Samsung has launched a new 4G LTE smartphone in India, the Galaxy Grand Prime 4G, priced at 11,499 INR.

With the 4G variant of the Galaxy Grand Prime we continue to expand our product offerings in the mid segment with the aim to provide uncompromised smartphone experience, at very competitive prices”
