Samsung is not just hosting the Galaxy S 4 launch event in Delhi tomorrow but it seems it will be possible for users to buy the smartphone tomorrow itself. While Reliance Digital is taking pre-orders hosting its own launch event on April 27, Samsung India’s eStore is now showing the Galaxy S 4 will be available there from tomorrow itself. This is a big deal considering HTC, which announced the One in India as early as April 8 but it is still not available in stores.
Our sources in the unorganized trade are also claiming they will have retail units of the Galaxy S 4 as early as Saturday or latest by Monday. Add to this Samsung’s marketing muscle and it seems to be headed for another best-selling phone. HTC, despite having a brilliant product (read our review here) will lose out on all the great work they have done with the One by not bringing it to market sooner. Once people get the Galaxy S 4, with word of mouth and aggressive marketing across media, it will be difficult for HTC to sell in numbers worthy of the One.
