AT&T is the first U.S. carrier to offer more details regarding the Galaxy S5 release, complete with pricing information. The carrier has started taking pre-orders for the smartphone on Friday, March 21, and pricing varies depending on whether you make your purchase on a two-year contract, under the AT&T Next plan, or contract-free for full price.

The AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 costs $199.99 with a two-year agreement, $25 per month with the Next 18 plan, or $32.50 per month with Next 12. Those who prefer to purchase the smartphone outright, meanwhile, will have to shell out $649.99. Despite opening up pre-orders and offering full pricing details, AT&T has yet to reveal when it will actually start shipping the smartphone. For now, the carrier only said that pre-orders will start shipping in early April, with no specific date. Head here to pre-order the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5.
