While the Samsung Galaxy S5 might not necessarily be the most luxurious looking smartphone in the market at the moment, its design is more than capable of getting the job done, not to mention it is pretty nice to look at as well. Then again we expect that there are people out there who might prefer something a little more “bling”.
Enter the Crystal Collection. Yup, you read that right, Samsung will be teaming up with the folks at Swarovski, the company famous for their crystals, in creating a Crystal Collection for the Galaxy S5 that is expected to launch in May. Not much details are known at this point in time, but given that it is called the “collection”, we expect that there will be different versions to choose from.
The Crystal Collection will also be launching in South Korea and there is no word on whether the Crystal Collection will be making its way stateside, but we expect if you truly wanted the device, you could probably find it online somewhere, like eBay for example.
This is actually not the first time that Samsung has embarked on a partnership with Swarovski. We’ve seen their collaborations with the Galaxy S3 and it was only a couple of months ago that they launched a crystal-studded Galaxy Note 3. In any case apart from the new look and possibly new price tag, we expect the hardware innards to remain the same.
