You do it, I do it, everyone does it: when a new smartphone comes out, we clap excitedly at the robust spec sheet, and pontificate the power we’ll have in the palm of our hand. The Galaxy S5 is one of the better specced phones we’ve seen lately, while the Moto E is — well, it leaves hardware fans wanting.
At Heathrow airport in London, Samsung has "taken over" what may be the world’s busiest terminal. Purchasing the bulk of advertising area in the terminal, you’ll see more Samsung Galaxy S5 posters and large signage per square foot here than anywhere else in the world. This campaign is set to stick around for two weeks.
Looks like Samsung will really be emphasizing the "prime" in the rumored Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime variant. Aside from a 2K resolution display, the premium version of the flagship is now believed to also sport an aluminum covering, at least according this set of leaked photos and videos.
Airports are already hotbeds of advertising, all those captive eyes eager for something to stare at, but Samsung is going one step further by taking over the whole branding of Heathrow Terminal 5 in London, UK. Starting May 19th, every single sign, digital screen, directions board, and even the website for T5 will be rebranded as "Terminal Samsung Galaxy S5".
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, believed to be a higher-resolution version of Samsung's existing flagship smartphone, could have just crossed through Bluetooth certification, supporting rumors of an imminent release. The Prime title of the Galaxy S5 variant isn't given, only its SM-G906L model code, though the root SM-G906 code itself has previously been connected with the S5 Prime.
Samsung's Galaxy S5 is said to have passed the 10m devices shipped mark, with South Korean media reporting that the milestone was hit faster than any previous Galaxy flagship. The company itself is yet to confirm sales figures for the Galaxy S5, but reports suggest it took only 25 days to ship 10m devices.
An unofficial collection of bursts in the world of the Galaxy S5 have appeared today, each of them with little fanfare from Samsung itself. One of these is the release of the Developer Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S5. This device will be hitting Verizon starting today, complete with the ability to get deep within its software build for heavy smartphone app development.
