It's no secret that the Samsung Galaxy S4 hasn't been exactly flying off the shelves. However, with the Galaxy S5, Samsung would hope to see better sales numbers as projected.
At the same time, the South Korean giant seems to be betting big on India. The much-hyped Samsung Galaxy S5 is coming to India on March 27. The firm has already started sending invites to media to attend the launch of Samsung Galaxy S5 in New Delhi.
The phone, which was first unveiled at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC), will likely to be made available in India by April 11. Moreover, at the same global event, Samsung announced its three new wearable devices: the Samsung Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit. All three wearable devices could be announced on March 27; however, there is no conformation on the same.
Just a day back, GizBot had reported that the Samsung Galaxy S5 might go on sale in India by April 15. In fact, the device is speculated to be price between Rs. 45,000 - Rs. 50,000. Rumor has it that the Galaxy S5 will sell for less than the Galaxy S4 did at launch.
