It has hardly been a month since the release of the Samsung Galaxy E5 and E7 handsets in India, and the South Korean giant has already decided it’s time for a price cut. Cut-throat competition in the country’s market is most likely the reason behind this move, and prospective buyers of the two smartphones are its beneficiaries.
The Samsung Galaxy E5 which was launched at Rs 19300 is now going for Rs 17900, signifying a drop Rs 1400. The Galaxy E7 on the other hand was initially being offered at Rs 23000, and is now selling for Rs 20900, making it cheaper by a good Rs 2100.
These new asking amounts are applicable only for Amazon India at the moment, but other online and offline retail channels are soon expected to change their listings as well. Earlier today, Samsung also lowered the retail value of its 2013 flagship, the Galaxy S4 which can be bought now at just Rs 17900.
Devices from the new Galaxy E series offer slim body profiles, advanced Super AMOLED displays and 5MP selfie cameras with gesture and voice control. They are available in black, white and brown color options.
