The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has been announced for release in India at a price of Rs 58300 even before it makes its debut in other important areas including the US, plainly showing how much capturing this market quickly means to the South Korean electronics company. Unveiled along with the Gear S smartwatch, this Samsung smartphone has been pegged at Rs 58300 and will be made available on October 17.
Running on Android 4.4 KitKat, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features a Quad HD Super AMOLED display of 5.7 inches. While Indian variants of the company’s phones usually ship with Exynos chips, it has decided to dole out the Galaxy Note 4 with a Snapdragon 805 SoC this time around, providing it with support for upcoming 4G LTE connectivity in the country.
October 17 is also the date on which the iPhone 6 models will be released in the nation by various retailers. The 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus which happens to be the biggest competitor to the Galaxy Note 4, has given Apple more to chew on because of the fact that the Samsung device has been priced lower than the starting Rs 62500 cost of the iOS smartphone.
