Samsung Galaxy S5 is finally here. But the phone costs at least Rs 51,000 and could be as high as Rs 53,000. The other catch is the fact that the phone launched in India is not powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 and would not be a 4G phone. The version being launched in India is powered by an octa-core processor combo (quad 1.9 GHz + quad 1.3 GHz) which seems to be similar to the Exynos 5 processors on the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Note Pro 12.2-inch tablet. Samsung also launched the entire new Gear range along with the Galaxy S5. The Gear 2 is priced at Rs 21,900, while the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit are more affordable at Rs 15,900.
