Earlier today, HTC launched the One (M8) in India at Rs 49,900, which is lower than the launch price of the Galaxy S5. To counter it, Samsung has almost immediately slashed the price of its flagship, which is now available on Flipkart for Rs 46,881.
Samsung’s smartphones have always gotten a price cut after launching, but this is probably the first time it has slashed prices this early. It is clearly a reactionary move to the One (M8) pricing. There is currently no official word from Samsung, but the white color variant of the Galaxy S5 is now available on Flipkart for Rs 46,881, while the black color variant is still retailing at Rs 50,499.
