Samsung ‘announces’ Galaxy Note 4's India launch date

NEW DELHI: Though Apple remains unclear over its plans to launch the new iPhones in India, arch rival Samsung seems set to bring its new phablet Galaxy Note 4 in the country before Diwali. In a Facebook post, the South Korean tech giant has laid out the schedule for the phablet's launch — listing the countries along with their respective launch dates.

According to this post, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will hit the Indian market on October 10. Though there is no word about the price of the phablet, it is expected to cost more than Rs 50,000. Its predecessor, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, was launched last year at Rs 49,990.

The Facebook post that had revealed the launch dates has since been deleted by Samsung for unknown reasons.

Samsung has already released Galaxy Note 4 in two countries — China and South Korea. Samsung is said to have done this to take advantage of the fact that Apple failed to launch its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in these countries.

Within a week of its launch, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has come under the spotlight, with users complaining about and posting pictures of a noticeable gap between the display panel and the frame of the device. Samsung, however, has shunned the 'gapgate' reports and said that the phone met the quality control standards.
