New Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphones are seen on a display at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

One online retailer has announced on Facebook that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is already available for pre-order, just days after the unveiling of the smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The announcement also comes before Samsung launches its latest Galaxy S flagship in 150 countries, including the Philippines, on April 11.

Widget City says it will be selling the black or white quad-core/LTE variant of the handset at P32,990.

Recall that the Samsung Galaxy S4 was officially priced at P30,990 at launch, whereas its predecessor, the Galaxy S3 was valued at P32,990. Our "official Samsung Galaxy S5 SRP" guess is a sum between P32,000 and P35,000.

Take note that resellers that operate online have a tendency to undercut brick-and-mortar stores to remain competitive in the retail business. We still advise you to consider getting from the Korean giant's official retail partners for reliable warranty purposes.

Samsung's latest flagship phone features a 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display; a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip running at 2.5GHz; 2GB of RAM; Adreno 330 graphics; 16- and 2-megapixel rear and front cameras; and a removable 2,800mAh battery. You're also looking at a water-resistant plastic shell; a fingerprint sensor; and a heart-rate monitor; and the latest version of TouchWiz on top of Android KitKat.
