Retail staff hint at UK release date
Samsung has been training staff at London outlets of major retailers on the Galaxy S5 handset ahead of its global launch on April 11.
EE and Vodafone staff received training last Thursday and some members hinted that April 11, the date given as the global launch, would also see the release of the device to the UK market.
There has been no official confirmation from Samsung, the major operators or retailers about when the device will launch in the UK.
It is understood that all three parties are keen to avoid a repeat of the delays in shipping handsets at the time of the S4 launch.
The Galaxy S5 was announced by the manufacturer at Mobile World Congress last month.
