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.
both the smartphones are now also available at Flipkart with additional
discounts. The Galaxy S III is available at
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.
