Verizon reminds customers that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is coming, compares it to the S4 and S III

Just in case some of its customers didn’t know, Verizon today reaffirmed that it would launch Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 smartphone. While the carrier didn’t say exactly when it will start selling the handset, this is probably going to happen on April 11.

Until then, Verizon wanted to present the differences between the new S5 and the Galaxy S4 and S III models in a post over at its Insider's Guide blog. Of course, for that you should also check out our Galaxy S5 vs. Galaxy S4 post from MWC 2014.

Verizon points out that the S5 comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, a larger display (5.1-inch, 1080p), a larger battery (2,800 mAh), a new 16MP rear camera, heart rate monitor, S Health, and other novelties - all in a dust- and water-resistant case. For now, Verizon is showing only the white and black variants of the S5, but that doesn't necessarily mean it won't have other colors (like blue or gold) in its lineup.

We still don’t know how much the Samsung Galaxy S5 will cost in the US. In any case, not more than $200 on contract is probably a good guess.
