According to a report, Samsung has pushed a stability update out to the Galaxy S5, called software update version XXU1ANCE. It is said to be around 30MB in size, and it reportedly doesn't make any other major changes to the Galaxy S5 software. The update should install after users open retail units on day one, and presumably won't be preinstalled.
While the smartphone will also go on sale in India on Friday, the South Korean giant had already confirmed to NDTV Gadgets that the phone will be priced at Rs. 51,500. The company said this is the "best buy" price. Earlier on Monday a retailer claimed that the Galaxy S5 will be priced at Rs. 51,500 (MOP), while the MRP will be Rs. 54,300.
The retailer has further claimed that the Galaxy S5 will be available under a limited period cash back offer at Rs. 49,990 after 20 percent cash back on Citibank cards.
