Carriers defy Samsung to sell Galaxy S5 early in South Korea

Samsungs new Galaxy S5 smartphone went on sale in South Korea today, more than two weeks before its planned global release date, despite attempts by Samsung to delay the phones arrival in stores. Samsung says it planned to release the phone in its home market on April 11th, but South Korean carriers moved the date forward to avoid government sanctions that prevent them from obtaining new customers during April. In a statement, Samsung said it was very puzzled about South Korean carriers decision and was deciding how to respond to the early sale. SK Telecom [South Koreas largest carrier] strongly asked for an earlier release of the product but we delivered our stance that the global release date of April 11 remains unchanged.
