  1. $555…this means it’s gonna be priced at more than Rs.35000 in India…There is still kitkat and processor that is being offered is Snapdragon 615 Octacore that is found in Micromax Yu (Rs.8999) and HTC 820(min RS 21000)..
    HTC is also offering HTC desire 826 with the same specs and Lollipop…It might be priced less than Rs.30,000..
    I doubt Samsung is really having a look at it’s competitors before launching a device…
