Now Sprint has finally made their plans known about the Samsung Galaxy S5. Yesterday, we heard from AT&T, T-Mobile and US Cellular about pre-orders and and when the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available from them. Now it’s Sprint’s turn. This morning the nation’s third largest carrier announced the Galaxy S5 price, which is $199 on a new 2-year contract – of course that’s after a $50 mail-in rebate – or $649 if you want to buy the phone outright. However, if you prefer Sprint’s Easy Pay, you can grab the Samsung Galaxy S5 for just $0 down and monthly payments of $27.09.

The Sprint Galaxy S5 will be available on April 11th, and similar to AT&T and US Cellular you can pre-order yours today. Sprint is also offering a nice promotional offer with the Galaxy S5. For a limited time if you purchase a Samsung Galaxy S5 on a Sprint Framily Plan with Easy Pay, you’ll get a free Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. Which also comes with a data plan and a two-year agreement. So it’s not really free. It also doesn’t seem like much of a deal either since the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is close to a year old already. But nonetheless it is a “free” tablet.

Sprint has also announced the colors that they’ll have available, which are Charcoal Black and Shimmery White. I have no idea why Samsung can’t just name their colors regular names like black and white. We’re assuming that Sprint also only has the 16GB model at launch, although they were not specific. Remember the Galaxy S5 does support microSD cards up to 128GB, so you’ll have plenty of space as well.

Of course, we couldn’t leave out Sprint Spark. Yes the Samsung Galaxy S5 will also be able to take advantage of the Sprint Spark network, which they are rapidly expanding to more and more markets. Which is definitely nice to see.

So how many of our Sprint readers are going to be picking up a Galaxy S5 from Sprint? Be sure to let us know in the comments down below.
