Verizon's gold Galaxy S5 breaks cover

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.
