Samsung Galaxy S5 with Exynos Octa chipset, didn’t do justice to its price tag and thus saw several price cuts right from the start. Samsung has perhaps realized the error of its ways and launched the Snapdragon 801 powered LTE variant of its Flagship phone , dubbed as Samsung Galaxy S5 4G, at the same launch price of 53,500 INR.
Other specifications are same as before. It comes with a delightful 1080p full HD super AMOLED 5.1 Inch display and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat based new and flatter touchwiz UI.
At the heart of it, you will find Snapdragon 801 quad core chipset clocked at 2.5 GHz, which arms it to rival other high end phones like HTC One M8 and upcoming LG G3. Other features include 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage and MicroSD card slot.
The rear 16 MP camera can record 4k videos and is matched by a 2.1 MP front facing camera for good quality selfies. Battery capacity is 2800 mAh and the phone will comfortably last one day with moderate usage.
Other features include LTE, two internal Wi-Fi antennas for faster Wi-Fi speeds, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and IR Blaster. Samsung is also offering free 5 GB 4G Airtel data for the first 2 months and a 10,000 INR upgrade offer for Samsung customers.
Samsung Galaxy S5 is more worthy of flagship status from a tier one manufacturer. Early adopters of Samsung Galaxy S5 might be disappointed a bit, as the LTE variant has been launched for similar launch price.
