A new leak tips that Samsung will also be introducing the Gold variant of its much-anticipated Galaxy S5 smartphone at the Barcelona event, scheduled on 24 February 2014.
The leak comes via GSMArena who received a purported image of Vodafone's inventory system, which shows a Samsung Galaxy S5 Gold smartphone listed alongside other devices like Apple iPhone 5s and HTC One. As of now, the alleged image of Vodafone's inventory system did not reveal many details about the rumoured Galaxy S5 Gold.
Notably, Samsung is famous for launching a number of variants of its flagship devices. The 2013 flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4, had a number of variants, namely: Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4 Zoom, and Galaxy S4 Mini. A Gold colour variant of the Galaxy S4 was also launched quite a bit after the device's global unveiling. However, it seems that the South Korean major might announce the Galaxy S5 in Gold option right at the global launch.
A report on Thursday suggested that Samsung is hoping to wow the world with new smartphone at MWC 2014.
With just few days left in the launch of much-anticipated Samsung's next flagship smartphone, rumours about the Galaxy S5 are pouring in fast. A recent report indicated that the Galaxy S5 could be unlocked using a swipe over the home button. The report informed that Apple used a sapphire coating for its home button on the iPhone 5s, while Samsung has plans to use a ultra-violet (UV) coating over its fingerprint scanner. In addition, the report also claimed that the Galaxy S5 will be a dustproof and waterproof device.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is also long-rumoured to be launched alongside a new tablet series, believed to be dubbed Galaxy Tab 4, at the side-lines of the MWC 2014.
Earlier reports have suggested that Samsung has plans to launch the Galaxy Gear successor, named Galaxy Gear 2 at the 24 February 2014 event in Barcelona. The latest rumours surrounding the smartwatch indicate it might launch with Tizen OS, instead of Android like its predecessor.
