Update (April 24): Samsung today issued a statement noting that it has not reduced the price of Galaxy S5 in India from its end, however you can still grab the phone from e-retailer like Flipkart for less than the official MOP of INR 51,500.
Earlier: Like most high-end smartphones from the company, Samsung Galaxy S5 has seen a price-correction within days of the availability in the Indian market. Samsung Galaxy S5, which was released in the country for INR 51,499 on April 11 along with rest of the world, is now available for just INR 46,831 at e-retailers like Flipkart.
The price-cut was first seen over the weekend but the price was futher decreased earlier today, probably in the anticipation of the HTC One (M8) launch in the country. HTC One (M8) will retail for INR 49,900 in India, which is less than the launch MOP of Galaxy S5.
We expect the Galaxy S5 pricing to go down further over the new few weeks and will probably settle around INR 43,000.
To remind you, Samsung Galaxy S5 is the current flagship smartphone from the company and comes with specifications like 5.1-inch FHD Super AMOLED display, Exynos 5 octa-core processor, 16MP rear camera, KitKat and 2GB of RAM. It will be competing with HTC One (M8) in the country, which seems like a much better offering.
Any idea about Note 3 rate cut in coming dayz?
Probably not, but they will when Apple announce their version of Phablet.
The iphone 6 is already rumored to be $100 more expensive even in the US of A, where they’re usually the cheapest. The highest end 5S variant already costs 72K here ($1200). So the 6 will probably be priced close to the 80K mark, meaning the phablet will probably flirt with the Lakh barrier if not actually breach it! *WTF*.
So basically, SS, LG, Sony, HTC etc. won’t have to worry a whole lot for their Note 3, G2 Pro, Z Ultra, or One Max respectively on that front, I don’t think.
This is nothing ….roar by lion (HTC) shakes the plastic(samsung) people
It should drop the price because of its useless fingerprint reader. Samsung never did a right thing the first time.
