Samsung Galaxy S5 release date rumors: late March market launch, waterproof and dustproof

According to ZDNet Korea, the Samsung Galaxy S5 could hit store shelves towards the end of March 2014.

The publication also writes that the standard version of the smartphone will be dustproof and waterproof, as Samsung’s previous Galaxy S4 Active.

Last year Sony unveiled the waterproof and dustproof Xperia Z. This development seems to be followed by Samsung and possibly even more manufacturers this year.

The news contradicts previous speculation about a Galaxy S5 Active model arriving this year.

The report also echoes previous rumors about the implementation of a fingerprint sensor in the Home button.
