It’s just a month after official launch, and the price of the handset has been significantly reduced by 10,000. Last month, the Galaxy S5 arrived with a price tag of Rs 51,500 and is still available for the same amount at the company’s online retail store. However, on Snapdeal, the device has been spotted for Rs 39,925.
In fact, less than a fortnight after the Galaxy S5 was launched, Samsung had issued a press release stating that the official price of the smartphone remained unchanged. This was done after its price had dropped on e-commerce sites by several thousand rupees.
This is the first time it has been seen that the prices of the Samsung’s premium flagship have been significantly reduced so fast after launch. Last week, the device was available for a lowest price of Rs 42,500. And just three days after the launch the price was slashed to 47,500.
However, on the Samsung online retail store, the Galaxy S5 is being still sold for Rs 51,500 with various buy-back offers included.
