Earlier today, T-Mobile announced that it would start selling the gold Galaxy S5 on May 30th. As it turns out, this is the launch date for all of the major carriers in the US. Come the end of this month, a blinged out version of the S5 will be available from the likes of AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, and Verizon as well.


With a simultaneous release across so many carriers, this isn't about exclusivity. This is about providing the masses with a better sense of style. Yeah, the phone's still made of plastic, but just look at that color. Nothing says something about a person the way gold does.

What's this about a band-aid? I have no idea what you're talking about.

    Man that guy in the ad is so hipster and fresh. You're telling me that if I buy a gold GS5 I'll be as hip as him with the color pants, tatted arms, unkempt shirt, and galaxy gear? Yes please!

    • Grahaman27

      lol that gear.

      I'll be surprised if he doesn't also have a Gear Fit.

      And is stalking a girl RIGHT NOW.

      I'm actually wearing the same shirt & pants as him right now... After your comments, I feel I must burn my clothing in cleansing fires.

      And also getting into the passenger side of an Inka Orange BMW 2002. I don't think anyone that Douche-ely hipster would have that kind of taste in cars.

    It is just the backplate! The white S5 has a white bezel; all the other ones have a black bezel, right? The black, pink and blue ones here in Japan are that way. I haven't seen a gold one up close, but if it is the same, can't we just buy an extra backplate or two and change our phone color whenever we want?

    We want the BLUE one major carriers not the Band Aid.
