Verizon's gold Samsung Galaxy S5 to be released on May 31st
posted by Alan F. / May 24, 2014, 1:08 PM
According to our tipster, the gold Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available from Big Red starting on May 31st. Our source, who apparently works for Verizon in some capacity, says that the gold units have just arrived at his store. Samsung announced last week that U.S. carriers would be offering the special colored units starting on May 30th. If our source is correct, Verizon is waiting until the 31st to offer the gold Galaxy S5.
So now you have a week to think about whether to buy the gold colored Galaxy S5, or wait a bit to see if Samsung does unveil the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Me officialy bought this phone last week from qatar jarir book store.. atlast it is available in gold plus 32GB .. this is what i have been waiting for. the stock was very less in the whole country. we can get gold colour easily but to get 32GB is pain.. as we cannot move big app data and all , espeshly with new kitkat rules i am not able to download torrents and all to memory card directly..i will never buy anything less than 32GB.32gb is must.i am very happy to get that. i never look anything back and bought .. it is super phoneee ! no phone can beat Galaxy S5 . i really loved colours of the touchwiz and its keyboad is simply amazing. though i wish it could be packed with 3GB ram but never mind instead we got such a mighty camera..thats enough! guyss i bet you gold is the best colour option for this phone.. it really looook so beautiful in hands.. especially during sunlight it will shine like anything.. if you buy white , then people will just think you are using grand which i suppose most people dont like. all the people who insulted it as plaster , i have nothing to say but being sorry to them ! every year some phones come with big noices like htc one x , xperia z etc but atlaast the SAMSUNG galaxy S is the winner. this happened to this phone tooo. the best phone anyone can get now. nobody can beat korean giant in mobile phones..

He likely works at a Verizon store -- Snickers are his survival food :)

Well, if that's the case, I'd like to know which Verizon store has hired Humpty Dumpty. And, I doubt the release is the 31st; Verzon never releases anything on a Saturday. More than likely, this golden treasure trove is set for a mad gold-rush on the 29th (June 5th - latest)!!

They should just put a picture of honey boo boo's mum on the back of the phone if they're going for the ugliest handset award and be done with it
