One of the most hyped smartphones for this year Samsung Galaxy S4 is now heading to India. However, the strategy of smartphone vendors has now changed; they have started considering India as one of the most important smartphone markets. The reason is quite obvious that India is now the world’s second biggest market in terms of mobile subscription, and expected to rank third in terms of smartphone subscriber base by 2017. Undoubtedly, there’s a huge scope for smartphone vendors to create cash hoard in the country.

TechOne3 has reported that Samsung Galaxy S4 might hit store shelves in India on May 1, 2013. It should be understood that the source doesn’t enjoy great history of such exposures, but Samsung’s earlier launch strategies with Galaxy range smartphones boil down to launch in May only. More importantly, Tradus has already started taking pre-orders for the device, but users could get their hands on the device from May 1 onward. The online retailer (Tradus) is offering two variants –16 GB and a 64 GB versions–of the Samsung Galaxy s4. Besides, the 16 GB version will be available in two colors—Black Mist and Frost White colors—while 64 GB version would be launched in ‘Frost White version’ only. For initial orders, users have to pay an amount of INR 999. However, the amount (INR 990) will be deducted from the total amount at the final payment of the device.

Pricing of Samsung Galaxy S4:

According to the source, the 16 GB model of Samsung Galaxy S4 would cost INR 45,000, however, we’re still little-bit skeptical about the pricing of the device. It’s said that Samsung is yet to announce the price of the device officially. Still we haven’t found any information related to the pricing of the 64 GB model. This time, the main competitors of the device in India are Sony Xperia Z/ZL, HTC One and Apple’s iPhone 5.


Just few days before, we mentioned that Sony Xperia Z would cost INR 38,990 and Xperia ZL would be available at the price tag of  INR 36,990. On the other side, the HTC One is expected to hold price tag starting from INR 40,000. In context of Apple, its smartphones have always been holding the premium price tags. But this time, Apple’s new strategy has pushed the shipments of its iPhone across the country; the iPhones have seen 400% growth in shipments over the last three months.

In comparison to existing Android-powered high-end smartphones such as HTC One and Sony Xperia Z/ZL, the price of Samsung Galaxy S4 is little high. It’s really tough for anyone to deny with the importance of pricing for the success of any device. But we shouldn’t forget that Samsung is still the dominating player in India, accounting for 38.8% of smartphone market share in the country.

Samsung Galaxy S4 In IndiaHardware and Software:

We have already mentioned the specifications of Samsung Galaxy S4, and described how the device is better than HTC One and Sony Xperia Z in terms of hardware and software. In addition, this time, Samsung has decided to launch the Galaxy S4 with variant processors, Octa-core Exynos 5 chip and Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, those would vary region-wise. As far as the processor is concern, Samsung Galaxy S4 would sport first the Octa-core Exynos 5 chip in India, followed by the Snapdragon 600 version coming later this year.
