As anticipated, Samsung has announced the arrival of the Galaxy S5 Developer Edition for Verizon, which brings with it all the goodies of Samsung's latest handset, as well as a handy unlocked bootloader for developers to dive into the device.

The Verizon Galaxy S5 Developer Edition is model ET-G900VMKA, and with it comes the expected off-contract price of $599.99 USD. Aside from that, the handset is largely the same as its locked down brethren, bringing a 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 16-megapixel camera, heart rate monitor, and fingerprint scanner.

The device is available to those located in the United States — whether a developer edition will also arrive on AT&T, as was the case with the Galaxy S4 Developer Edition, isn't known.
