The Samsung Galaxy S5 is still over three weeks away from launch and has already gone up for pre-order in many regions. However, there wasn’t enough clarity on the pricing of the smartphone. While contract pricing doesn’t differ every year, it’s the unlocked pricing that makes all the difference, especially in global markets.
And today, the smartphone has been officially priced in Taiwan. According to a new report, the smartphone will cost NT$22,900 ($747) in the region revealing that it won’t go easy on the customers’ wallets. We can expect the handset to be priced similarly in other markets of the world when it breaks cover on the 11th of April. The pricing doesn’t surprise anyone considering the pattern observed over the last few years.
A recent survey suggested that the Galaxy S5 would be considerably cheaper in about three months after its launch, which might affect Samsung’s initial round of sales somewhat. The smartphone has already generated plenty of interest back in the U.S. with T-Mobile reportedly registering large amounts of pre-registrations for the handset.
