Samsung’s global tour hit Indian seashore today. As a part of Global tour India sees the launch of flagship product and self-proclaimed ‘World’s most human phone’ from smartphone ruler Samsung called Samsung Galaxy S3. The pre-order began much earlier than the actual launch which happened just few hours back. However, Samsung dropped a biggest bomb when they revealed the price of the device—Rs. 43, 180 that is. Usually, Samsung tags industries most competitive price as they directly compete with Apple iPhone and other android manufacturer.
The Galaxy SIII packs in mammoth 1.4 GHz Quad core processor running on latest Android ICS OS. Samsung has packed in some of the muscular hardware and software features in Galaxy S3 which makes it one of the fastest device till date. Samsung unveiled Galaxy S3 to the world at the beginning of this month. Later some of the exclusive software product like Flipboard, S Voice APKs were leaked to the public. Now with the price bomb, it would be interesting to see whether they manage to meet their preset target or not. We wouldn’t be surprised if people cancel their pre-order after today’s lost. However, they are in endanger of loosing their money.
Regardless of all the hype surrounded Galaxy S3 product, it wouldn’t be exaggerated if I say that it’s industries top class product so far (let’s not discuss HTC One X right now). However, the leaked exclusive APKs and now price could trigger in huge fall in sell of the product. On the other hand XDA community developers have managed to get Galaxy S3 root access (guide here), so you are in for a treat.
