The price of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has not been released at all in Indian market. Judging from reports of the media about the availability and price of Samsung Galaxy S 4 in various parts of the world, we can assume that Samsung Galaxy S 4 will be priced between Rs.43000 - Rs.45000. Since the mobile phones above the price of Rs.2000 have to bear an additional excise duty of 5 per cent, it is quite possible that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 will sell at almost the same price as that of iPhone 5 or a little less even though Samsung Galaxy S 4 has better features like 13 MP primary camera and 2 MP front facing camera with dual photo and dual HD video recording function than the 8 MP rear and 1.3 MP front facing camera of iPhone 5. The first time the price in the US market was leaked the phone was put at $579 (before taxes). Then Amazon put the phone for pre-order sale at around $850 yesterday and similar pre-order prices are popping up in the European phone markets. According to the latest news today, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is prices at $800 in the U.K. The Indian customers of Samsung need to wait for sometime until the haze over the price situation is removed and the price of Samsung Galaxy S 4 is revealed to the people. Even, after the price in India is revealed, the phone might sell at the announced price or little higher because there will be a great demand for the phone.
Samsung Galaxy S 4 in now available in India
PS. When I checked up the shopguide.in today (March 19, 2013), I found that the price of the phone is now known in India. Samsung Galaxy 4 was quoted lowest at kaunsa.com at Rs.43490 and was in stock. So, the estimated price given yesterday by me above proved to be right. I immediately placed the order for me by going to this shop and my order was through within minutes. The approximate delivery date has been given as April 3, 2013. The smartphone was also shown to be available at knottycart.com at Rs.43999 and maniac store at Rs.45000. However the phone was out of stock at both these websites. Anyone willing to buy this phone can do so at kaunsa.com before the stock is sold out.
