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.
