Just as we reported earlier, Samsung has launched its flagship Android smartphone - the Galaxy S4 - in India today. The Galaxy S4 is priced at Rs. 41,500 ($765) and will go on sale as early as tomorrow.
The pricing and availability comes as a pleasant surprise as Samsung has managed to impress on both fronts. In comparison, the Galaxy S4's main rival HTC One is priced at Rs. 42,990 ($792) and is yet to go on sale despite being announced earlier this month. Even the iPhone 5 is currently priced at Rs. 45,500 ($838) for the 16GB model (although dealers are selling it for a bit less). The Rs. 41,500 price is the MRP, so expect it to be a bit lower in stores.
The model sold in India is the I9500 model that runs on the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5410 SoC, with four 1.6GHz Cortex A15 cores and four 1.2GHz Cortex A7 cores packed on a single chip. Along with that it also has the PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory with microSD card slot, 5.0-inch, 1920 x 1080 resolution Super AMOLED display, 13 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 2,600mAh battery and every other bell and whistle you can imagine.
8g is the user storage, 16gb is the actually physical space. The OS "eats" some of the memory. And the Touch wiz is taking up a bit more memory space other 16 gb android phones offer near about 12gb of user space with a 16 gb physical space
its very huge android but its really awesome and more incredible of s3 & nexus 4
