Pre-orders for Samsung Galaxy S5 start Friday at AT&T; new flagship is priced at $199.99 on contract
Starting tomorrow, March 21st, AT&T customers can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S5. The latest version of the Korean manufacturer's flagship Android phone, the Galaxy S5 adds a heart rate monitor, fingerprint scanner, and IP67 certified water and dust resistance. AT&T is offering the phone for $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. Those on the AT&T Next 18 plan can pay $25 a month, while AT&T Next 12 members will pay $32.50 monthly for the device. Without a contract, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available for $649.99. The carrier says that the phone will ship in early April, although Samsung has called for an April 11th release date in 150 countries.

Also available for pre-orders starting tomorrow are the Samsung Gear 2 and Samsung Gear 2 Neo smartwatches. The Tizen powered timepieces will be priced at $299 and $199 respectively. The Samsung Gear Fit health-tracking band can also be pre-ordered starting March 21st, priced at $199. All three devices are expected to be shipped early next month.

Starting tomorrow and running through June 5th (or until supplies last), you can take $50 off the price of a Gear 2 or Gear 2 Neo if you pre-order or buy either smartwatch at the same time that you purchase the Samsung Galaxy S5. The Gear Fit is not included in this promotion.

So it IS the same price as the S4 was. In the US, at least.

I'd hope so, although the S4 kept the same price for much longer.

aT LEAST this time AT&T didn't over charge 249$ 2yr price like they did last year with the SIV. but i rather wait a month or two before buying a new phone when it have tons of glitches in the first batch of release.

So I bought my note 3 for 700.00 back last year and this being on 50.00 cheaper seems odd to me.

do you usually like your own comments? because the moment your comment was posted, it has the green number next to it. Anyways, now when the S5 sells more, you trolls will blame it on the cheaper price.

You can't up vote your own comments, but there are folks here with multiple accounts who log into them all and up vote themselves.

it's around 11GB actually, get your facts right. Phonearena had an article where they admitted they were wrong when they mentioned it only had 8.4GB free
