Interested in picking up a gold Galaxy S5 once it launches on Verizon later this month? If so, here's an early look at what the device will look like, thanks to a leak posted by notorious leakster @evleaks.

As you can see from the image above, Verizon's version features the carrier's branding instead of Samsung's logo. The Galaxy S5 branding at the bottom is also new, and ensures that you never forget what device you're rocking.

The device in itself features the same internal hardware as the standard Galaxy S5, which includes a 5.1-inch full-HD screen, quad-core 2.5 GHz CPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 MP camera and LTE connectivity in addition to IP67 certification, which means that you can take it to the pool. The gold Galaxy S5 is slated to launch on May 30 on Verizon's network, although it will be offered at a few select indirect retailers. Pricing information hasn't been detailed yet, but it is likely this version will cost the same as other color variants of the Galaxy S5.

Are you interested in buying this version of the Galaxy S5 once it launches on Big Red? Let us know in the comments below.

I agree!!

mstrblueskys says:

Honestly, I don't really think any of them do. The iPhone, the HTC, the G3 - gold's just an awkward color in my eyes.

RaiderWill says:

Too Bad it's not a Prime.. :-)

someguy01234 says:

There ain't no prime. This is as close as you're going to get:
PS. There ain't no HTC M8 Prime either.

I kinda feel like you might be right.


someguy01234 says:

I don't mean there won't be an HTC Max or Galaxy Note 4 or S5 Active, which what they'll more likely be.

NoNexus says:

there are too many leaks for there not to be a "prime" model to not be in the works and almost available.

Sounds like someguy owns a standard S5..
And is in TOTAL denial..
You know what? I don't blame you.. I'd be pissed too if I spent (or are spending) $649.99 + Tax on a device that gets upgraded within a few months.. Shades of Razr / Razr Maxx.

I can't wait until the gold phone trend is over. Fugly.

My AC App signature lacks a witty comment.

Nev says:

I would pimp the shit out of that phone.

That "Verizon 4G LTE" is just atrocious. Same bs on the note3. I thought that Samsung is big enough at this point to say No - as long as I remember iPhone doesn't have any vzw stamp, or it's almost invisible.
Not a fan of gold, especially on a phone, but this would be probably the worst -furthest from it.

VZW Moto X

DaMaRa1109 says:

Agreed. Samsung needs to tell verizon to chill out with the branding.

NoNexus says:

Yeah my Note 3 (Sprint) has none of that noise. I know there is a huge subscriber difference between Sprint and VZW, but you would think that they would at least cut down on it...

udazavlanje says:

Speaking of cutting down -
How about the bloat ?! I don't need nor care for their stupid apps and extra "services". If they can stay away from iPhone's software they can do the same w Android. The only reason they are still having my money is coverage and unlimited data.

Vzw wanted to sell the iphone after seeing custome4s flock to att for it. Apple held the cards and dictates terms to carrier's. How else could we explain why most/all phones on vzw except apple device's get slapped with vzw logos?

My S4 is in a case so I really don't care. And on the rare occasion it isn't its in my pocket or the logo is covered by my hand.

There might be a few more people who like it.

Joel E says:

Nope. I would have got it at launch if it was available.

Posted from my caseless GS5. Because I believe in myself.

Junior chuxx says:

Why r people making a big deal because of branding? Lol you people need a job.

Posted via Android Central App

+1. If you don't like it get a case

ConTejas says:

Looks pretty good from the front, but the back is hideous.

deeb215 says:

I agree it should of been black with gold trimming and/or white with gold trim similar to what they did with the Note.

operator207 says:

Is it just me or does this look like someone took a standard S5, and sprayed it with Krylon? Then added "trim" they got off ebay.

Ytown says:

I would have purchased the LG G2 last year but held off because they branded the front. I can handle if it's on the back. I think the 4G LTE is getting to be overkill at this point. Just wait until they start tattooing with 4G XLTE.

The G3 appears to look good in gold, the iPhone 5s looks nice too. The M8 and S5 are absolutely hideous in gold.

Love it!!!

That render has the wireless charger back on it. I wonder if they'll sell it with that back already on it as a bonus. That would be nice.
