Samsung Galaxy S5 Out Early in U.S. and Antarctica, Neo and Fit Out in UK and Galaxy Tab 4 Series Announced
By Gel Galang | April 2, 2014 1:52 PM EST
The first is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4.7, which GSM Arena reports to be coming out with a 7-inch display featuring 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, 3-MP rear and 1.3-MP front cameras, the choice of 8 or 16 GB of memory with expandable memory and the Android 4.4 Kitkat OS.
There's also the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 series, which features the 8-inch display, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, which has a 10.1-inch display. All the other specs are similar to first Galaxy Tab 4, and the colour options will be Black and White. No pricing details have been revealed yet, though the expected release date is sometime during Q2 of this year.
Retailers Already Selling Samsung Galaxy S5 and Smartwatches
The worldwide set release date for the Samsung Galaxy S5 had been put at April 11, despite the bans in the company's homeland for three of the biggest carriers.
Granted it had already been on sale in the likes of SK Telecom just so it can get some sales in for the Samsung Galaxy S5 before the government ban takes full control. But now, rogue carriers are already selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 at $825, reports CNet.
Apart from this, Antarctica carriers also seem to be launching in Antarctica as well. Phone Arena reports that a number of networks over at Argentina's Antarctic bases have been traced as the ones who are already launching the Samsung flagship this early.
The kicker is that the carriers do not have a retail presence in Antarctica, and the only way by which consumers can get the Samsung Galaxy S5 would be via radio signal order and shipping via dog sled. Apparently, the reason for the advanced selling has something to do with lacking advertising mediums in the first place.
But for those who are not one after the title of being the first to have the Samsung Galaxy S5, there are a number of retailers in the UK that are willing to let consumers explore the Samsung Galaxy S5. That or buyers can go for the Samsung Experience App, which lets users experience Samsung's flagship phone via their own current smartphone.
Gear Fit and Gear 2 Neo Now Priced and Out
The UK has also received a good surprise, as the Gear Fit and Gear 2 Neo are already in stock and can be bought for a £179.98 price tag. For now, the device is still limited to the black variation as well as limited in stock.
For now, TechRadar reports that Unlocked Mobiles features the available Samsung smartwatches, while other retailers are still waiting for updates for when it will be released, but the time frame given is somewhere between April and May.
