Samsung unveiled its Galaxy S5 smartphone for Indian consumers, who would have to wait for a while to get their hands on the latest Galaxy flagship in the country. Launched at an MWC event earlier this year, Samsung has tried replicating its success formula that pertains to the Galaxy series which in total has sold more than 35,000,000 units in India that includes the likes of Galaxy S, S2, S3 and S4.

As mentioned earlier during the official Galaxy S5 launch, it seems the company has stuck with same ideology of product design and left the innovation part solely on the likes of upgraded hardware, faster camera and some effective features. It sports a bigger 5.1 inch full HD Super AMOLED display at 1080 pixels. Samsung has managed to get it IP67-rated for water and dust resistance and just the like the Sony Xperia Z1, the S5 can be submerged in 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes at a time. The TouchWiz UI becomes a lot cleaner and less cluttered than the previous versions wrapped under Android 4.4 KitKat version.

Under the hood, India gets 3G variant Exynos octa-core model that is powered by set of quad-core chipsets. In terms of imaging, Galaxy S5 gets faster responsive 16 MP rear camera with LED flash that features host editing options on the device itself. Also, included on the S5 is the fingerprint scanner on the home button that accepts 3 finger prints, then you have heart rate monitor that specifically takes the reading from sensor at the back. 

Coming to the most crucial part, Samsung has decided to maintain suspense and price the Galaxy S5 between Rs 51,000 and Rs 53,000 taking the phone at par with Apple iPhone 5S which sells for Rs 53,500 (16 GB). For those who are not looking to wait till April 11 to buy the phone can pre-order the Galaxy S5 via Samsung e-store from 29 March onwards.
