Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy S5-LTE Receive Major Price Cuts in India
Samsung seems to have quietly slashed the price of its flagship smartphone in India, the Galaxy S5, alongside the LTE-variant of the handset.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is now officially available at Rs. 43,250 on the company's online India store, compared with the Rs. 51,500 price the smartphone was launched at - a price cut of Rs. 8,250. The Samsung Galaxy S5-LTE is now available at Rs. 45,290, down roughly Rs. 8,150 from its launch price of Rs. 53,448.

As of now, it is not clear whether the massive price cuts of Rs. 8,250 (Galaxy S5) and Rs. 8,158 (Galaxy S5-LTE) is part of a limited period offer or is a permanent one.

It's likely that the South Korean company is preparing the ground for the launch of its latest phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which was unveiled at IFA. Earlier on Monday, Samsung revealed pricing of its Galaxy Note 4 to be EUR 699 (about Rs. 54,500) including taxes in Germany.
