The Samsung Galaxy S5 that was priced at Rs. 51,500 originally on the official Samsung e-store can be brought for Rs. 46,400 via e-commerce sites like Flipkart and Snapdeal. However only the white model is available for the cutoff price and the Black variant of the this flagship is been priced at Rs. 49,999 on Flipkart and Snapdeal is offering it for Rs. 50,399 along with the Blue variant that is available for Rs. 51,099.
We have seen that the HTC One (M8) is priced at Rs. 49,990 and will be released in the first week of May. This offering of the Galaxy S5 from Flipkart and Snapdeal might be because of lack of sale of the White model or the pricing of HTC’s flagship can also be another reason.
According to a recent newsletter from eBay India, the MRP of the Galaxy S5 is expected to be Rs 54,300 while its being sold at a price of Rs 51000 and you can officially Pre-Order your unit by paying a advance amount of Rs 1500. The best part of the deal is that you get a additional cover when buying on the launch day but you cannot get the discounts which you would rather receive after a week post launch.
Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with 5 core elements which are Design, Camera, Speed, fitness and Life. Just like every Galaxy Fan, Galaxy S5 smartphone seems to be a truly revolutionary smartphone as it also comes with the Water resistant capability along with the state of the art latest specs. Galaxy S5 was initially showcased in the Barcelona in the MWC 2014 event. Along with the Samsung Knox, this device comes with the 3G capability and not with the 4G capability which is the sad part for all Indian consumers.
