The Korean giant at the event revealed that the smartphone will go on sale on April 11th globally.

Samsung will also showcase the newly announced Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit at the event. Samsung will only announce the pricing and availability details of Galaxy S5 at the press event, with actual sales will begin from April 11th.
