Samsung Galaxy S5 price dropped in India by Rs. 5,050, now retailing for Rs. 46,450
Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 in India last month and starting from April 11, the smartphone was available across the country. Samsung Galaxy S5 was priced at Rs. 51,500 at the time of launch, and weeks after the launch the smartphone is now available from India's leading e-commerce site Flipkart for Rs. 46,450 (updated), which is Rs. 5,050 less than the launch price.
It looks like Samsung lowered the price of Galaxy S5 because of the launch of HTC One (M8) in the country. HTC has launched the One (M8) in India earlier today for Rs. 49,900. One more price-cut and Galaxy S5 will become the best phone available in the market for around Rs. 42,000.
