Samsung Galaxy S5 launch in Singapore

Published on Apr 11, 2014 12:42 PM

From Tampines Mall to Westgate, and at Plaza Singapura to Marina Bay Sands, hundreds waited in line to be the first to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone, Gear 2 smart watch and Gear Fit fitness tracker.

At the SingTel location at Marina Bay Sands, the first person in line started queuing at 6.45am. By 10.30am, over a hundred people were already in line.

Instead of just having one location, StarHub had collection points at 14 StarHub stores and gave timeslots and pick-up locations to customers.

The queues at telcos and Samsung Experience Stores this morning were for customers who preordered the phone. The devices will only be available for sale to the public from tomorrow (Saturday, April 12).
