Samsung seems to have slashed the prices of its two premium mid-range smartphones, the Galaxy S4 mini
and Galaxy S III
in India. It is not clear whether the price cut is part of a limited period festival offer or not.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is now available for Rs. 25,400 compared with Rs. 28,900 earlier while the Galaxy S4 mini will be now available for Rs. 23,360 (16GB model) down from the previous price tag of Rs. 27,990, at Samsung's official online store. Both the smartphones have seen a price cut of around Rs. 4,000.
Additionally, both the smartphones are now also available at Flipkart with additional discounts. The Galaxy S III is available at Rs. 24,900, while the Galaxy S4 mini has an offer price of Rs. 22,900.
The South Korean major launched the Galaxy S III in May last year at a price of Rs. 43,180, while the Galaxy S4 mini, a 'mini' variant of company's flagship, the Galaxy S4, was launched earlier this year for Rs. 27,990.
The price slash news come ahead of festivals season, and it could be assumed as a limited period festival offer for both the smartphones.
Not too long ago, BlackBerry also announced a price cut for its flagship smartphone, the Z10 in India. However, the company mentioned that the price cut is a limited period festival offer but has not revealed the duration of the offer.
