Samsung fans in the US eager to get their hands on the Galaxy S5 users will be able to start pre-ordering the phone from US carrier AT&T starting from tomorrow.
While the telco didn't post an exact date on when the Galaxy S5 will begin to be in stock at its brick-and-mortar stores, web pre-orders will start shipping out in April.
US ustomers will be able to pick up the smartphone for outright for US$649.99, which is about AU$718.57, but for us folk living in Australia, we'll likely be slogged with a higher price when taxes are included.
We got our hands-on with the Galaxy S5 back at MWC 2014 and the phone was a quiet overall upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S4. The new Galaxy S5 features a slightly larger 5.1-inch 1920x1080 HD Super AMOLED screen.
Inside the phone is powered by a 2.5 GHz quad core processor paired with 2 GB RAM and 16 GBs internal storage. Slotting in a microSD card will expand the memory with 128 more gigabytes and the phone comes running Android 4.4 KitKat.
Samsung typical new little additions to the Galaxy phone also include a fingerprint sensor embedded into the screen and a built-in activity-tracking app called S Health.
On the back there's a 16-megapixel sensor paired with an improved phase detection autofocus system, which finds focus detecting if the light coming through the lens is in phase.
