Sprint confirms April 11th release date for the Samsung Galaxy S5; pre-orders start today

The nation's third largest carrier, Sprint, is starting today to accept pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S5. After a $50 mail-in rebate and a signed two-year contract, the Galaxy S5 will set you back $199.99. The price of the device sans contract is $649 and those using Sprint Easy Pay will be asked to cough up $27.09 monthly for 24 months. The Samsung Galaxy S5 does support Sprint's tri-band Sprint Spark network, which currently offers download speeds as fast as 60Mbps.

The phone will be released April 11th, says Sprint, and is available in Charcoal Black and Shimmery White. For those who banded together with 9 complete strangers, or family or friends to create a Framily plan account, the mobile operator will toss in a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 tablet. To get the tablet, you will need a data plan for it and you will be asked to affix your signature on a two-year pact.

Matching the other carriers offering the devices, Sprint is also accepting pre-orders for the Samsung Gear 2 ($299.99) and Samsung Gear 2 Neo ($199.99) smartwatches, both powered by Tizen. And for $199.99, you can reserve a Samsung Gear Fit health tracking wrist band.
