AT&T has announced it will begin taking pre-orders for Samsung's latest mobile devices -- the Galaxy S5, Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit -- starting Friday.
The Texas carrier said it will sell the upcoming Galaxy S5 smartphone for $199.99 with a two-year contract. Users can also purchase the device through the AT&T Next plan and pay $25 per month over 26 months or $32.50 per month over 20 months. The device can also be purchased off contract for $649.99.
AT&T said pre-orders can be made online and at retail stores.
The GS5 features a 5.1-inch full 1080p HD screen and comes with 16 gigabytes of storage. The flagship phone also includes a 16-megapixel camera, runs Android 4.4 KitKat and uses a 2.5GHz quad-core processor.
Besides the new Samsung smartphone, AT&T said it will also begin selling the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches along with the Gear Fit fitness tracker.
The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo will sell for $299 and $199, respectively. The biggest difference between the two smartwatches is that the Gear 2 comes with a camera.
AT&T said customers who buy a GS5 can get $50 off the purchase of the Gear 2 or Gear 2 Neo.
Samsung will also sell the Gear Fit for $199. That device includes a wide curved OLED screen, and the device is optimized for tracking users' daily activity. It will put Samsung in direct competition with Jawbone and FitBit in the fitness tracking market.
AT&T said the devices will begin shipping in early April. Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint have not yet announced pricing nor pre-order dates for the upcoming devices.
