Samsung coming up with Galaxy S5 ‘Crystal’ edition

Samsung coming up with Galaxy S5 ‘Crystal’ editionSamsung Korea has recently posted 12-second video on the YouTube channel, teasing a forthcoming 'Crystal' version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 handset.

For the Galaxy S5 'Crystal' edition, which increases the 'bling' factor of the handset, Samsung has teamed up with jewelry-maker Swarovski to make an attention-grabbing cover for the handset.

The 'Crystal' Galaxy S5 is scheduled to launch in South Korea in May; though the expected timeline for the US launch of the handset is still not known. The cost of the Crystal edition has also not been officially announced thus far.

Nonetheless, in the video, Samsung Korea has teased a Galaxy S5 edition which is adorned with black Swarovski crystals on its back. However, the video does not reveal whether the Crystal S5 will boast a more premium build material as compared to the standard S5 handset, or will feature the same plastic chassis embellished with crystals.

Despite the fact that Samsung has not divulged any details on the specifications of the Crystal S5 handset, it is being speculated that the features of the Crystal edition will largely be the same as those of the standard Galaxy S5 handset. The main distinguishing factors of the Crystal S5 edition vis-a-vis the standard S5 will be the flashier back cover and a higher price tag.
