Samsung’s 5.1-inch super smartphone comes packing a 16-megapixel camera, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocking in at 2.5GHz, fingerprint sensor security, Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS and a nicely spacious 2800mAh battery, so it’s easy to see why said shopaholics, S5-obsessives and butterfingered boozers alike would have hit the pre-order pages as soon as the new Sammy became available this morning. Now all they have to do is sit back and wait.

For how long? It’s all down to design – models ordered in ‘Shimmer White’ and ‘Charcoal Blue’ finishes will be delivered from April 11th, the ‘Electric Blue’ option by April 22nd and ‘Copper Gold’ by May 20th (an exclusive for Vodafone at launch) if you’re going by Carphone Warehouse’s estimations.
