AT&T to take orders Friday for new Samsung phone
NEW YORK (AP) — AT&T says it will start taking orders for Samsung's new Galaxy S5 smartphone starting Friday.
The phone will ship in a few weeks and will cost $200 with a two-year service agreement or $650 without a contract.
Samsung has said the phone will start shipping worldwide on April 11. Other carriers are also expected to carry it, though prices haven't been announced yet.
Announced last month at the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, the S5 will have a 5.1-inch screen, measured diagonally, and a 16-megapixel camera. The S5 will also have a fingerprint sensor to use in place of a passcode to unlock the phone or make payments through PayPal.
Samsung is the leading maker of cellphones, helped in part by the popularity of its Galaxy line.
