Samsung Galaxy S5

Prices range from €699-729 in eurozone, £550 in the UK

A few days after the announcement of Samsung's latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S5, SIM-free European pricing for the device is starting to emerge. A number of ourlets across the continent are starting to list the GS5 for pre-order: Clove has the 16-gigabyte GS5 up for pre-order at £550 including VAT, with the black and white versions shown as arriving April 11. Meanwhile rival retailer Unlockd-Mobiles has the phone listed for £549.98 in black, white and blue and due in stock the same day.

Amazon Germany and Spain have the 16GB Galaxy S5 available for pre-order for €699 and €729 respectively. The prices put Samsung's latest around the same price point as the Sony Xperia Z2, which sports similar internal specs and is due to go on sale in late March. Pre-order prices are subject to change as release dates approach, but nevertheless these numbers should give buyers a rough idea of how much the European GS5 is going to cost.
