Samsung to release star-studded Galaxy S5 in partnership with Swarovski
In related news, Samsung will also be releasing a limited “Crystal Collection edition” of the Galaxy S5 next month. The smartphone is being developed in partnership with Swarovski, which has worked with Samsung in the past too.
The company has released a teaser of the phone on YouTube, which can be seen below.
According to Samsung Korea, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Crystal Collection edition will first be launched in the company’s home market.
Something’s clearly not adding up. This is anything BUT Core 2. The original Core had 1GB RAM and 8GB storage. How can the second gen come with lesser specs?
Even by Samsung’s standards, that’s highly unlkely. Either the Russians got it wrong in the specs dept. or it’s probably going to be just the “Galaxy Core Neo” or something like that LOL! Samsung at it’s gadget spamming
The Moto G effect: If Moto G wasn’t there, Samsung would have priced it above 15k. It had to cut corners somewhere so it knocked off the RAM.
Who is interested? i m not..
