After looking at the Australian and Italian Galaxy S4 launches earlier today, we now have a report for you detailing the Indian release of the handset.

According to TechOne3, Samsung will launch the Galaxy S4 in the region at some point in early May, therefore almost around the same time the handset will be available in other markets – the earliest confirmed launch date for the device is April 26, when EE will have in stores in UK.

The Indian Galaxy S4 will feature an Exynos 5 Octa processor, so initially you can only expect a 3G version of the phone. The same source says that a TDD/FDD LTE dual mode Galaxy S4 will be available in India later this year.

The phone is expected to cost Rs. 40,000-45,000 without a contract (or $740-833,) although it will surely be more affordable when purchased with new contracts. Vodafone and Airtel are listed as the carriers that will have the handset in stock, but we don’t have actual release dates for their Galaxy S4 launches.

Are you buying the Galaxy S4 in India, or are you going to pick up a different flagship Android handset this year?
