Three has expanded its Samsung Galaxy S5 options, adding the gold hued handset to its existing black, white and blue offerings.

Completing the line-up of Galaxy S5 launch colours, Three has confirmed that it will offer the gold S5 starting from today, May 16.

Despite having been unveiled at the phone’s launch back in February, the gold Samsung Galaxy S5 was offered as a Vodafone exclusive in the UK at launch. Now, however, this period of exclusivity is over and the competition as waded in to the extravagantly hued handset race.

Making the announcement a Three spokesperson told us: “From today, Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S5 Gold edition is available from Three both in-store and online.

Available on PAYG basis with a £549 price tag, Three will also offer the gold S5 on a range of 24 month contracts.
For a £29 up-front fee and a £38 per-month contract over two years, the gold S5 will be bundled with 600 inclusive minutes, unlimited texts and, most importantly, all-you-can-eat 4G data.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 packs a 5.1-inch, Full HD display alongside a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB of RAM.

Running a 16-megapixel rear-mounted camera and with an fingerprint scanner built in to the phone’s physical home button, the S5 is powered by Android 4.4 KitKat, skinned with the company’s TouchWiz UI.

Far from the only high-end handset to sport a golden colour scheme, the iPhone 5S and HTC One M8 are both available in gold.
