Retailer Mahesh Telecom on Monday tweeted that the unannounced Galaxy S Duos 3 (G313HU) is now 'in stock' at a best buy price at Rs. 7,999, and with an MRP of Rs. 8,590. The retailer also posted specifications along with pictures of the box packaging on its Facebook page. So far, no announcement regarding the smartphone has been made by Samsung India, though with the credible track record of the retailer - the company is likely to do so soon.
As per the alleged Galaxy S Duos 3 box packaging images posted by the retailer, the Galaxy S Duos 3 will come with a 4-inch WVGA (480x800 pixels) TFT display; a 1GHz dual-core processor; a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash; GPS/ Glonass support; GPRS/ EDGE; 3G support, and a 1500mAh battery. The Android version was not listed by the retailer. One of the leaked retail box pictures show that the handset will come with support for 14 Indian languages.
The Mumbai-based retailer in the past has leaked details of Samsung handsets ahead of their official launch and that have been spot-on. The retailer had also revealed the price of the company's flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5 ahead of its official release. Other Samsung handsets that have been leaked by the retailer include the Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo and the Samsung Galaxy Core 2.
Another budget Samsung handset, the Galaxy Star 2, was officially listed on the company's India e-store last week, priced at Rs. 4,580. Launched alongside the Galaxy Star Advance and Galaxy Ace NXT, the Samsung Galaxy Star 2 was officially announced at Rs. 5,100 without any availability details.
