I still need the reassurance of a familiar brand before it's a real story - Tony Maddox, CNN senior VP
UK MOBILE OPERATOR Three has revealed its pricing pricing details for the Samsung Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit wearables, alongside its pricing for the Galaxy S5.
While it has yet to start taking orders, Three has announced that it will soon start selling the Samsung Gear Fit and Gear Neo 2 wearable devices, with both set to fetch £199 when they go on sale, likely alongside the Galaxy S5 on 11 April.
Three also announced that it will kick off Samsung Galaxy S5 pre-orders on 28 March, and said on Tuesday that it will be available for £69 on a choice of four different tariffs. These include a £38 contract that includes 600 minutes and 2GB of data, and a £44 contract comes with unlimited minutes and all you can eat data. However, as of today, this won't included unlimited tethering.
Three will sell the Samsung Galaxy S5 in black, white and blue flavours, with Vodafone having announced this week that it will exclusively offer the black model.
Sylvia Chind, head of devices at Three said, "Partnered with Three's fast 4G network available at no extra cost, additional features such as the Galaxy S5's download booster that uses both WiFi and 4G to increase data speed, means you are no longer confined to your desktop when downloading large files. Altogether making this Samsung smartphone the most feature-rich customer experience yet."
The Samsung Galaxy S5 was unveiled at Mobile World Congress last month, with the firm touting the handset's fingerprint sensor, heart rate monitor and improved battery as its standout features. It also boasts a 5.1in HD 1080p screen, a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, an improved 16MP rear-facing camera and the Android 4.4 Kitkat mobile operating system topped with an updated version of Samsung's custom user interface.
