If you're tempted to get the Samsung Galaxy S5 when it launches in April, you'll be happy to know that some neat freebies are on the table as well.

While there were rumors suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy S5 may sport a lower price tag than the Galaxy S4 cost at launch, more recent information has indicated otherwise. Some retail listings have popped up for the Galaxy S5 with quite a hefty price tag, but nothing is confirmed for now. The company has yet to provide any official pricing details for the handset, but it has teased some tempting goodies.

What is confirmed is that the new Galaxy S5 will come with some notable freebies when it makes its commercial debut. Samsung has just announced that it will be offering several goodies with its flagship smartphone, and their collected value goes up to $575. Not everyone may be a fan of all of the things bundled, but free stuff never hurt anyone.

"Meaningful rewards from the world's top brands to make your GALAXY S5 experience even more enjoyable and productive," touts Samsung in its announcement. "From fitness to news to productivity apps, the Samsung GALAXY S5 comes with free, long-term subscriptions and premium services."

Samsung Galaxy S5 Freebies

There are various free things on the menu if you decide to purchase a Galaxy S5, so here's what Samsung has to offer:

First of all, those who get a Galaxy S5 will also receive a six-month free subscription to The Wall Street Journal, which normally costs $160. While not everyone may be interested, those who like to read news on the go may find this especially useful.

Samsung is also throwing in a free three-month subscription to Evernote Premium (worth $15), to LinkedIn Premium (worth $75), as well as 50GB of Dropbox sloud storage for six months (worth $60), among other things. The freebie with the highest value is the aforementioned $160 WSJ subscription, while the one with the lowest value is a $2 application called Flick Dat. The app allows users to create and share contacts with a simple flick gesture, or turn all of their contacts into stylized business cards.

These are just a few of the treats Samsung is offering with its Galaxy S5, but there are several others, as you can see in the image above. For the full list of freebies, check out Samsung's announcement.
