Copper gold Galaxy S5 arriving to all major U.S. Carriers on May 30th

Samsung Galaxy S5 2 gold

Back when the Samsung Galaxy S5 was first introduced, we learned that the Korean giant would be introducing the device in multiple different colors: shimmer white, charcoal black, electric blue and copper gold.

At least for the four major U.S. carriers, the actual launch of the Galaxy S5 only saw the first two of these color choices. This changes soon, however, as Samsung has now announced that they are introducing the Samsung Galaxy S5 copper gold starting on May 30th.

The handset will be available through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular. Verizon will also carry the device through “indirect retailers’, which likely means you won’t be able to get it from a Verizon store but select 3rd party retailers will still offer it. Aside from the new color, pricing and specs remain the same as ever, though the Sprint version has the distinction of giving away a free gold Samsung HM1900 Bluetooth headset.

For those that need the reminder, that means you get the same quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU with 2GB RAM. There’s also a 5.1-inch 1080p display, microSD, a 2800 mAh battery, 16MP rear-facing cam, 2MP front-cam and Android 4.4.2 with TouchWiz.

So what do you think, interested in picking up the copper gold Galaxy S5? If not, do you prefer a different color or is there another handset that holds your fancy instead?

    black front with a gold back would be so sexy in my opinion!

      What do you mean? That’s what the Copper Gold version has

    Thank you Samsung for not releasing the cool looking blue color and thank you for not releasing the S5 in the 32gb option, otherwise I would have bought this phone and had buyers remorse within months! Their failure to release what should have been available on day one will allow me to wait and buy a better phone in (hopefully) the next 90 days. Still rocking my S2 for now, hahaha!

      I’m a little curious, why not just get an SD Card of your preferred size to fulfill your storage needs?

      • Tets

        I would get a 64gb or 128gb microsdxc card, but my thinking is why pay 600-700 for a phone with only 16gb internal storage that probably has between 8-11 actually usable. Completely unacceptable in my eyes. If people keep buying these measly internal storage options then they are the fools. The internal storage is always faster than sd speeds. I think all phones in 2014 and beyond should have 64gb internal MINIMUM!!! Just my opinion, if you don’t agree it’s cool.

        • Aar0nC

          If 32GB internal is what you seek then the G3 is for you. They just leaked that it will come with 32GB internal, no clue on SD. So good things do come to those who wait!

          • V-Phuc

            Or get a SGN3 (available in 32GB), or better yet the SGN4 in September. The G3 is certainly an excellent choice as well. I’m very excited about the G3, just hope it has the microSD card when it launches.

          • Tets

            If the G3 has microSD and a removable battery and 3 gigs of ram I am all over it, I will finally kick Samsung to the curb. I have a Note 2 for my work phone, I like it, but the S pen gets no use from me so it is not a requirement for me at all. Good advice from both of you!
