It’s been a few days since Samsung Galaxy S5 went on sale in over 100 countries. You can even find the handset at a lower cost than what is being asked by the carriers across the globe — Amazon has the Verizon variant for $99 on-contract.
If you’re on Ting, a Sprint MVNO, has started taking pre-orders of the device for $597, which is slightly less compared to what other carriers are offering it for.
The carrier cannot sell the handset before Sprint, but the pre-orders have kicked off and it seems Ting customers don’t have to wait for a long time to get their hands on the device. If you pre-order your device, the expected delivery date is May 5, which is not too far away — almost three weeks from now.
Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a 5.1-inch display sporting a 1080p resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset with a clock speed of 2.5GHz, 16/32GB storage with a microSD card slot, 16MP camera for photos and videos, 2MP front-facing camera, a 2,800 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat as its operating system.
