Samsung has started taking pre-orders for its upcoming flagship smartphone, Samsung Galaxy S5, through a few online stores. The smartphone was launched on February 24 and is up for pre-order more than a month in advance of its release. However, there is a price variation for pre-orders in different countries.
French multinational telecommunications corporation Orange is accepting pre-orders in Romania for Samsung Galaxy S5 at a value of €249 (approximately $342) with two years contract and €699 (approximately $960) without contract and unlocked.
The newly launched smartphone can be ordered in Russia through Samsung’s official Russian site at a price of 29,900 rubles (approximately $829); however, the phone is available in only white and black variants, according to SamMobile.
There is a price difference of $100 in both countries. And the smartphone price in India through Saholic, an Indian online retailer owned by Spice Group, is much lesser and is available at 45,500 rupees (around $735). The smartphone price is ranging between €667.30 (around $915.47) and €729 ($1000) across Europe.
