Research suggests Galaxy S5 price could fall by 24% in three months

Flagship smartphones in recent times usually launch with sky-high price tags attached to them, making many consumers wait for a few months so that they can purchase a particular device at a lower rate. Samsung’s flagships, like the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3, followed a similar trend wherein their prices dropped considerably a month or two after launch. According to data put together by UK price comparison firm Idealo, the same will be the case with the Galaxy S5 – the fifth-generation will see its price fall by 24 percent within three months after launch.

Idealo has based its prediction on the data on the previous three Galaxy S iterations. The Galaxy S III’s original launch price was affected the most after a few months of availability. The Galaxy S II and Galaxy S4 fared better, but still succumbed to the gradual decrease in prices; that, of course, is what we as consumers want to see happen, so if you’ve been saving up for Samsung’s highly anticipated upcoming flagship smartphone, you might just want to hold for at least a month or two before spending your hard-earned cash on the device (which might be rather difficult considering how awesome the Galaxy S5 is building up to be.)

So, 5.25 inch phone, quad-core or oct-core processor starts off at $800 or $900(non-contract price). Three months later, we see 5.5 inch devices with similar specs, and the price will drop due to the smaller screen.… Read more »

The Galaxy S2 was really amazing. In some cases you can find it at a higher price than the S3.
