Galaxy S5 goes on pre-order in Russia and Romania (updated)

Orange Romania has the Galaxy S5 on pre-order for €249 ($341) on a new two-year contract and €699 ($959) outright. Other sites erroneously mentioned that Orange Russia is listing the device, but we can confirm that it is Orange Romania that has the device on pre-order. That doesn’t mean that the Galaxy S5 has not surfaced in Russia. Samsung’s official Russian site has the device on pre-order for 29900 rubles (€600)($829). There is a difference of more than $100 between Samsung’s version and Orange Romania’s listing, which is strange considering that both are listed as unlocked versions of the Galaxy S5. Orange Romania is selling the Galaxy S5 in black, white and blue variants, with no mention of a gold version. Click here to go to Orange Romania to order the handset. Samsung’s Russian site on the other hand only lists the white and black versions of the device. To pre-order the Galaxy S5 from Samsung Russia, click here.

In addition to the Galaxy S5, Samsung Russia also has a registration form for the Gear line of wearables. The Galaxy S5 on both Samsung Russia and Orange Romania is listed as being available on April 11, which is the official launch date for the handset.

Update: The Galaxy S5 is available for pre-order in Sweden as well as the Netherlands. Both listings show that the device will cost somewhere around $1000.

Well, phones are always overpriced at carrier’s shops (Orange, Vodafone etc.). I got my Galaxy S4 for around 465 EUR in August 2013, but from a guy who God knows how got the phones from Germany. It has no warranty, of course, but I couldn’t care less (I’ve seen how the so-called engineers at Samsung Centre do their job). At that time, I think the Galaxy S4 still was >540 EUR in retail stores. An even weirder example is this: if you walk into one of Vodafone Romania’s stores you’ll probably see two Galaxy S4’s displayed in the shelf (same… Read more »

I don’t know why is everyone having so high expectations from Samsung. I don’t see others making a big change in their designs. IPhone looks almost the same since iPhone 4… HTC is exactly the same since HTC one, Sony z1-z2 exactly the same, LG same design. And none of this phones looks better than galaxy line except for HTC one (which is a non battery removable and that’s no good for me).

It is a shame that every single product arrives here in Romania with almost 50% increased price. In India the S5 price is even lower, 730$. I blame you Samsung! You sell us shitty overpriced products (Made in China, Vietnam, India or simply Made by Samsung?!). I have a Note 2 SHV-E250S korean version which is wow, much more better than a classical Note 2 N7100 made in I don’t know what ghost/pirate ship. Shame on you! And the S5 is a stupid joke in terms of design (just like S4) and just 16GB memory? Even my Note 2 has… Read more »
