The Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7 were made official in India last month, and Samsung has now dropped the price of both handsets in the country, only a month after they went up for sale. The Galaxy E5 is now available for INR 17,900 from Amazon India, while the Galaxy E7 can be purchased for INR 20,900.
The two devices were originally priced at INR 19,300 and INR 23,000 respectively – it’s not exactly a huge price drop, but it should still be welcomed by prospective buyers considering these devices were somewhat overpriced when you take into account the market conditions in India. Earlier today, the Galaxy S4 also saw its price drop heavily in India, though that seems more like a move made in order to clear stocks of the device before the Galaxy S6 arrives in the market.
The Galaxy E5 comes with a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable internal storage, an 8 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera, and a 2,400 mAh battery. The Galaxy E7 has a larger display (5.5-inch), 2GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera, and a 2,950 mAh battery. Both devices run Android 4.4 KitKat and come with dual SIM slots, though using two SIM cards means foregoing expandable storage as one slot also doubles up as a microSD slot.
