Samsung and Swarovski team up regularly to introduce a crystal-studded version of Samsung’s flagships. Now it’s time for the Galaxy S5 to get a Crystal Collection edition. The device looks like a plain Galaxy S5, but completely covered in Swarovski crystals. This won’t be the first time Samsung has teamed up with Swarovski for a Crystal Edition, as they did the same thing last year with the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3, though the Galaxy S4 was sold as a Crystal Edition versus just selling a blinged-out Galaxy Note 3 battery cover. To provide some context, the crystal-backed Galaxy S4 sold for roughly $630, while the crystal-encrusted Galaxy Note 3 battery cover retailed for $300 when it launched in New York City.
Anyway, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Crystal Edition is expected in May and that’s all the teaser video reveals. Since the video was posted on the Samsung mobile Korea channel, it seems that device will be available only in South Korea, but is unknown whether Samsung will make the Crystal Collection Galaxy S5 available in other regions.
