White Samsung Galaxy S5 gets price cut in India

White Samsung Galaxy S5 gets price cut in India
When the Samsung Galaxy S5 launched in India, it was priced at 51,990 Rupees without a contract ($860 USD). But on Monday, the HTC One (M8) was released in the same market for a price of 49,990 Rupees ($827 USD). With HTC undercutting Samsung in the battle of flagship devices, at least one Indian retailer has cut the price of the Galaxy S5 by at about 10%.

Now, the white version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is priced under the HTC One (M8) in India at Flipkart. The model is wearing a price tag of 46,450 Rupees ($767 USD). With the HTC One (M8) launching today in the world's third largest smartphone market, cutting the price of the Korean manufacturer's flagship model keeps some of the attention off of the just released HTC flagship.

The discounted white Samsung Galaxy S5 can now be ordered from Flipkart, and it is almost a certainty that the black model will also be discounted. If Indian retailers start cutting the price of the HTC One (M8) over the next few days, we could see a price war between the two models.
