Furthermore, Flipkart is also offering an exchange deal wherein prospective consumers who are ready to part their old handset can avail up to additional ₹8,000 cash discount. This means Galaxy S5 can now be bought for as low as ₹14,999 [HERE].

[Note: This is not the first Galaxy S5 price cut in India, the company had reduced the price to less than ₹35,000, soon after the launch of Galaxy S6 (& S6 Edge) in April early this year]

Samsung has not released any statement on Galaxy S5 price cut in India. We believe this is not an official price cut, but only exclusive to Flipkart, as other top e-commerce sites like Amazon India [HERE] and Snapdeal [HERE] are still selling Galaxy S5 for more than ₹30,500.
