Samsung Galaxy Note II and Galaxy SIII – Gets a Price Cut, Sales Likely To Shoot Up

After having sold over 40 million Galaxy SIII handsets worldwide, Samsung plans to gear up even further by slashing down prices. The two of its flagship handsets – the Galaxy SIII and Galaxy Note II are now available at a price that’s much lower than its official price. So, what’s forcing Samsung to do so? Many speculate it to be a strategy that will offer it an extra ounce of advantage over its new Indian competitor Micromax who created a huge buzz with the Canvas A110. But, how true is that? Well, no matter what the reason is, one thing is for sure. Samsung fans surely have got a lot to cheer about.

Earlier in May 2012, the Samsung Galaxy SIII was launched with a price tag of Rs. 43,000. Till date, Samsung has recorded more than 30 million sales of Galaxy SIII alone, which is truly amazing.  In December 2012, the phone received an approximate price cut of Rs. 3000. The 16 GB version is now available at around Rs. 29,500 approx. However, a few online retailers also offer you the best deal at around Rs. 27,500.

Samsung also doesn’t seem to be sparing its most sought after phablet – the Galaxy Note II. The Samsung Galaxy Note II was launched with a price tag of Rs. 39,900. However, you can now bring it home at Rs. 35,600 – a cut or Rs. 4000. Further, online retailers offer you the delicious cookie at a discounted price of Rs. 34,900. Within just 2 months, over 5 million handsets were sold and the sales are only likely to shoot up high in future.
