The handset has been showcased and is being loved by people across the world. Meanwhile Samsung Galaxy S4 price and release date for USA, UK etc have been leaked

In days after its official release, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is getting price tags for many markets. The Korean tech giant has revealed how much it will value its new flagship in certain markets. Prices for other leading markets will come out in coming days, however. It seems that the S4, as some analysts predicted, is going to be a superb challenger to the all new line of FullHD phones this year. Let us see for what a price the S4 will get in key markets and when the device will be unveiled in some markets.

United States: As usual, the U.S. will be the central market for Galaxy S4. Samsung has deliberately chosen New York for the device’s release with a goal to steal more customers, especially from Apple’s kitty, from the U.S. Last year, Samsung went on to unveil its predecessor in London with a target at the U.K. customers. A U.S. customer can buy the new Samsung flagship from all major carriers. The Samsung Mobile head JK Shin has offered to bring the phone into the shelves at the end of April.

Now, Samsung’s official site has a mention that the 16GB basic model of the device will come for an “approximate retail value” of $579. It is sure that the price tag excludes all taxes and so it might be something above $600 for the SIM free model of the basic model. Anyway, it is said that the price would be lower than the price of iPhone 5 of the same memory capacity. The formal price tag of the device hasn’t been confirmed by Samsung yet, and, therefore, don’t take it granted.

Europe: After North America, Samsung might be intending to sell its next Galaxy S phone in large numbers in various countries of Europe. It looks that the handset will be priced around €699 at launch in Italy. It was revealed by some insider sources to an Italian website. It is slated for official release in the first half of May 2013. Also, it will come to many carriers as well in the same period.

However, as per the Italian publication, the price of the device in the content will be priced €100 less. It is usual because the Italian markets always get the latest smartphones overpriced. “So if they are correct, the European launch price of the Galaxy S4 should fluctuate anywhere between €600 and €700 depending on your country,” writes GSM Arena. In a recent update, GSM Arena has noted that Amazon DE has started to accept pre-orders for the device at €650.

India: India is also a leading market for Samsung. There are a huge number of fans for its products in the subcontinent. Sources claim that many online vendors in India have started to offer the S4 for pre-order for a price starting at INR.

40,000. As per the increase in memory capacity, the device will be priced up to INR. 50,000. It is reported that India will be one of the first markets for Samsung to ship its new flagship to.

Conclusion
The new Samsung Galaxy S phone is the talk of the town now. It has come out with a good number of quality features. The device mounts a 4.99-in Super AMOLED display, 13MP rear camera, Samsung’s new Exynos Octa core processor, 2GB of RAM and a rather thinner and lighter body.

Apart from this list of wealthy specs, the handset is to highlight features like Smart Stay, Smart Pause, the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box and more. The device is to certainly raise up as a strong rival to the whole new line of phablets as well iPhone 5S, Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10 devices this year.
