The Samsung Galaxy S5 release date is seemingly set in stone for April 11, barring some unforeseen disaster, but what everyone wants to know is: how much will it cost?
The world’s number one mobile manufacturer is keeping shtum for now, while unofficially the Samsung Galaxy S5 price is rumoured to be anything from cheaper-than-the-Galaxy-S4-was-at-launch to £600.
Looking at UnlockedMobiles.com for starters, they’ve set the Samsung Galaxy S5 SIM free price at £599.98, which is either a guess, or they’ve managed to get the jump on countless other retailers, including Amazon. Ahem.
For the record, Expansys is accepting pre-orders, too, though it doesn’t care to state Samsung Galaxy S5 price just yet.
Over on Samsung’s home turf, ZDNet Korea says the manufacturer would like to set the Galaxy S5 price lower than that of the Galaxy S4 at launch. It’s not clear if carriers would bear the brunt, or if this is specific to South Korea, but in any case, negotiations are reportedly ongoing.
Interestingly, Bloomberg has said previously that Samsung would like to set the Galaxy S5 price lower than that of the Galaxy S4. There’s definitely a lot of smoke here, but we’ll have to wait a few weeks to find out if there’s fire.
