Samsung’s Galaxy S5 has already received huge price cuts from online retailers in India and the OEM has finally given in and reduced the retail tags even further of the handset and its LTE version on the eStore. This is the second time the company has officially dropped the prices for the phones in the country and only in a span of two months.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 3G model is currently listed for Rs 37500, making it Rs 5750 cheaper than its previous price tag of Rs 43250. The LTE model on the other hand, has received a drop of Rs 4990 which brings its cost down to Rs 40300 from Rs 45290.
The previous reduction was carried out just last month and it’s probably to counter HTC and LG which are offering their flagship phones at under Rs 40000 as well. On the downside, the LTE model which comes in black and gold options is listed as ‘not in stock,’ while only the gold version of the 3G variant is currently available.
Considering that Samsung only recently updated its eStore with the new prices, it could be making perorations for a Diwali sale. If so, the reduced tags could be temporary, but we won’t know for sure unit the company goes on the record about the changes.
