Samsung Galaxy S5 pre-orders start in the UK on March 28
As the official release date for the Samsung Galaxy S5 approaches, get ready for pre-orders to go live pretty much across the world. In the UK, for example, you’ll be able to pre-order Samsung’s next flagship smartphone starting on March 28. The handset will be out globally on April 11, so you’ll have a pretty well sized window in which to pre-order – that is, if you’re sure you want to be among the first people in the world to own the Galaxy S5.
The pre-orders will be offered by “selected retailers”, Samsung’s e-store, as well as the Stratford Westfield Experience Store. Right now Samsung has a website up for the handset, through which you can register your interest and say whether you’d like to pre-order one when that will be possible.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 was announced on February 24 at MWC in Barcelona, and it comes with a 5.1-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, a 16 MP rear camera with LED flash and 4K UHD video recording, a 2.1 MP front camera, a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 150 Mbps 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, IR remote, fingerprint sensor, heart rate monitor, and a 2,800 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
