Samsung has decided to drop the prices of 4 more devices in India after a drop in the price of the Samsung Galaxy S4 to RS. 17,999.
Since we are in 2015, Samsung decided to drop the price of its 2014 flagship to Rs. 31,999 which was Rs.51,500 one year ago, the Galaxy S5.
On the other hand the Galaxy S3 that was launched with a price tag of RS. 25,499 is now priced at less than RS. 12,499, which is half less.
The metal phones that were launched last month at Rs. 19,300, for the A3, and Rs. 23,700, for the A5, now have a price tag of 17,900 and Rs. 20,900, respectively.
It seems to us that Samsung is desperately trying to regain it’s place in the Indian market, which is currently dominated by Xiaomi’s and Motorola’s affordable devices.
Price cuts are a good move but Samsung needs to do more and bring powerful and affordable devices in order to be able to compete with its rivals who also happen to captivate their users by providing OS updated, a spot where Samsung has failed for several devices in the past, including the S3 that never even got an update to KitKat.
