    Reason why Samsung is launching this phone in INDIA because HTC has launched his ONE series Smartphone globally (including INDIA). Otherwise these companies wouldn't consider INDIAN market to introduce their latest phones. HTC's should be praised for their work of starting a new trend in INDIA( of including INDIAN market as lauching platform for their products). And i can tell u HTC ONE X is way better than this phone and above all it is already available in INDIA.
