If you like your smartphone to stand out in a crowd and are a Verizon subscriber, you'll be happy to know the carrier is going to launch the Electric Blue Samsung Galaxy S5.
It's been said many times that Samsung feels very comfortable squeezing out as much as it possibly can from one of its hit devices. The Samsung Galaxy S5 has already broken a record for the smartphone maker, as Samsung recently announced that it shipped a record 11 million Galaxy S5 smartphones in its first month on sale, compared with the Galaxy S4's record of 10 million in a month.
Samsung is looking to make as much off the Galaxy S5 and it's now beginning to offer carriers more than the everyday black or white color options most consumers are used to when picking out a new mobile device. Tech Times recently reported Verizon would be getting an exclusive on the Copper Gold Galaxy S5.
Evleaks is reporting the Samsung Galaxy S5 in Electric Blue is coming to Verizon but the tipster hasn't made any mention of a specific date. Considering that the carrier has announced the gold Samsung Galaxy S5 will go on sale May 30, an official announcement might come soon after or possibly right alongside the golden-hued Galaxy S5.
The new color options are no different from the current Galaxy S5 on store shelves. You'll find a very sharp 5.1-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 432 pixels per inch (ppi). It's running a new version of Samsung's TouchWiz UI, which it claims makes Android easier to use and Samsung exlcusive apps and features.
In terms of cameras, you're looking at a 16-megpixel rear camera with autofocus, and Phase detection autofocus. It has a 2.1-megpixel front facing camera for video chats and selfiies. The Galaxy S5 is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM. Users will find 16GB of internal storage and a microSD expansion slot that supports up to 128GB microSD cards. It also has the benefit of being both waterproof and dust-resistant.
Two new features Samsung introduced with the Galaxy S5 was its built-in heart rate monitor, which has already received a software update to allow it measure stress levels. The company also matched Apple by adding a fingerprint scanner to its home button.
Once we hear any rumored release dates or more information we'll let you know.
