While most of the major U.S. carriers have had their Samsung Galaxy S5 pre-order pages up for a while now, Verizon is a bit late to the party and is just now setting their pre-order page live. While you can pre-order the handset now, Verizon has confirmed the handset won’t actually ship until April 11th.
The Galaxy S5 will be available in your choice of charcoal black or shimmery white for a price of $199.99 with contract — after a $50 mail-in rebate. For those interested in picking up the handset outright, it will set you back $599.99.
Regardless of how you buy the GS5, it’s worth noting that Verizon is holding a special promotion that will let you snag a second handset for free. For your free handset you’ll have the choice of another Galaxy S5, an HTC One (M8) or the Windows-powered Samsung Ativ SE, though you will have to sign a two-year contract for the second device as well.
