This is an official price cut made by Samsung and the company has relayed the new pricing structure to both online and brick-and-mortar retailers across India, reported NDTV Gadgets.
The changes have already begun reflecting on the e-commerce site, Amazon India. It has listed Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500) black model at the aforementioned price and in its bid to further sweeten the deal, has promised to give-away ₹1,000 worth gift card on purchase of the Samsung phone.
