Samsung’s just-unveiled Galaxy S5 will land in stores on April 11th, the phone-maker confirmed at the device’s launch tonight.

UK carriers and shops have launched pre-registration schemes for the handset, giving would-be buyers the chance to circumvent the supply shortages that seem to blight the launch of new smartphones.

EE, Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U were all quick off the mark with pre-registration. Sign up for any of these and you’ll be notified and kept updated about availability and stock levels.

EE, which appears to be going hell for leather to push a phone that’s tailor-made for its super-fast network, promises to offer pre-order customers what it described as a "exclusive incentive", but didn’t elucidate further.

That’s on top of inclusive roaming calls and texts in 30 international destinations and 2 for 1 cinema tickets with the rebranded Orange Wednesday.

Vodafone and Three, conversely, have right now confirmed only that they’ll be ranging the S5.
