According to the website the phone will be available from July 18 onwards. As announced earlier the device costs Rs 27,990.

The phone is basically a smaller version of the Galaxy S4, but also sacrifices on many hardware features to hit the more affordable price point. That being said, it retains all the software features of the Galaxy S4. Samsung had pulled a similar move with the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy S III mini last year.

Weirdly, Samsung has positioned this smartphone higher than the Galaxy S III, which admittedly on paper has a superior feature set. It will be interesting to see how this one pans out.
