Samsung Galaxy S5 Developer Edition to be launched by Verizon
As you probably already know, Samsung today launched its brand new Galaxy S5 around the world - in no less than 125 countries. But did you know that Samsung has a Galaxy S5 Developer Edition? Well, it does, and the handset is specifically made for Verizon Wireless (although this doesn’t necessarily mean that other carriers won’t get a Dev Edition, too).
Verizon’s Galaxy S5 Developer Edition, model number ET-G900VMKA, is listed at Samsung’s US website as “coming soon.” While Samsung doesn’t mention the differences between the Developer Edition and the regular Galaxy S5, it’s probably safe to assume that the former comes with an unlocked bootloader (like all other Developer Edition smartphones released until now). The rest of its features seem to be unchanged: Android 4.4.2 KitKat, 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, 16MP rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, etc.
There is no word on when the Galaxy S5 Developer Edition will go on sale. Its price is also unknown, though we’d venture to guess that it won’t cost more than $699 off contract.
It looks like the S5 Developer Edition will be available at Verizon only in black (while the regular model can be purchased in both black, and white).
