While AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular began their pre-ordering process for the Samsung Galaxy S5 on Friday, T-Mobile has begun theirs bright and early this morning. T-Mobile will be shipping these pre-orders out around April 11th, as they stated “early April” but it appears that just about everyone is going to be selling theirs in store on April 11th, so it’s fair to assume that’s around the time pre-orders will get theirs. The T-Mobile Galaxy S5 variant will be on sale for $0 down and $27.50 per month if you want to sign a “contract”, yes I know it’s not technically a contract, but it is. If you want to buy the phone outright, it’s going to cost you about $660. Which is about the same price we’ve seen at AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular already.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 5.1-inch 1080p AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of storage along with a microSD card slot inside. It’s got all the high-end specs you’d expect, although we were looking for 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage internally by default since that’s what the Galaxy Note 3 launched with.
As for those on Verizon, well that’s the only carrier we haven’t heard anything from just yet. We’re thinking, that since they supposedly have this exclusive for a couple of weeks on the HTC One 2014, that we may not see the Verizon Galaxy S5 until after that exclusivity is over with. Which is surprising, I’d think it’d be the other way around. But then again, out of all the carriers, Verizon is the only one that can afford to piss off Samsung, because they aren’t going anywhere.
