You can pretend not to know this, but the Samsung Galaxy S5 is one of the most awaited phones of the year and it has been launched in India today at Rs 51500 for its 16GB capacity, the same day on which the device also sees its release in 125 of the globe including the US, the Middle East, Europe, many Asian countries and Latin America.
Apart from letting its next generation flagship into the market, Samsung also unleashed the Gear Fit, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches. The Galaxy S5 is being packaged as a fitness companion too so that there’s enough reason to marry any of these Gear wearables to it.
