Samsung Galaxy S5 could cost as much as $1000 in Europe

Samsung's Galaxy S5 wont be available for several more weeks, but today we got a glimpse of what it could retail for. Thanks to a leak from the UK's Clove Technology, one of the EUs largest online suppliers, it appears that the Galaxy S5 will cost around $920 USD for the 16GB model, which escalates it into a pricing category higher than Apple's iPhone 5S.


A second leak from Amazon's spanish division has listed the Galaxy S5 on pre-order for $729 euros, putting it right in that $920 USD price range. The site is also listing the 32GB model for just over $1000 which prices the phones higher than ever before. Hopefully these are highly inflated prices designed to get the most out of early adopters. If not, then Samsung may have shot themselves in the foot as the Galaxy S5 is not much of a departure from the Galaxy S4. It does have new features like a fingerprint reader, better screen, and a heart rate monitor, but none of that garners a 50-percent price increase.
