The Samsung Z1 wasn’t very highly priced when it initially launched in India as the first smartphone to be powered by Tizen, and it’s now priced even lower in the country, at least in offline stores. Retailer Mahesh Telecom has revealed that the Z1 is now available for a price of INR 5,090 (roughly $81) at retail. That’s around INR 700 (roughly $10) lower than the launch price – that’s not a huge drop by any means, but it’s certainly meaningful for a low-end device that was quite cheap in the first place.
Online stores actually have the Z1 for an even lower price. Amazon India is currently offering the phone for INR 4,852 (roughly $77), and PayTM has it for INR 4,504 (roughly $72) after a coupon rebate. Low-end devices still see a majority of sales coming from offline stores in India, but it’s nice to see the Z1 can be had for some amazingly low prices if one were to wander online.
