Samsung Galaxy S5 Developer Edition available now (only on Verizon)
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Developer Edition that we first told you about last month is now available to buy in the US. Unfortunately, this is a Verizon-only version, and we don’t know if Samsung is planning to release an S5 Developer Edition for other carriers.
Anyway, the Galaxy S5 Developer Edition is offered off-contract, and costs $599.99 - just like the regular variant. The handset should have an unlockable bootloader out of the box. Other than that, it doesn’t appear to be different from the S5 that was released around the world on April 11. So customers will get the same 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, 16MP rear camera, fingerprint scanner, heart rate monitor, quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,800 mAh battery.
The Galaxy S5 Developer Edition can be purchased online at Samsung’s website (see the source link below). Only a black variant is available for now, free shipping included. Verizon doesn’t seem to offer the smartphone via its own website, and there is no word if it’s going to do it at a later date.
