AT&T Now Have Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and Gear 2 Line Up for Pre-Order

Samsung’s latest and greatest flagship, the Galaxy S5, was announced back in February during Mobile World Congress and since then, Samsung fans throughout the US have been wondering how much it’ll cost, and when they get their hands on it. The same can be said for the new Gear 2 lineup of devices, running Tizen instead of Android and featuring the Gear Fit, a new fitness-focused wearable that works perfectly with the Galaxy S5. Both the Galaxy S5 and the new line of Gear wearables are going on sale in April, but AT&T has started the ball rolling with pre-orders here in the US.

Starting with the Galaxy S5, Samsung’s latest is available for an upfront cost of $649.99, as well as the regular $199.99 with a two-year contract. AT&T’s Next plan is available for the Galaxy S5 as well, allowing you to spread the cost of the device out over a certain period of months as well as upgrade early. Only Black or White color options are available for pre-order right now, though. Moving on to the Gear 2 line and both the Gear Fit and the Gear 2 Neo (the more affordable smartwatch) are available for $199.99, respectively. Meanwhile, the full-fat Gear 2 is up for pre-order for $299.99, too.

All of Samsung’s new toys are slated to ship April 8th from AT&T if you pre-order, which is a little sooner than the April 11th release date we’ve been hearing for some time. Despite shipping a little earlier however, there’s no guarantees your device(s) will get to you before April 11th. They should however be with you on the day of release. AT&T have laid out some pretty standard options of the Galaxy S5 here, which is pretty much what we expected, and at $649.99 the Galaxy S5 is just as expensive as we thought it was going to be. However, this isn’t the most expensive smartphone we’ve ever seen hit shelves at AT&T. You can pre-order your Galaxy S5 at the source link below, let us know if you took the plunge in the comments!
