Samsung Galaxy Express 4G LTE in India : Release date, full specs and priceAfter the 5-inch Galaxy Grand phablet, Samsung is now coming up with yet another Android Jelly Bean smartphone, dubbed as Samsung Galaxy Express. The most important thing in this is the 4G LTE support. So far, only Airtel provides 4G in India and is presently available only in 3 major cities: Kolkata, Bengaluru and Pune. But 4G LTE service is about to expand to all the states in India by the end of 2013. Galaxy Express will get good number of buyers for sure and the good thing is that, it comes with a price tag that is affordable. And sometimes you may get confused with the name Galaxy Express and you may have heard of it earlier. This is because Samsung has released its AT&T version earlier, which was available only in US. Both of these two have only slight differences not only in specs, but also in looks!

And it resembles the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini in many ways and a brief comparison between these two is given at the end of this article. It is expected to be launched in India in the first week of April. Full specs are given below.
