Back in April, Samsung had launched its much celebrated Galaxy S4 in Indian market at Rs. 41,500 for the 16GB variant.
The phone, which was bound to compete with yet another flaghsip phone from a rival brand- HTC, went on to become a big hit among Indian users.
Just a week ago, Samsung unveiled its big-ticket flagship phone, the Galaxy S5, at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
Today, the Galaxy S4, a predecessor of Galaxy S5, is now available in India under Rs. 30,000. Yes, you heard it right. Online retailer ShopClues.com is selling the device at a price point of Rs. 29,199.
Major e-retailers in India have started offering the Galaxy S4 in India around Rs. 30,000, which is almost Rs. 11,000 less than the official MRP price offered in the official Samsung e-store. We're yet to hear an official word from Samsung India on a price cut.
Nearly a year after it was announced, Samsung appears ready to sell the Galaxy S4 at an affordable price bracket.
Earlier last week, Samsung announced a buy back offer for its high-end handsets, including the Galaxy S4. Under this special offer, Samsung will give a cash-back of Rs. 10,000 for the S4 in exchange for older phone.
Although the Galaxy S4 was launched in 2013; however, it continues to sell well in the emerging countries.
Last month, Samsung released Black edition Galaxy S4 with faux-leather back cover. The company continues to puch the Galaxy S4 in the emerging markets with cash-back offers and other schemes.
