Samsung's 4G-enabled Galaxy Core Prime 4G was launched
in February and was then set to be made available in India in March. However, the smartphone never did release in March, but according an established Mumbai-based retailer, the Galaxy Core Prime 4G has now gone on sale in India.
The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime 4G is said to be available at Rs. 9,999 and come with free bundled offers from the company. According to Mahesh Telecom, the Galaxy Core Prime 4G comes with up to 3GB free 4G data on Airtel network; free Hungama premium offer (with 3 months) subscription, and Vuclip prime offer (with 3 months subscription).
