So there you have it, a date with what will be one of the biggest competitors on the smartphone scene this year.
We just can’t wait to find out who will offer it with the best deals. Last year the Galaxy S4 was first offered by Zamtel but we hope this year’s offer of the Samsung Galaxy S5 by Samsung Zambia and its affiliate operators will offer better prices, data bundle plans that are actually affordable seeing as the phone runs on Android, and payment plans to suit the pocket of customers. We also await to know if the devices will come prepackaged with the Gear watches or if they’ll be sold separately.
