Apparently, the device will be launched there with an MRP of Rs 49,900 ($926 / €694), which would make it one of the most expensive devices in the country.

However, the street price of the phone is expected to be lower, at Rs 45,000 ($835 / €626), which would bring it in line with Apple’s iPhone 5, but which might still hurt sales.

The handset
packs a 5-inch full HD screen, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, and Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform loaded on top.
