“The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 supports Indian 4G networks and is expected to launch with a bundled data plan”
According to a report by The Economic Times, Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy Note 4 flagship in India within two weeks. Samsung India’s VP for Mobile & IT, Asim Warsi, told the publication that the Galaxy Note 4 will go on sale in India before Diwali. As per the report, Samsung will follow its global pricing model for the Galaxy Note 4 and could price it between Rs 50,000 to Rs 56,000 in the country. The company recently started taking pre-orders for the phone in its home market for around $920, which roughly converts into Rs 56,500.
For a recap, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was announced at IFA 2014 alongside the Galaxy Note Edge. It is designed to offer better durability than the last year’s Galaxy Note 3, thanks to its metallic frame. It flaunts a 5.7-inch QHD (2K) resolution display. The new Note is powered by an Exynos 5433 octa-core processor, paired with 3GB of RAM. It comes in 32GB and 64GB storage variants, with the option to further expand it by 64GB via a microSD card. In terms of cameras, it has a 16MP shooter at the back with Optical Image Stabilisation and a 3.7MP front snapper. Similar to the Galaxy S5 (review), the Note 4 also features a heart rate monitor at the back. It packs in a 3,220mAh battery with a fast charging feature that charges it up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. The device also comes with an enhanced and feature-loaded S-Pen stylus.
The Galaxy Note 4 supports 4G LTE networks in India and is likely to launch in the country bundled with 4G or 3G data plans. Samsung tied up with Airtel to offer 5GB of free 4G data for the first two months with the recently launched metal flagship, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha (first impressions).
