Samsung Galaxy Note 3 And Galaxy Gear Now Up For Pre-Order In India

For INR 2,000

Fancy the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet? Or the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. How about both? Well, Samsung has officially kicked off pre-booking for the duo (combo deal), for a low price of just Rs. 2,000, which is about $33. Mind you, the pre-booking amount is no indication of the final price, and that statement was confirmed later this afternoon when the same source unearthed from Indian online retailer Saholic's website that the Galaxy Note III will cost Rs. 47,990 (roughly $800, a bit overpriced, ouch!).

The Galaxy Gear on the other hand is expected to sell for about Rs. 20,000, although it could be higher than that as we have no official confirmation. Final prices will be revealed next week, but don't expect the prices to drop from the amount listed in this article. Having said that, Rs. 47,990 sounds just too high for a phablet, whereas the older generation Galaxy Note II can be had for just Rs. 27,000 now.
