Samsung has reportedly reduced the price of Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 32GB and Galaxy J7 Nxt smartphones, according to Mahesh Telecom, a Mumbai-based mobile phone retailer. The retailer announced the price cut via its social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter). However, there is no official confirmation from Samsung regarding the same. This comes close on the heels of a lot of action in the low to mid-range sement, with new entrants like Comio seeking to make a splash with aggressively priced phones and loaded features like extended warranty etc.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 32GB has got its price shaved by Rs 3,000 and will now be available at Rs 13,900. The Galaxy J7 Prime 32GB smartphone was launched in May this year at Rs 16,900. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt has also got a price snipped by Rs 1,000 and will now be available at Rs 10,490. The Galaxy J7 Nxt smartphone was launched in July this year at Rs 11,490.
