At the Mobile World Congress 2018, Samsung finally launched the most talked about smartphones for this year, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. As announced, the devices are scheduled to go on sale in selected markets starting March 16, and the company has already started taking pre-orders in India. However, Samsung is still tight lipped about the exact India pricing details of the smartphones. However, in some recently leaked documents, the India price of the devices have apparently been outed, and the figures look better than expected.
According to a report by 91mobiles, some claimingly official document from Samsung, reveals the price of all four models. As per the information, the Galaxy S9 64GB variant will retail at Rs 62,500 in India, whereas the 256GB variant will be sold at Rs 71,000.
For the larger Galaxy S9+ the leaked price is Rs 70,000 for the 64GB variant and Rs 79,000 for the 256GB model. The report also notes that actual price is usually lower than the MRP, so we can expect the selling prices of the handsets to be lower when launched.
BGR India have also reached out to Samsung to confirm the report.
In comparison, the Galaxy S8 currently retails at Rs 53,900, whereas the Galaxy S8+ is priced at Rs 58,900.
