Galaxy Note 4 to be Released in India on 14 October: Intensive Apple vs Samsung Battle on the Cards
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Expected to be Released Before Diwali in India.

Samsung's highly anticipated flagship smartphone, the large-screen Galaxy Note 4, has now got an apparent release date in India.

The large-screen smartphone that has managed to capture people's fancy even before its official release, is all set to be released before the Indian festive season of Diwali.

According to an Economic Times report, Samsung is slated to launch the 5.7in Galaxy Note 4 during the course of the next two weeks in India, which means a pre-Diwali release is imminent.

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 K 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).

As of now, Samsung's nearest competitor, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, is yet to get a release date in India. If Note 4 comes before iPhone 6 Plus, then we could see a chunk of Apple loyalists, especially those preferring large screen, high-end smartphones, embracing Samsung.
