AT&T Announces Pre-Ordering For Samsung Galaxy S 5 And Galaxy Gear 2 Devices

Were you just about to upgrade your phone to something newer? Hold the boat, player. Before you proceed with your order, be advised that AT&T will begin taking pre-orders for Samsung's Galaxy S 5 smartphone tomorrow in the U.S. You can stop by AT&T's website or one of the company's retail stores to place your pre-order, and then hang tight until early April, which is when the Galaxy S 5 will ship out.

Pricing varies depending on which route you take. For example, you'll pay $25 per month with AT&T Next 18, $32.50 per month with AT&T Next 12, or $199.99 if inking a two-year service contract. Yet another option is to pay for the device outright and not have to worry about any commitments, though that luxury will set you back $649.99.

"AT&T continues to grow its leading device line and is proud to add the Samsung Galaxy S 5 to the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices, AT&T. "AT&T was the first carrier to deliver Samsung’s Galaxy family of devices to consumers in the U.S and we look forward to adding to the best selection of Samsung Galaxy models in 2014."

In case you're forgotten what the Galaxy S 5 brings to the smartphone table, Samsung's newest flagship device boasts a 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSD card slot with support for up to 128GB, 16MP rear-facing camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 2,800mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat.
