The Samsung Galaxy S III has officially landed in India, and will hit retail shelves by tomorrow, the 1st of June. Now that we know the availability, what remains is the pricing – Samsung has given the Galaxy S III (16GB version) a staggering MRP of Rs. 43,180.
Samsung will not be releasing the 32GB and 64GB variants of the Galaxy S III in India, but users looking for large storage capacities shouldn’t be too disappointed, as the S III supports microSDXC cards up to 64GB.
There’s no difference between the Galaxy S III unveiled at the global launch event at London in the first week of May, and the Galaxy S III that has been launched in India – there are no India-specific features. That of course, doesn’t stop the S III from being the iPhone-killer super-phone many of us have been waiting for , compared to the HTC One X . The One X recently received a price cut, and now bears an MRP of Rs. 36,100 – making it quite an attractive quad-core Android alternative.
Of course, Samsung is taking the title of iPhone-killer very seriously, and has given the S III a lot of smart features that take the iPhone 4S head-on. This includes the Apple Siri-competitor, S Voice, which recognizes natural language commands and can do dictation as well.
Other smart features include gesture recognition, S-Beam, Buddy Photo Share, Best Photo Mode, Face Zoom, Face Slideshow, Group Tag, Social Tag, SmartStay, S Health, exclusive navigation features, and, a brand new Music Hub that features over 17 million songs along with a Scan and Match feature.
