without testing. We've sold around 30 S5's a day since launch in our small sales office and we only had 1 come back due to an out of box failure and that is excellent indeed.

ikr. He's spamming that link on every Samsung article. Its really funny how hollow one's life must be to post the same link over and over again on every Samsung article just to gain some attention. No wonder he likes to call himself poop. Because he's full of sh!t.

I've been having this problem occasionally with my Verizon GS3, except no other camera apps work until I restart my phone.
