Right from the off, Samsung has been attacked for churning poorly designed handsets. In fact, the company recently faced embarrassment when critics completely rejected the Galaxy S5 citing unimpressive design
Now, it seems like the South Korean giant has finally decided to step out of its comfort zone. Hence, today Samsung has collaborated with Swarovski, a global leader in fashion jewelry. The Swarovski for Samsung is an exclusive collection of Swarovski crystal accessories for the GalaxyS5 and Gear Fit.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Swarovski back panel is made using a patented application process in which Swarovski Crystal Fine Rocks are integrated into the back cover. The new cover design will be available in Vibrant Blue and Mystic Black.
The Gear Fit Charm Sliders are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, each easily customizable with mix-and-match capabilities that enable people to embrace their personal tastes, even as they change for different occasions. They are available in Brown, Golden Shadow and Crystal.
"Samsung and Swarovski share a commitment to bringing high quality, highly desired products to the consumer market, and together, we have succeeded with the Swarovski for Samsung collection," said Christoph Kargruber, Executive Vice President Global Marketing, Swarovski Professional.
The Swarovski for Samsung collection willl launch on Samsung's online store in Korea and pre-sales in China starting today. Users in the UK will follow shortly after, starting on May 22.
