After the government banned some of the top carriers in South Korea, Samsung allowed them to start selling the Galaxy S5 before the date of the phone’s release.
Samsung took the decision because the ban will see the top carriers barred from selling phones at the official release date of the SGS5.
Yonhap News reported that right now in Korea, 7000 units of the c are sold everyday since March 27. This competes very well with last year’s Galaxy S4 that was sold an average 8000 units daily.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is currently priced at KRW 866,800 or $820 in Korea, a few dollars below last year’s Galaxy S4 that was sold at KRW 899,000 ($850) at launch.
