AT&T has just announced the pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy S5 on its network. The flagship is going to cost $199.99 with a 2-year contract or $649.99 without an agreement. You can also opt for the AT&T Next plans - in that case the Galaxy S5 comes at $25 per month on AT&T Next 18 or $32.5/month with AT&T Next 12.
Naturally, the carrier will be also offering the newly announced Tizen-based smartwatches Gear 2 ($299) and Gear 2 Neo ($199), as well as the Gear Fit ($199) smartband. If you pair your Galaxy S5 order with Gear 2 or Gear 2 Neo smartwatch until June 5, you will get a $50 discount.
The pre-orders of the Galaxy S5 and its premium accessories start tomorrow, March 21, and will ship in early April. The official launch of the Galaxy S5 will be on April 11, as planned.
Today we told you the Galaxy S5 is expected to be about $100 cheaper than its predecessor at launch. Well, for AT&T this is not happening. Last year the US carrier has launched the Galaxy S4 for $199.99 with a 2-year contract, while the off-contract price was $640. Yes, pretty much the same as this year.
