Galaxy S III launched last week in London is expected to hit Indian market in the first week of June, 2012. As per unconfirmed reports, the starting price of this smartphone will be around Rs. 35,000, inclusive of all local taxes.
“The Galaxy S III will be launched in India in June,” said Samsung’s spokesperson, adding, “it will be launched very soon in India after its debut in Europe on May 29.”
The Galaxy S III has a 4.8″ inch HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It has an 8 megapixel rear camera with flash and zero shutter lag and a 1.9 megapixel front camera. Weighing 133g, the phone is only 8.6 mm thick. The Samsung Galaxy S III will have Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, operating system.
The new Galaxy is powered by Samsung’s quad-core microprocessor. The phone will come in three models – 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. Its connectivity options include WiFi a/b/g/n, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. As reported earlier, this phone is engineered with a plethora of interesting and innovative features.
We have blogged several times that none of the vendors of smartphones, have sold their smartphone under contract for one or two years, in India. This practice is quite popular in Europe and US and for strange reasons, has not been tested ever in India. We do hope that Samsung will be the first company to make innovation in its marketing strategy also and will be the first company to offer their new Galaxy S III in contract in collaboration with one of the reputed service providers.
This will help them get more buyers and buyers will be delighted to own this marvellous device by parting with only upfront payment. Hope, one day this mode of selling will start in India and may be with Galaxy S III!
