Samsung has just launched the Galaxy S5 in India which will become available from 11th April. Samsung hasn't revealed its price but has stated that it will be available at a price pegged between Rs 51,000 and Rs 53,000. We'd get the octa core variant of the device instead of the Snapdragon 801 variant. Let us take a look at its specifications:
- 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels

The smartphone will go pre-ordering on 29th March and the final price will be revealed when it goes on sale.
