Although Samsung has reportedly considered pricing the Galaxy S5 lower than it priced the Galaxy S4, new information posted by U.K.-based retailer Clove suggests that Samsung’s next big thing will have the same price as its last big thing, if not higher. SamMobile notices that Clove is now taking preorders for the device starting at “£499.99 (£599.99 after taxes), which comes out to around $1000.”
If you’re living in the UK and are intrigued by Samsung’s latest handset, we’ve got some good news for you. UK-based retailer Clove has listed the Galaxy S5 on pre-order for £499.99 (£599.99 after taxes), which comes out to around $1000. The price is for the 16 GB version of the Galaxy S5, with no mention of how much the 32 GB variant would retail for. Amazon Spain has also listed the 16 GB version of the Galaxy S5 for €730, which comes out to £600. The pricing is contradictory to rumors that indicated that Samsung was looking to offer the Galaxy S5 for lesser than what the Galaxy S4 cost when it launched last year. The Galaxy S4 debuted for around $650 to $700 across the globe, so it is theorized that this is the price point that Samsung is targeting with the Galaxy S5.
