The news will certainly be welcomed by camera mavens. Samsung Galaxy Camera price has been slashed by Rs 3,880 in India

There are not many takers for Samsung’s Galaxy S Camera in India. The high pricing of the smart-camera has kept most of the people wishing to go for this very beautiful and endowed camera away from it. But Samsung seems to be on a price slashing spree right now. It recently cut the price of its top selling handsets including Galaxy S3 and its top selling phablet Galaxy Note 2. Both the handsets are still being sold in the Indian market in large numbers and the price cut is certainly going to attract more buyers to it.

The South Korean tech giant’s Indian arm has decided to slash the Galaxy S camera price from Rs 29,950 to Rs Rs 26,520, a clear reduction of Rs 3,880.
