Samsung Galaxy S III officially released in India
Today, he Samsung Galaxy S III has been launched in India, the world’s second largest mobile market. The handset’s official price there is 43,180 INR – about $767. This, of course, makes the S III one of the most expensive smartphones in India, but that’s normal, since it’s also one of the best you’ll find this year.
Running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy S III features – among others – a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 720 pixels, 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor, HSPA+, S Voice, eye tracking technology, 1.9MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera with simultaneous photo and video recording, and a beefy 2100 mAh battery. Unlike in Japan and Canada, in India the new Galaxy will have 1GB of RAM, not 2GB.
For the beginning, only the 16GB version of the Galaxy S III is available to Indian customers. Those who buy it from Vodafone are eligible to get 3GB of free data for two months.
