The Samsung Galaxy S5 was finally announced that the Mobile World Congress and now it has started making it’s way to the European Preorder websites. AS is typical with Samsung, the South Korean technology manufacturing giant releases their goods in Europe first and in years past they seemed to always get the better processors. Same is the case here and the Preorders across the pound are set to arrive April 11th. It’s the price of these preorders that have got me a little shocked. UK-based Clove Technology has the SGS5 for sale at a price of £550 GBP, includes all local sales tax. In US Dollars that’s a whopping $920 for the 16GB version! The Spanish supplier to Amazon has the SGS5 for €729, or approximately $1005 USD which would make you basically bat shit crazy to pay that.
We are still not sure of the US release date or pricing but look for steeper than normal flagship premium of $650.00 and most likely in May.
