Carphone Warehouse: Samsung Galaxy S5 interest hits new levels
Carphone Warehouse has revealed that pre-registration figures for Samsung's new Galaxy S5 flagship have topped its predecessor by 130%.
The retailer quickly confirmed the device's availability after its unveiling at Mobile World Congress, and interest shot up above the levels seen before for a Galaxy handset, including last year's Galaxy S4. The device, expected in April, received a mixed reception after Samsung's ceremony in Barcelona on Monday, but pre-registration reveals it is still hotly anticipated.
Carphone Warehouse MD Carl Cowling said: ‘If these early pre-registration figures are anything to go by then customer interest is extremely high. Samsung has clearly built up a very loyal fanbase and the Galaxy S5 looks set to become one of the biggest selling handsets ever. By introducing mobile payments, health and wellness functions and a host of other useful features, Samsung has created a device that will synchronise seamlessly across all aspects of a consumer’s life.’
