Samsung, which is set to launch the Galaxy Note 3 tomorrow, is reportedly planning to launch two affordable handsets this month as well. According to the report of PTI, Samsung will offer the mid-segment handsets with local language support to attract the non-English speaking people in India.
"We will be launching two new smart phones priced for the mid-segment market. Every phone from Samsung will have nine vernacular language options," Samsung Country Head (Mobile Business) Vineet Taneja was quoted as saying by PTI. Though he did not mentioned prices of the smartphones, PTI quoted sources as saying that the devices would be priced between Rs 5,000-15,000.

At that time, the Indian languages based user interface was supported on Galaxy Grand, Galaxy S4, and Tab 3 only but Samsung had promised to enhance the availability of regional language content to its more affordable handsets starting with Galaxy Star within this month.
