Samsung announces global preview and pre-orders for the Galaxy S5, Gear 2 and Gear Fit
The US and Switzerland are the first countries where pre-orders will be open. As we told you earlier today, AT&T and U.S. Cellular already confirmed that they’d take pre-orders Stateside starting March 21, for $199.99 on contract. T-Mobile will accept pre-orders come March 24. Verizon and Sprint will probably do it petty soon, too.
Overall, the Galaxy S5 and the Gear wearables will be available for preview and pre-order in 61 countries around the world, including the UK, Germany, Brazil and China. Customers should be able to find the new products at Samsung Experience Stores, major retailers, and mobile carrier stores.
So, are you going to buy a Galaxy S5 (pictured in the gallery below)? What about a Samsung Gear 2, or a Gear Fit? Let us know in the comments section. And do keep in mind that, although pre-orders are available from this month, all these new Samsung devices will be properly released only starting April 11.

Again a gallery of 26 photos in a S5 article?
PhoneArena better start adding galleries to every article that mentions a phone or stop loving Samsung!

26 photos for a phone that's supposed to sell 10 times the competition so yeah 26 photos and you get 2.6 photos/article for your htc/nokia/sony/lg and all other wannabe brands. Get a life.

I honestly want the S5 just for the somewhat significant changes they've made in the display. I also like the new design a lot too. I won't jump on the bandwagon technophiles like to, in fact, I find those HTC and Sony phones aesthetically unattractive.

That hardware button kills me, rest of the looks are negated by a eight dollar case.
Looks aside, the power to convince or concede lies beneath that which most argue.
Could be a sleeper, or just sleepy.

Ugliest flagship phone of 2014. I have a really hard time seeing this sell as much as S4 did which actually looked pretty sexy when it came.

waiting for lg g3 with waterproof,extra thin bezel and more more more

The more I look at this phone the more attractive it becomes. I gotta say it actually not that bad. There was nothing wrong with the s4 design except for the back Which they fixed and I loved the perforated back of the nexus 7 so the feel in the hand should be pretty comfortable

Not to talk trash about the hardware of the phone or watch, but both are incredibly ugly devices. What was Samsung thinking???
