The Samsung Galaxy S5 launched globally earlier this month, and if you've purchased or plan to purchase the phone, you will soon be rewarded with an opportunity to purchase an obscenely flashy accessory for the device. Samsung has announced that it has partnered with Swarovski, purveyors of crystal everything, to release a special Samsung Galaxy S5 Crystal Collection back plate. The phone remains internally like any other S5, but the exterior of the device is littered with Swarovski crystals.
As it did with the Swarovski collection for the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung will release a limited edition back cover that is crystal-encrusted. It will be gaudy and cost extra, but that's exactly what some people want. Samsung plans to release the crystals in select regions in May. The list of countries included and the price of the case have not yet been announced, but Korea is definitely included.
