03_SM-G900F_electric BLUE_02As speculated earlier by many trade and technical analysts, Samsung will keep the price of Galaxy S5 less than its previous iteration Galaxy S4. But from the above price announced for Taiwan market, it appears that Galaxy S5 is going to be expensive than S4. The Galaxy S4 was launched in India at Rs. 41,500, in April,2013. As blogged by us earlier, when Galaxy S4 was launched then at that time the scenario of smartphone market was different. In the intervening period, many established vendors like LG,Sony and of late Chinese companies like Gionee,Lenovo etc., have become very aggressive and they have come out with several smartphones in different price range. These companies are going to pose stiff challenge to Samsung not only on price front but also on hardware features and customised applications. If Samsung has to attract maximum number of customers to possess its Galaxy S5 especially in price-conscious market like India then they will have to keep the price of S5 in check. In our opinion, the S5 should be priced around 40K to sell in large numbers. Let us wait for few more days to see how Galaxy S5 is priced in India.
