Last week, Samsung sent out invites
for the launch of the "The Next Galaxy" on October 14, indicating the India launch of the Galaxy Note 4 at an event scheduled in New Delhi on Tuesday. On Monday, an established retailer shared what appears to be a promotional image of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4
that mentions October 17 as the availability date in India. Incidentally, Apple's much-awaited iPhone 6
and iPhone 6 Plus
, which have received record pre-orders
, also go on sale in the country on the same date
Apart from the invite, the company has not indicated a launch date or announced pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 4 in India, but the retailer's information has largely turned out to be accurate in the past.
Galaxy Note 4 was unveiled by the company
at its pre-IFA 2014 event in September, and it comes with the new S Pen stylus with improved pressure sensitivity, as well as the new Smart Select feature, apart from the new calligraphy and signing pen writing options.
