Galaxy S5 Swarkovski Crystal Edition – For Those With Expensive Taste
Chris Hadley / 5 years ago
If you’re in the market for a brand new smartphone and you find that even an iPhone 5S is cheap, there are a limited number of options out there for you to look at. Obviously you could go and get a gold-plated iPhone but this a bit too common and everyone and their dog is rocking an iPhone – even if it is covered in gold. There is also the fact that it doesn’t really shine or sparkle. Fear not though as your troubles are soon to be solved as Samsung are soon planning to launch their latest addition to the exclusive Crystal Collection range of handsets.
If you are desperate to get your hands on the [probably outrageously expensive] handset, you will have to wait back a little longer as it appears Samsung are aiming this new creation at the Korean market to start with.
Unlike the Crystal Edition of the S4, Samsung’s promotional video shows that the back of the phone has a bit more than a handful of hand polished stones in place. Covered from top to bottom in Swarkovski crystals, it may be hard to distinguish this handset from one of those cheap and tacky plastic cases that you can buy from the street markets, but there is no mistaking the fact that, unlike the cheap cases, these are the real deal.
Specification wise, there is no indication that the S5 will be anything special over the high-street range and with Samsung breaking some records with the sales of the handset, I imagine Samsung will quickly rack up the sales of the Limited Edition handset when they are available. Whilst I can see that there are a number of people out there who have enough money to, or are crazy enough to spend this much money on a phone, I can imagine that many will hold off doing so, after all if you’re already making a statement about your wealth, having a flashy phone is likely to make you more of a target for theft.
