Sprint too has officially confirmed that its going to offer the Samsung Galaxy S5. The carrier will release Samsung’s 2014 flagship on April 11th, the day it hits shelves in over 100 countries around the globe. Sprint Galaxy S5 pre-orders are already underway, though there is a slight caveat. To pre-order or “reserve” their Galaxy S5, customers have to visit a Sprint Store, apparently they can’t do it online. As soon as the device becomes available, customers who have reserved their units will be contacted by the carrier.
Sprint Galaxy S5 will be available for $199.99 with a new two year contract, after a $50 mail-in rebate. Qualified customers can also purchase the smartphone through Sprint’s Easy Pay program. In that case they won’t have to up any money up front and simply pay 24 equal monthly installments of $27.09 for the device. Relevant taxes will apply nonetheless.
The carrier is also going to sell the crop of wearables Samsung unveiled alongside its new smartphone. The Gear Fit activity tracker costs $199.99, Gear 2 Neo and Gear 2 smartwatches come with $199.99 and $299.99 price tags, excluding taxes. These devices will also be available from April 11th.
