Samsung and Swarovski to launch blinged-out Galaxy S5

Samsung's latest partnership with Swarovski will bring to market a "crystal collection" edition of its flagship phone, the Galaxy S5. A teaser posted on YouTube by Samsung Mobile Korea reveals that the blingtastic handset, the back of which is smothered in Swarovski crystals, will arrive in May in Samsung's home market.

It's unclear whether the "crystal collection" GS5 will see wide availability internationally, however the limited edition crystal-backed Galaxy Note 3 did make its debut in New York a couple of months back, so there's hope yet for fans of sparkly things.
