When will the Galaxy S5 32GB be available?

It's a pretty simple question, when will  AT&T offer the Galaxy S5 32GB?  I know last year the Galaxy S4 32GB came out about 17-20 days after the Galaxy S4 16GB launched, but last year the price for a 32GB Galaxy S4 was announced and so far this year nothing.

 

For those who feel 16GB is sufficient, that's great.  For those who feel having a 128GB microSD card slot is sufficient, also great.  But what you cannot do is move app/app data to the microSD card so for those who want and in fact must have a 32GB device (actually about 23-25GB of usable space compared to 10.7GB of usable space) it's a necessity.

 

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Hope you're right.  Not sure where you are getting that information or if it is verifiable.  Last year the price was posted for the 32GB S4 before it appeared....unlike now.  No price for the 32GB S5.

I'd like to be notified whenever AT&T does start selling the 32GB S5.

I advise patience--you will regret going back to Verizon.  AT&T will either carry the 32GB S5 soon, or it may introduce the higher-end phone mentioned in the blogs.  Another similar model is mentioned by Samsung in benchmarking data to the FCC.

I am aware of the rumored S5 Prime or whatever it may be called, but we have no guarantee's that will make it to the US or that US carriers want another iteration of the same device with a minor changes.  Yes QHD display, 3GB or RAM vs 2GB and .1" bigger screen but TBH you really can't say youi will notice the difference on a 1080p vs QHD display on a 5" screen because we won't.  Plus battery life is a real issue and we don't know what that will be like.  I hope Samsung makes the GN4 with 4GB of RAM and bumps the GS6 to 3GB of RAM next year to help with performance.

 

That said I prefer not to return to Verizon on a permenant basis so I am on a pre-paid option until AT&T gets off their duff and offers the phone I actually want and will pay for on their network.

Hellllo again,  so just wanted to post in response to new events and such.....here is what I believe to be what is going on.   Samsung Originally Intended to make two or three models to be released in close succession,  such as in past BUT this year , we're also getting a "Prime" "Premium"  or high end model along with the Zoom , lame....mini ehhh sorta cool if it kept higher specs.   but anywho.......the thing with 32 gb started with me on the samsung website listing it as 16/32....okay yes, a mistake they should have fixed but I believe that the   32referers ONLY to the premium or high end model.  To me it makes sense that way but we shall see.  Probably still get a S5 just to have something to play with for a few months....hoping for the best.  Thanks all for the input

EVERY android is unlockable and rootable...check the blogs for how to do this.  Unlocking is cheap and easy if you want someone else to do it for you.

That is not a correct statement.  Not every Android phone can be rooted or unlocked.  In fact Verizon and AT&T encrypyt their bootloaders so they cannot get custom ROM's. the GS4 and GS5 have not been defeated and since Samsung has added KNOX it has only gotten worse.

 

In fact only a few models of the GS5 have been rooted and AT&T and Verizon are NOT among them.

 

Here are the download links to CF-Auto-Root packages:

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) -- International Snapdragon

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900H) – International Exynos

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900I) – Oceania

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900L) – Korean model

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900M) – Model for Middle East and South America

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900RT) – US Cellular

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900T) – T-Mobile United States

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900P) – Sprint

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900T1) – MetroPCS

Galaxy S5 (SM-G900W8) – Canadian model

I was not aware of that.  It makes sense that Knox will complicate the process. Thanks for the correction.

Can't see Samsung making any more than one version for the US?  Why not? They certainly did for the Galaxy S III and S4.  Just wasn't available at all carriers.

Just another update for everyone. I chatted with a Samsung rep tonight and it took him awhile to give me this information, but he finally did! So I think this is good news for us, even though that wait time isn't ideal.Galaxy S5 Release.png
