Sprint reseller Ting to start selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 on May 5

The Galaxy S5 has already found a place on the lineups of most US carriers, and now, the device will be making its way to Sprint reseller Ting, making it the first mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) to stock Samsung’s latest flagship. Ting will start stocking the phone from May 5th, before larger carriers like Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile, and will sell the device at $599, around $50 less than other carriers.

Naturally, the S5 will retain its top-of-the-line specs when it heads to Ting – these include a 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16-megapixel camera with fast autofocus, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD slot, 2,800 mAH battery, fingerprint and heart rate sensors, and Android 4.4 KitKat. Software features would include things like Ultra Power Saving Mode, Download Booster, and a special camera mode that allows refocusing of photos after they’ve been captured, similar to the UFocus option on the HTC One M8.

Ting is now taking pre-orders, details on which can be found on the source link.
