Samsung announced the much-awaited phablet, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, along with the groundbreaking Samsung Galaxy Gear at IFA in Berlin. The phablet is slated for launch by the end of this month for several countries. Now, the Korean giant launched the device in India for ₹49,900 ($790) along with Galaxy Gear that would cost a whopping ₹29,900 ($473).
The Indian variant of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will come with Exynos 5 Octa processor along with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display sporting 1080p resolution. Other specifications include 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage with microSD card slot, 13 megapixel camera, 3,200 mAh battery and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box.
The price of both these devices might be considered high by normal users in the country. There are many other low-cost alternatives available in the market such as MicroMax and Lava. So, Samsung might have a tough time selling its flagship phablet, especially Samsung Galaxy Gear that comes with an expensive price tag.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear will go on sale starting September 25th.
