Samsung’s this years flagship model and the latest one in the Galaxy S series – Galaxy S5 will reach Indian stores today. After Note  this one has been one of the most priced Samsung phone as the price will be more than ₹51,500.  The company had already taken pre-orders since two weeks at Samsung India eStore – the company’s official online store.

S5

The price tag that currently assigned to this model might be disappointing to most Indian buyers since it is almost 25k difference between its predecessor S4 which is currently selling in the market. But after releasing a top model, Samsung usually offer a cheap alternative so we can expect an S5 mini soon with much less price tag and suppressed specifications too.

It’s time to note that the device that Samsung releases in India is not a 4G phone and it is not powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset. it is comprised of  two quad processors (1.9 GHz + 1.3 GHz) which is a bit similar to what we found as Exynos 5 processors in Galaxy Note 3 and Note Pro 12.2-inch tablet.

Verdicts from most o0f the tech analysis websites is that the new Galaxy S5 is  atop device with cutting-edge specifications and technology but there are also a talk that it doesn’t have that ‘WOW’ factor that could differentiate this smartphone from  its predecessors and competitors.
