Before and after Samsung announced the Galaxy S 5 at MWC this year, multiple reports came along suggesting that the Galaxy S 5 would be priced lower than what’s expected for a flagship device. It was first believed that Samsung would lower the cost of the S5 in an effort to help carriers and avoid taking a huge loss on the devices. The other report, suggested that because the S5 was just a step up from the S4, a higher price point wouldn’t make sense.
Well, according to the Korean media, the S5 “factory price” is 800.000 won. That’s roughly $744. The Galaxy S 4 went for 890.000 won ($827) originally. That’s a price difference of $83.
It’s important to note that this is in just one area, and not official anywhere else. We have yet to see what Samsung is planning as far as pricing is concerned, but if this “factory price” is indicative of anything, we could see lower prices across the board. Would that be a deciding factor on picking up the Galaxy S 5? Let us now.
