Samsung Galaxy S4 Release Date In India: Launching May 1?

Now that the Galaxy S4 has become a reality and not just something we speculate about on the Internet, people naturally want to know when Samsung will release the highly anticipated smartphone in their country.

For many countries, it's expected that the Galaxy S4 will be released about a month after its unveiling, which you'll remember took place in New York City on March 14. It was a pretty big deal, and kind of weirdly sexist. Regardless, some countries might have to wait a little longer than a month to get the Galaxy S4.

In India, at least, the delay for the Galaxy S4 may not actually be too bad. According to the Indian online marketplace Tradus, the S4 is slated to hit the country on May 1 for about Rs 45,000 (that's about $830). That's for the 16GB version, so expect the cost to be greater for the higher capacity smartphones.

Neither the price nor the date have been confirmed by Samsung at this point, so it's good to keep in mind that details could change. Tradus is already taking pre-orders for both the White Frost and Black Mist models, and the down payment is Rs 99 (or a little under $20).

As for which Galaxy S4 model India will see, Android Authority reports that it's likely to sport a fabled Exynos Octa eight-core processor, developed internally by Samsung, while shipments later in the year will pack the Snapdragon 600 from Qualcomm.

The Galaxy S4 sports a 5-inch screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The phone runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, and you can probably expect a Key Lime Pie 5.0 update soon after Google reveals it in May. There are also few Samsung-specific features like S Translator, S Health and Floating Touch. Smart Pause and other eye-tracking technology will also be incorporated into the phone.
