Much to the delight of fans in the UK, Samsung has let out an official word that the Galaxy S5 will be hitting pre-order status on March 28 through the company’s e-store and the Stratford Westfield Experience Store. Pricing still remains under the shroud, but we’ve got some retail values which can be considered right now.

According to what’s being said on the Internet, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be made available at a price between €600 and €700. This means its cost in the UK should hover around £500 to £600. These rates of course apply to the SIM-free models. Unlocked Mobiles has already listed the device at a price of £549.98. The S5 will be made available on-contract as well, through EE, Vodafone and Three at least.
