If you can't wait until April 11 to get a look at the Samsung Galaxy S5 and its range of Gear accessories, Samsung has made it possible to see the new devices ahead of their launch next week. Samsung today announced that it will have a "Global Preview" of the Galaxy S5, Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit at its stores and special retail partners. Customers in the US can go down to their local Samsung Experience store or carrier store and get some personal hands-on time with the devices in store. Not all stores participate in the launch, so some stores will not have the new Samsung products on display.
The special preview starts today in the United States and Switzerland. It will next come to Brazil, China, Germany, and the United Kingdom. The plan is to eventually arrive in 1,400 locations across the globe, but Samsung has not listed exactly where those locations will be. Your best bet would be to visit a Samsung Experience location like the store's specialty shop in New York City or contact your local carriers and Best Buy stores to find out if they are participating.
The Galaxy S5's global launch date is April 11. For more on the device, check our Galaxy S5 Hub to see its capabilities and watch a hands-on video.
