According to the unnamed Samsung exec, the Galaxy S5 will be available in retail stores just three weeks after its announcement. Supposing Samsung unveils the Galaxy S5 in Barcelona next week, the Galaxy S5 would be on store shelves in mid-March 2014.
We’ve been hearing that Samsung may release two different versions of the Galaxy S5, one high-end and one mid-teir, as Apple did in 2013 with its iPhone 5S and 5C.
Industry insider Eldar Murtazin has confirmed this rumor via Twitter, also stating that he believes the Galaxy S5 variants will have different names. Murtazin also claims that we’ll see the lower end GS5 variant release first, with the higher-end variant landing in stores a few weeks later.
