The recent launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 has made many smartphone buyers delay their phone purchases. The predecessor of the Galaxy S4, the Galaxy S3, is still one of the top-end smartphones on the market but the smartphone has seen a price drop since the launch of Galaxy S4; this time Canadian telecommunications provider Mobilicity has slashed the price of the Galaxy S3.
Mobilicity is offering the 16GB, Pebble Blue version of the Galaxy S3 for $399.99 outright, which is a discount of $200 on the normal price of the handset on the network. If you are looking for the 16GB, Marble White color of the handset then you will have to lay out an extra $100.
Undoubtedly, the price cut on the Galaxy S3 means that Mobilicity wants to make room for the Galaxy S4, expected to be released by the end of April. The Galaxy S4 is definitely a step ahead of the Galaxy S3, but the Samsung flagship smartphone for 2012 has still not lost its shine completely.
The Galaxy S3 features top-end specifications needed to compete with other high-end smartphones available on the market. The Mobilicity deal may seem attractive to many smartphone buyers, as big Canadian carriers like Rogers, TELUS and Bell are still charging $650 for the handset without any contract.
Unlike other providers, Mobilicity does not make you sign lengthy contracts (usually a three-year one) or pay any cancellation fees. You can buy the handset from Mobilicity and it also has price plans starting at $25 to suit your requirements.
At the launch of Galaxy S4, the Korean company also announced that the Galaxy S3 will get some features of the Galaxy S4 via future software updates. The price drop of the Galaxy S3 may still attract many Canadian customers to buy the handset.
