Yet another report hints Galaxy S5 could sell for less than Galaxy S4

Samsung Galaxy S5 Price

Could Samsung really sell the Galaxy S5 for just $400 off contract? Bloomberg reported earlier this month that Samsung was considering bowing to carrier pressure to slash the price of the Galaxy S5 and sell it for less than it charged for the Galaxy S4 when it first launched last year. Unwired View draws our attention to a new report from ZDNet Korea claiming that Samsung will knock around $100 off the price of the Galaxy S5 compared to the initial price of the Galaxy S4, although Unwired View notes that this price cut could only be for Korean customers who last year paid somewhere in the $890 range off contract for the Galaxy S4 when it debuted. Samsung hasn’t yet announced pricing for the Galaxy S5 so it’s possible that the company is still trying to decide or is still in negotiations with carriers over what it will cost. Either way, we won’t know for sure until Samsung gives us the official word.
