Galaxy S5 gold edition exclusive to sell at Carphone Warehouse, after one of its major retail rivals launched pre-registration website pages for every colour option except ‘copper gold’.
Dialaphone’s committed page for upcoming telephones, including the opportunity to enroll for availability upgrades, records the Charcoal Galaxy S5, alongside the white version as well as the saucy-sounding ‘Electric Blue’ iteration.
The Galaxy S5 will ship in four different color varieties, the traditional Shimmer White from previous Samsung Galaxy handsets, Electric Blue, Charcoal Black, and the newest addition Galaxy S5 Gold (Copper Gold). Each of the different color variants features the same perforated back, doing away with the plastic from previous generations.
However, the galaxy s5 gold edition- that is the one that is anticipated to be most in demand – is not recorded whatsoever, suggesting Dialaphone, which carries deals across all major UK networks, will not be selling it. And the blingiest editon is likely to be exclusive to a different retailer.

We Are willing to wager that said seller is likely Carphone Warehouse, whose standing as the UK’s biggest retailer means it is got the fiscal muscle to wangle that type of big money deal. We Have approached Dialaphone, which can be possessed by Phones 4U, and Carphone for opinion and we’ll update you when we hear back.
We Had formerly been led to consider that the carrier – most likely Vodafone or EE – might have exclusive rights to sell the gold Galaxy S5, after O2 formally verified it will not be ranging it before this month.
Interestingly, the listings on Dialaphone additionally disclose that people can probably anticipate preorders to begin in mid-March, ahead of the telephone’s official due date in shops on April 11th.
Carriers have yet to break cover with preorder dates or pricing. After the latter neglected to rack up the sales that sector wonks had predict, but tips are abroad that the Galaxy S5 could truly be priced less in relation to the Galaxy S4.
EE at least been forthcoming enough to swear an unnamed ‘exclusive bonus” for customers who order the Galaxy S5 in advance. That seems just like a totally free present to us, or maybe a double-credit, time-limited tariff offer of the type the carrier was running until lately.
