Samsung Galaxy S5 4G variant launched in India for Rs 53,500

Following the backlash from consumers for not launching 4G LTE equipped Galaxy S5 in India, Samsung has finally launched the Galaxy S5 4G in India with a price tag of Rs 53,500. The Galaxy S5 4G is powered by a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974 Pro) processor which has inbuilt LTE radio supporting up to eight LTE bands around the world. Other things include features like Download Booster which combines both MIMO Wi-Fi ac and 4G LTE, resulting in faster download speeds.

Other features including a 5.1 inch full HD Super AMOLED screen, 16MP ISOCELL camera, Android 4.4.2 KitKat, IP67 certification, IR blaster, heart rate monitor and fingerprint sensor are present, similar to the original Galaxy S5. Samsung should’ve launched this device instead of launching the Exynos powered Galaxy S5 in India. Slowly but surely, smartphone manufacturers are releasing 4G LTE equipped smartphones in India. We have already listed all the smartphones which support 4G LTE in India.

Whether it supports LTE at 1800MHz (recently auctioned Liberated spectrum – which is going to be used by Vodafone, Airtel to launch 4G LTE after nov) ? If NOT, then it is a useless even if it will be on sale for 35000 within couple of months, imho…

I own a Nexus 5 , which comes built in with LTE support . So I’m future proof already & besides I hate the strategy which Samsung has towards India . Rest of the world gets SnapDragon Processors where as India gets Exynos which is not equal to SnapDragon Processor.

I also hate tochwiz interface . I think we must really start banning Samsung phones in India until they get SnapDragon Processors in almost all their Mid , High segment phones

If you have bought your Nexus 5 from India then it won’t support LTE
