Earlier (Jan 19): Samsung India has reduced the price of its Galaxy S3 Neo smartphone in the country. The phone can now be grabbed for just INR 12,499 from e-retailers like Flipkart as well as brick and mortar stores. To remind you, the phone was earlier retailing for INR 15,999.
Originally introduced in April last year, Galaxy S3 Neo is a variant of Samsung’s Galaxy S3 and comes with almost the same specifications as S III apart from a different processor, more RAM and dual-SIM support.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 1.4GHz quad-core processor (most likely Qualcomm Snapdragon 400), 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and microSD card slot. The phone also packs 8MP rear camera, 1.9MP front shooter, dual-SIM support, 3G and 2100 mAh battery.
The S3 Neo runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Android 4.4 KitKat update is available for the smartphone. It is unlikely to get any software updates in the future.
If you prefer buying Samsung phones, Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo is a decent option at the new price-tag. It might be old smartphone, but the specifications of the phone are in line with most smartphones in this price-bracket.
