Samsung Galaxy S5 will today be available in the Indian market at a price of Rs. 51,500. It was a couple of weeks back when the company started taking pre-orders for the flagship smartphone. Do you think the price is way too much? Samsung believes that it has other alternatives available which can be taken up by the customers who are unable to afford Rs. 51,500.

To the surprise of the Indian smartphone users, the Galaxy S5 launched in India does not house the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, thereby eliminating it from the 4G category smartphones. The Indian version is powered by an octa-core processor combo (quad 1.9 GHz + Quad 1.3 GHz) which is similar to that running in the Note Pro 12.2-inch tablet and the latest Galaxy Note 3.

The good part here is that the newly launched Galaxy Gear range and Gear Fir band will also be made available in the market along with Galaxy S5. While Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit are priced economically at Rs. 15,900, the Gear 2 is priced at Rs. 21,900. The company believes that a lot more users might be interested in these wearables now.

What’s your take on the pricing?
