In line with our previous reports, Samsung seems to have started selling Galaxy R in the Indian market. Although the official launch announcement hasn’t come, we have reports from normal stores as well as online retailers like Flipkart that Galaxy R is finally in India.
But you will be disappointed to hear the pricing; it is being sold for INR 27,438, despite previous assumptions that company might price it aggressively. With this pricing, Samsung India is not giving consumers any reason for opt for Galaxy R over Galaxy S II, which can easily bought for fewer than 30K now.
Samsung Galaxy R differs from S2 in display quality, display size(not much), primary camera, video recording quality, thickness, internal memory and processor, but still the price difference between two devices is only 1.5K at max, if you can try you get Galaxy S II even cheaper.
Any takers for Samsung Galaxy R?
Thanks for the tip Kulbhushan.
