Gold Samsung Galaxy S5 launching in the US on May 30 via all major carriers
Samsung just announced that the gold version of its Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone will be released in the US on May 30. Starting that day, you’ll be able to grab a golden S5 from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon. Apparently, the Verizon variant will be available only “through select indirect retailers”, so you might not find it in Verizon stores.

The gold Samsung Galaxy S5 should have the same price as the black and white versions that are already available to purchase: $199.99 on contract. Naturally, its features are unchanged, including Android 4.4 KitKat, a 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, fingerprint recognition sensor, heart rate monitor, 16MP rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, and a 2,800 mAh battery.

According to Samsung, the golden Galaxy S5 could make a “perfect gift” for new graduates, or for “the fashionable dad who wants to add a little swagger to his wardrobe” (since Father’s Day is coming up in mid-June). Well, if the gold S5 is for you, or for anyone close, now you know that it's coming soon.
