Samsung Galaxy S5 release date of April 11, 2014 did not become a reality. Retailers in the U.S. have already put S5 on sale ahead of its original schedule. Samsung S5 go on sale in South Korea first prior to its official launch. And now, Samsung’s flagship smartphone is on sale in the U.S. before April 11 release date.
This is a dagger to Samsung since they take smartphone launches in a very serious manner. Samsung like Apple, is a company which hold on to their words. Both Samsung and Apple usually hang on to their complete control of when their flagship phones are to go on sale.
Samsung made its official announcement that the release date will be on April 11 in a concurrent worldwide launch in more than 150 countries. SK Telecom – one of Samsung’s carrier partners, has independently launched it in South Korea as early as March 27, much to Samsung disappointment.
What is more dismaying report for Samsung is that at least five of their U.S retailers have already purchased S5 units from SK Telecom and are now distributing it before the official launch date. Samsung control over their launch date has disappeared. Will Samsung cut their bonds with their retailers?
