After the details on the internal and external specs were revealed for the Samsung Galaxy S5, the next step was to unveil the plans for its availability for the US market. The new Samsung flagship is going to make an appearance in the States by April and as many rumors had it, the Samsung Gear will be launched alongside this phone.
The list of all the carries which are going to officially carry the new flagship device by Samsung in the US is quite extensive and considering the popularity and the fame of the phone, this shouldn’t be coming as a surprise. We have a confirmation on some of the carries which include AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, MetroPCS, and U.S. Cellular.
Now comes the next big question; who is going to shelf the most highly anticipated product of the year? This list obviously constitutes of the major retailers in the country including BestBuy, Amazon, Costco, and RadioShack. The Samsung Gear on the other hand will easily be made available through routine retail channels and also the carriers.
There has been no official statements regarding the price as yet but we are expecting the phone to fall somewhere between a price tag of $199.99 with a two-year contract.
