The smartphone is available across all Samsung's retail channels from the coming week at a price of Rs 8490. In the online space, it'll be available exclusively on Snapdeal.

The Smartphone flaunts a 5-inch HD (1280x720 pixels) Super AMOLED display, and is powered by a 1.3GHz Spreadtrum quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. Also on offer is 8GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card.
