Officially, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is available in four color options: Shimmer White, Charcoal Black, Electric Blue, and Copper Gold. If you’re shopping internationally, you’ve got your choice there, but if you’re in the US and want to go with a carrier variant GS5, your options start drying up fast: right now, your choices are limited to just boring-old black and white. That may soon be changing, with word today that Verizon could add that gold GS5 to its lineup.
At least, so says eminent tipster @evleaks, and while he doesn’t offer an image of this gold GS5 with Verizon branding, it’s not like we don’t know what to expect. This sounds like good news for smartphone shoppers craving a little more variety in their choices, but we only wish this report was a little broader in scope: what about the blue GS5, not to mention the other big US carriers? Is it just a matter of time before these other colors spread everywhere, or will some carriers simply end up with a better selection than others?
As of now, there’s no ETA for this gold GS5 on Verizon, but we’ll be on the lookout for any new developments.
