Wireless carrier T-Mobile is one of the operators to have already announced plans to add the new Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone to its network, and it seems that many of its users have already showed interest in it.
In fact, the company has announced that it has received over 100,000 pre-registrations for the smartphone during the past two days, despite the fact that it will not be launched until April.
“Holy Wow. We have over 100k pre-registrations for the Galaxy S5 in less than 2 days. This is gonna be big,” Mike Sievert, CMO, T-Mobile USA, noted in a tweet. In a subsequent message, he also noted that this was a new record for the wireless carrier.
Made official on Monday at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Galaxy S5 will arrive on shelves as Samsung’s new Android-based flagship handset, packing a nice range of great features over last year’s model.
Among these, we can count a 5.1-inch touchscreen display, a 16-megapixel camera on the back, and a dust- and water-resistant design, IP67 certified. There is also a 2800mAh battery inside the phone, with great battery savings technology attached to it.
The smartphone runs under Android 4.4.2 KitKat but also features an upgraded version of Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface. Galaxy S5 is set to become available via other wireless carriers in the United States as well, but info on its pricing hasn’t been unveiled as of now.
