Exclusive : Samsung Galaxy SIII Launching in India 1st week of June, Prices out

So its time again for some inside news. Several of our sources are talking up the Samsung Galaxy SIII and the fact that it will be showing up in India early Next Month.

According to our Samsung insiders, the company will hold a launch event sometime in the 1st week of June and immediately have the device available in the market. The pricing information also seems to be hinting that the device will be launched at Rs. 35999/- as the MRP on the boxed unit of the Galaxy SIII.

The Samsung Galaxy SIII, an upgrade to the superbly popular Samsung Galaxy SII, was launched last week at an even held in London.

The company has taken a different approach to the design of its handset and instead of the boxy design have now gone with a more fluid and organic design with rounded edges. The S3 comes with a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED Display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 px making it 306 pixels per inch. An 8MP camera with HD video and a 1.9MP front camera for HD Video calling.

As far as the chipset is concerned, the Exynos 4212 Quad core with 1.4GHz clock speed goes under the hood along side a Mali-400MP GPU. Three storage options 16/32/64 GB storage and 1 GB RAM give the buyer possibly the best set.

Also according to our sources the Galaxy SIII will only be available in the 16GB version in India.

The pentile layout on the display is a bit disappointing. I personally don't like the green hue that is cast on the screen when viewing it off-angle.

Its great to have such a good tech-pack sammy but the disappointing part is that it's still 8mp optics. World was expecting 12mp atleast. Anyways, ics with touch wiz and heavy customization by samsung will prove worthy of its competition. Waiting eagerly to have my hands on one.

If the MRP on the boxed unit is 35,999 then the actual price would be at least 3-4k less than that!!!!!!! Coz similar was the case with HTC One X - MRP = 42,000; actual price = 36-37k
