It feels great when India is considered as a major market by a mobile phone manufacturer and the company decides to launch its flagship device in the Indian subcontinent in the first round of launches and this is what Samsung has done this time around as the company has today announced the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet in India along with the companion, the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch.


The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 packs in a 5.7 inch full HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels while the Indian variant will be powered by Samsung’s very own quad-core Exynos 5 Octa processor clocking at 1.9 GHz coupled up with 3 GB of RAM. The internal storage on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is pegged at 32 GB which will further be expandable using a MicroSD card slot. The phablet runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS out of the box with loads of customization and softwares to take advantage of the improved S-Pen.

There is a 13 megapixel camera on the back of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with an LED Flash while a front facing 1.9 megapixel camera will be available for making video calls and chats. The Note 3 has been launched with a hefty price tag of Rs.49,900 which Samsung might blame on the high dollar exchange rate but we expect the prices to come down in the coming weeks. Along with the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung has also launched its first wearable device, the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch in India for a price tag of Rs.22,900. The price of the watch is again high and the company will surely find it hard to convince buyers as to why they should opt in for the Galaxy Gear too.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Gear will be available in the stores starting September 25th in India while the company has also announced that it will launch the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition sometime in October for an undisclosed price tag.
