New Galaxy S5 pre-order and price information has emerged via the internet.
The UK-based retailer known as Clove listed the Galaxy S5 on its website with a pre-order price tag of £458.33, which is equivalent to $766. This makes it a bit more expensive than previous Galaxy S models as the S3 and S4 sold for $600 off contract.
Price strategies and taxes varies from country to country so the S5 might be cheaper than that price in the U.S. without a contract. It will probably retail for $200 with one.
U.S. carriers will most likely begin offering pre-orders for the Galaxy S5 during the next few weeks based on this information.
The Galaxy S5 release date was announced for four major U.S. carriers T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon and Sprint.
All of these companies have confirmed that they will begin carrying the device in April. The slightly smaller U.S. Cellular will also begin offering the device around the same time. None of these carriers have confirmed an exact day.
The Galaxy S5 will hit the U.K. carriers in April as well. EE, Three and Vodafone all confirmed that they will be selling the device, and Phones 4U and Carphone Warehouse will have it in stock.
Canada users will be able to get their hands on the S5 through carriers Bell, Fido, Rogers, Eastlink, MTS, Koodo, SaskTel, Videotron, Virgin Mobile, TELUS and WIND Mobile. Bell is the only company that has confirmed an April release for the device.
The S5 will launch in Australia on carriers Optus, Vodafone AU, Telstra and Virgin Mobile. Telstra and Vodafone have posted up "register of interest" pages for the device, however, none of these companies have announced dates at this time.
