Samsung Galaxy S5 Goes On Sale In Korea

A Korean retailer has put the Samsung Galaxy S5 on sale and it appears that Samsung didn't know anything about it.

Companies aren't supposed tobe offering the new flagship until April 11th, as this is the global launch date. However, South Korean carriers SK Telecom, KT Corp and LG Uplus Corp have decided on their own release date.

The group have started selling it because SK believes that upcoming sanctions would have prevented it selling the phone in April and May. This means, instead of falling behind the pack with sales, it has jumped the gun.

Samsung's obviously not happy that some of its Korean retailers have taken it upon themselves to beat the global launch date. However, it maintains that none of this will have an affect on when the rest of the world will get its hands on it, suggesting that unless you are in Korea, you will have to sit back and wait for April 11th.
