Next flagship up for pre-order two weeks ahead of April 11 launch date

Samsung UK has revealed that the Galaxy S5 will be available for pre-order from Friday, March 28 — two weeks ahead of the global launch date of April 11. In the UK, the GS5 will be available from “selected retailers” as well as Samsung’s online store and the company’s flagship brick-and-mortar outlet at Stratford Westfield shopping center in London.

Meanwhile a seperate press release from Carphone Warehouse confirms that it’ll have the Galaxy S5 available for pre-order on March 28, too. Neither Samsung nor Carphone has pre-order pricing for the handset at present, but other outlets such as Unlocked-Mobiles show a £550 ($ 914) SIM-free price.
