Samsung Galaxy S4 gets price cut in India, now available at Rs 17999

The Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone is being treated to a sweet price cut in India where it’s selling at just Rs 17999. So far, Amazon is only offering the device at the reduced retail tag and other e-commerce websites could also be joining the bandwagon soon.

It could be that the South Korean company wants to clear out stock of the Samsung Galaxy S4 considering that a new flagship phone is expected in the next couple of months. Amazon has the deep black option in stock which is different from the normal model. Instead of the brushed metal look on the rear, you get a faux leather finish with a stitched pattern running along the sides.

This certainly adds much more style to the handset. Although nearly 2 years old, the Samsung smartphone is still a pretty great option out there and a nice alternative to the Xiaomi Mi 4, the Honor 6 from Huawei and Lenovo’s Vibe X2. The device has already been treated to Android 5.0 Lollipop and it might get updated to the new version 5.1 release in the near future.
