Initially, there had been no confirmation as to the exact date of release, whether it was the first or second Sunday. This is considered the usual day when new mobile devices are released by the telecom companies. As the release commonly falls on a weekend, the turnout of consumers during this event will determine how well the market accepts this new smartphone device.
