Samsung Galaxy S5 Crystal Edition confirmed for May launch
Samsung is known for launching its flagship Galaxy smartphones in new avatars and variants. Following the tradition, the South Korean giant has confirmed that its flagship Galaxy S5 is coming in a Crystal Edition with Swarovski Crystal.

Samsung Mobile Korea has posted a video on YouTube that teases the upcoming Galaxy S5 Crystal Edition smartphone. The video does not reveal much about the new Galaxy S5 variant; though it confirms that the rear panel will be featuring crystals from Swarovski. The video also confirms that the Galaxy S5 Crystal Edition smartphone is launching in May.

However, there is no word whether the May release for the Galaxy S5 variant is for the Korean market only, or also intended for a global release.

Samsung in the past had launched the Galaxy S4 Crystal Edition, which was available in limited numbers in selective countries.

The South Korean giant in January also announced the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 mini 'Black Editions', which featured black-coloured faux-leather back cover, as first seen in Galaxy Note 3.

We expect that the Galaxy S5 Crystal Edition will come with identical specifications as the original version.

Samsung's latest flagship Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S5 went on sale worldwide on April 11. It is priced at Rs. 51,500 in India.

The biggest new features being touted on the Galaxy S5 by Samsung include a fingerprint scanner on the home button, a heart rate sensor placed near the 16-megapixel camera, and the IP67 certification that makes it dust and water-resistant. As of now, there is no word whether the Galaxy S5 Crystal Edition will come with such features. The smartphone also features a new design in terms of the back panel now being perforated, and available with four colours at launch, and optional designer back panels.
