Samsung Galaxy S III to launch in India on June 10th


The Samsung Galaxy S III is expected to come to India on June 10th
Yesterday's introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S III has many waiting for the device to launch in their country. According to Android Authority, the device will launch in India on June 10th. Smartphones are prolific in the country and we would imagine that there is a large number of potential purchasers circling this date on the their calendar. 
According to the report, the phone will be priced in India between Rs.38,000 - Rs.41,000 which is the equivalent to approximately $760-$820 USD. In India, the carriers don't offer contracts so there are no subsidized phones and the handset can be purchased from Samsung or any authorized re-seller. The aforementioned price range dovetails with the 600 EUR that Amazon Germany is asking for the model (which is the equivalent of $790 USD) and the 499.95 GBP that the U.K.'s Carphone Warehouse wants for the phone. That works out to roughly $809 USD. The Carphone Warehouse deal includes a free Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 tablet for the first 100 customers that purchase the Samsung Galaxy S III using a monthly payment plan.

Most of the planet is expecting the Samsung Galaxy S III to launch on May 29th, although that will be the version offering HSPA+ connectivity. In the U.S., Japan and Korea, the version of the Galaxy S III launched will have LTE connectivity and won't be released until later in the Summer. Samsung did say that the Stateside launch will take place next month.
