Update: March 18, 2014: Today, Samsung officially announced Canadian specs for the Samsung Galaxy S5, hitting Rogers this April. Being a Rogers customer has its advantages with this launch:
- Light up your Samsung Galaxy S5, with its quad-core processor, on Rogers LTE, Canada’s fastest LTE network, and you can expect smooth HD video streaming and blazing fast downloads with virtually no buffering or lags;
- Be gone the days of carrying a bulky wallet! All Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphones from Rogers will come with the suretap wallet, an app that lets you securely store your credit and debit card information and make payments using your smartphone;
- Rogers will carry Samsung’s full line-up of next-generation Gear wearables – Gear Fit, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo – starting on April 11.
