Galaxy Note 4 to be released in India on 14 October: Apple vs Samsung battle on the cards.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4, undoubtedly one of the most anticipated technology products of the year, is now all set to be released in retail stores across India, starting 14 October, according to a new report.

A new tweet by a prominent retailer in India, mentions the in-store availability of Galaxy Note 4 as 17 October, which means that Samsung's large-screen flagship will be shown off officially on 14 October as stated by earlier reports.

The latest release date information regarding Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is in line with yet another earlier report which surfaced last week and mentioned about a pre-Diwali release for Galaxy Note 4.

The high-end Galaxy Note 4 should cost approximately Rs 50,000 (£500) in India. An unlocked version of the smartphone costs $826 in the US.

Key hardware aspects of Samsung Galaxy Note 4:

  • 5.7in AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, enclosed within Gorilla Glass 3
  • Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor
  • 16MP rear camera, and a 3.7 MP front camera
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32 GB internal storage
  • MicroSD card slot for expansion up to 128 GB
  • 4G, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and microUSB connectivity
  • 3,220 mAh battery

Samsung recently released its metal-clad Galaxy Alpha smartphone in India, and the gadget is priced at Rs 40,000 (£400).

Interestingly, Apple's latest creative flagship smartphones viz the 4.7in iPhone 6 and the 5.5in iPhone 6 Plus are also slated to go up for sales across brick-and-mortar retail stores in India, starting 17 October.

With flagship smartphones of the two most important smartphone manufacturers in the world going up for retail sales on the same day, a division of customer loyalties is certain.
