India is one of the most important markets for Samsung and they confirmed it today by announcing their latest flagship devices – Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear for the Indian market. India will be one of the launch markets for Samsung when both devices will go on sale on Sep 25. Both devices cannot be considered as cheap but given the recent Dollar rates, we think Samsung is pricing it slightly higher to safeguard from the constantly changing rates.

To give you a quick recap of the device, it comes with 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal memory, Android 4.3 OS, better S Pen input, Wi-Fi, 13MP camera, 2MP front-facing camera, microSD card slot, Bluetooth and 3200mAh battery.
Samsung’s work is on the software side that comes with Air Command – Samsung’s latest feature for S Pen. Additionally, we’ve got Air View, Multi window, Samsung Hub, WatchON, Pop up Play etc.
Galaxy Gear was also announced today and will go on sale with the Galaxy Note 3. The companion smartwatch boasts apps support that promises to enhance the overall experience.
