The Samsung Galaxy S5 was launched in India for a not-so-affordable price of Rs 51,500 and it’s now selling for Rs 500 less on the company’s online store. However, numerous e-retailers have given the device a huge price cut of around Rs 10,000, which is rather surprising considering that the phone was launched just last month.
Prices for the Samsung Galaxy S5 start at around Rs 40,000. On Flipkart, the charcoal black version is Rs 40,597, while the shimmery white option costs Rs 40,690. Snapdeal has the black model tagged a bit cheaper at Rs 40,319 and the gold and white shades at Rs 40,999 and Rs 40,258, respectively. All three options can also be picked up on Infibeam at Rs 40,899.
Samsung probably isn’t going to like the idea of its flagship phone getting a huge discount on online retailers and the company could reduce the price on its eStore as well, to match the others. The Galaxy S5 has been a hot seller around the globe, but it still has various shortcomings. The design is a bit dull and TouchWiz takes a noticeable toll on performance.
