The Samsung Galaxy S5 release date is fast approaching, but for now customers can pre-order.
On Thursday, Mar. 20, T-Mobile issued a press release in regards to the pre-order status of the Galaxy S5.
The wireless network operator announced that it would be taking pre-orders for the highly anticipated smartphone starting Monday, Mar. 24. But, that's not all. Customers can even get the phone for $0 down!
"T-Mobile will be the only place to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S5 online and in-store for zero down (and 24 monthly payments) and with zero annual service contract, zero overages, zero hidden device costs, zero upgrade wait – and with the world as your network at zero extra cost," the press release said.
The announcement went on to explain the terms and conditions of the promotional discount. Payments for the phone would be made in increments over a 24-month period. However, there wasn't detailed breakdown of the costs in the press release. So here it is: Customers will be charged $27.50 over the course of 24 months, which totals $660.00 per smartphone, reports Tech Media Network.
John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile, also weighed in with his sentiments of the company's advertisement for the Galaxy S5. “This thing is so hot we’ve already seen over a half a million pre-registrations for the Galaxy S5,” he said.
“That’s a lot of very smart people grabbing this opportunity to pay nothing down, save more than a grand over the life of the other guys’ contracts, and have T-Mobile pay off every penny of their family’s early termination fees. It’s a brilliant move.”
T-Mobile also stated that those who pre-order by March 31 will receive "a special, introductory price and be among the first to get the Galaxy S 5 without waiting in line when the device launches in T-Mobile stores on April 11th – guaranteed."
