Vodafone announced on Monday that it will be the only UK operator to sell the Samsung Galaxy S5 in gold at launch.

The handset will start shipping on 11 April, but there's no word on pricing yet.
Vodafone said in a blog post on Monday, "Earlier this month, Samsung unveiled its latest and greatest flagship, the Galaxy S5, to the world. At Vodafone we were pretty excited to be able to say that we'll be stocking the new Android powerhouse (which will be available to pre-order on 28 March), and today we can officially announce that the gold colour option will be a Vodafone exclusive from launch."
