The wait for the Samsung Galaxy S5 finally comes to an end. This new flagship smartphone from the Korean firm is going to be available worldwide starting Friday. The MRP of the Galaxy S5 is Rs 54,300. However, as reported earlier, the best price listed on the official Samsung eStore is Rs 51,500. The phone is listed on Flipkart for Rs 53,499.
At a store in Gurgaon earlier on Friday, Samsung started handing over the phones to those who had already pre-booked the Galaxy S5. However, the devices are yet to reach the Samsung stores across the city. A few Samsung stores we checked with said they are expecting the units to reach them by the evening.

It is powered by an Exynos 5 octa-core SoC with 1.9GHz A15 quad-core and 1.3GHz A7 quad-core processors coupled with 2GB of RAM and runs Android KitKat. It features a 4k-video ready 16-megapixel camera and is water resistant. The finger scanner has also been added along with a heartbeat monitor. The phone comes with an internal storage of 16GB and supports expandable memory card. It has a 2-megapixel front camera.
