  1. This looks like one hell of a lethal h/w combo…is this expected to be available in India and am sure even it does it will cost upward of Rs 40K easily.


  2. India is not in the list of countries to be released.
    Pricing would rival the Nexus series.
    you could import from HK/China, but then forget about warranty or service, specially considering it to be the first flagship device from a new manufacturer.
    Cyanogenmod will be sweet though


  3. Aint dual sim dual 3G supposed to be a default spec already? And front camera is a shy…they should have made it at least 8MP.. MonkeyKing2 have 13MP front and back already…and how about NFC? This Phone is almost there…they could have done it and claim the throne of 2014
