In a bid to not lose out on the affordable 4G LTE smartphone race started by Xiaomi, Lenovo, Micromax and others, Samsung today announced it will launch three 4G LTE smartphones next month in India starting from Rs 9,990.
The three smartphones – the Galaxy J1 4G, Galaxy Core Prime 4G and Galaxy Grand Prime 4G – are essentially 4G variants of the smartphones that are currently available in India. All the three smartphones will support both TD-LTE in Band 40 and FDD-LTE in Band 3 – the two technologies being used to deliver 4G LTE networks in India.
The three smartphones will be priced north of Rs 9,990 and be available starting from the second week of March 2015, Fonearena reports. The Galaxy Core Prime will come in White, Silver and Charcoal Grey and the Galaxy Grand Prime 4G will come in White and Grey colors. The announcement comes just after Samsung is ready with the Galaxy Grand Max launch, which is also a 4G LTE enabled device.
Though Samsung is yet to officially announce prices of the three smartphones, they have a specification disadvantage when compared to the Lenovo A6000, Yu Yureka and Redmi Note 4G, all of which are 4G-LTE smartphones priced under Rs 10,000.
