We all know that Samsung had officially revealed its new flagship smartphone at MWC 2014, mentioning that its Galaxy S5 is supposed to launch in 150 counties all around the world and to start shipping out on April 11th. But until now we weren’t at all sure exactly how much this device would cost. As you probably remember, there have been rumors pointing out that Galaxy S5 should be cheaper than previous Samsung Galaxy versions, but we must tell you that it doesn’t appear to be the case at all. And we are saying that as long as the handset has been listed on both Clove and Amazon Spain, just as you can see in these photos:
Clove and Amazon Spain Offers
To be more precise, Amazon Spain has the 16GB built-in storage of this Samsung Galaxy S5 listed on its website for no less than €729.00 (£600 or US$ 1.006,07) with taxes included, while the UK-based retailer Clove has just listed the same device, but for a much affordable pre-order price tag.
We are only talking about £458.33 (or £550.00 after adding on the VAT) for the 16GB version with no contract included, which means that it is a little more affordable than Amazon’s Spain offer. But don’t leave aside the condition attached on this page saying that the “official price is to be confirmed”, so maybe Clove is just showing us a potential retail price which is about to be changed, not to mention that there is no word about the 32GB model.
More Expensive than Initially Speculated
As you probably remember, both Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 have been released around the $600 mark ($199.99 on contract), while Galaxy S4 was priced around $650-700 when it was launched last year. So the latest S5 version is not at all cheaper, but actually above the price range initially speculated, but who knows? Price strategies are different from one country to another, so maybe new pricing options are going to be revealed for all Galaxy S5 potential buyers.
