Theis now available to pre-order in the UK -- but expect to splash out plenty of cash if you want to own Samsung's heart-rate-monitor-sporting flagship.
As of this morning, UK retailers will let you pay for the S5, ahead of its official release on 11 April. High-street phone shop Phones 4U says the S5 will be free upfront from £47 per month on a 4G tariff, and can be acquired SIM-free for the wince-inducing price of £570.
Phones 4U is also(as demonstrated by the photo above), giving you a chance to play with the phone and check out some of its features before throwing down your money.
Carphone Warehouse has also thrown open its pre-order doors, promising the Galaxy S5 from £42 per month with no upfront cost (that example tariff is a 3G, 24-month Vodafone contract that nets you 3GB of data, unlimited calls and unlimited texts). Carphone's SIM-free option costs a wallet-petrifying £580.
That's even more expensive than the monstrously pricey, which starts at £549. For your money Samsung gives you a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, a 5.1-inch display, a heart-rate monitor, a fingerprint scanner -- and it's water resistant to boot.
