When South Korean electronics giant Samsung unveiled its Galaxy S4 smartphone in a glitzy event at New York City on 14 March, the device's innovative and state-of-art smartcamera and touch-free feature left many spell bound.

To cash in on Samsung smartphone's popularity, UK based online stores and network carriers have already begun taking pre-orders for the unlocked Galaxy S4 variant for hefty prices ranging from £529.98 (around ₹43,750) to £629.95 (around ₹52,000). The prices are much costlier than rivals HTC One and Sony Xperia Z, even though the handset shipments are expected to reach only in late April.

But on the bright side, telecom operators are offering Galaxy S4 at much lower prices with data plan contracts.
