Samsung Galaxy S5 Rumors – 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB Storage Options, Black and White Flavors

Samsung Galaxy S5 Rumors – 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB Storage Options, Black and White FlavorsA post on Chinese microblogging site Twitter suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be offered in three different internal storage configurations, much like the iPhone 5s, while coming in the same color options that were offered on the Galaxy S4.

As rumors continue piling up ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S5’s rumored Mobile World Congress 2014 launch and late April release date, details on the device are beginning to match up with each other, but until this week, there wasn’t much to be said about flavors, or color options, while reports had mostly, but not unanimously suggested that the Galaxy S5 won’t come in 16 GB form, as 32 GB would become the base configuration.  Now it looks like that won’t be the case, according to a Weibo post from a user called “Miyachiki.”

The user’s post, which was shared by Sam Mobile, suggests similar 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB storage options like the iPhone 5s, which slightly goes against reports of 32 GB and 64 GB being the only choices.  KDB Daewoo Securities, a Korean market research company, had also noted something similar, saying that the Galaxy S5 will be launched with 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB versions.  As rumors remain prevalent regarding premium and budget versions of the Galaxy S5, it’s possible the storage options could correspond to a budget variant; according to Miyachiki, the model number he was referring to is the SM-G900.

Miyachiki had also said via Twitter that Samsung will stick to black and white flavors for the Galaxy S5, which isn’t surprising as those choices were the release date colors for the Galaxy S4, while Samsung had some well-documented production glitches with the Pebble Blue Galaxy S3 in 2012.  And though it wasn’t reported, it’s safe to assume Samsung will offer other flavors later on in the Galaxy S5’s life cycle, so as to keep the device interesting and appeal to buyers holding off because they don’t like the colors available upon release date.
