Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is arguably the best phablet out there, however, this 2015 flagship will soon be replaced by an even better Samsung Galaxy Note 6 in a few months’ time.
In what seems to be an aggressive move by the South Korean tech giant in a bid to clear out its stocks, the company is now letting Indian dwellers part with just 1 Rupee in exchange for a new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 smartphone. For a phone that is worth hundreds of dollars, this is a very interesting move from Samsung.
Of course, this price is not the retail valuation of the Galaxy Note 5, rather, it is simply an upfront payment that is required before laying your hands on a new Note 5. This will be the best offer yet for an upfront payment package for a Galaxy Note 5 all over the world and it is part of the Make for India celebrations by Samsung India. These celebrations are based on the fact that Samsung was voted the most trusted brand in the country by the Economic Times.
One important thing you need to know is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 being offered here has a single SIM. The phone has a price tag of 42,900 Indian Rupees, however, the balance of the total cost is payable in equated monthly instalments at “no extra cost.”
There are even more goodies that come about depending on how you decide to pay for the Galaxy Note 5. In case you pay for the phone outright, there is an offer for 10% cash back on a bank-approved debit card or get the cash back on equated monthly installments (EMI) and non-EMI credit card payments. Since terms and prices might vary from state to state, it is important that you check before proceeding with the purchase.
Samsung Galaxy S6 also part of the deal
If you are not interested in the larger Samsung Galaxy Note 5, the same deal is also available for the flagship Galaxy S6. The phone has a price tag of 33,900 Indian Rupees and it can also be bought with an upfront payment of 1 Rupee.
These two phones were both released in 2015. While Samsung Galaxy Note 5 packs an Exynos 7420 SoC, 4GB RAM, 16MP snapper and has three storage options of 32, 64 and 128GB, the Galaxy S6 comes in with a similar Exynos 7420 SoC, camera and storage options, but with a smaller RAM of 3GB. In addition, the Galaxy S6 is smaller with its 5.1-inches of display compared to the 5.7-inches used on the Note 5. Due to its huge size, the Galaxy Note 5 also got a bigger battery unit of 3000mAh whereas the Galaxy S6 has 2550mAh.
Which deal is better? Have you paid anything lower than this upfront fee for a new phone?
