Possible Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ prices for India leaked

What impressed us most about the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ is that Samsung isn’t asking for an exorbitant premium over last year’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ despite the new features and improvements. Sure, the prices of the new flagships will vary from market to market, but the difference between the S9 and S9+ and their predecessors seems to be around $50/€50 in general. This seems to be the case in India as well – prices of the S9 and S9+ for the country have leaked online, and they suggest the company is going to be following its usual course as far as raising prices for its flagships in the world’s second-largest smartphone market is concerned.

Possible Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ prices for India leaked

91Mobiles has gained access to a document that lists out the maximum retail price (MRP) for both the 64GB and 256GB models of the Galaxy S9 and S9+: Rs 62,500 and Rs 71,000 for the two S9 variants, and Rs 70,000 and Rs 79,000 for the 64GB and 256GB S9+ variants respectively. The markup on the 256GB model, which is the only higher storage variant set to launch in the country according to Samsung India’s website, is similar to what we saw with the 6GB RAM + 128GB Galaxy S8+ that launched in India last year. The 256GB model is only listed with the black color option, but Samsung is thankfully launching the higher storage model (and at least three color options) more widely this year.

It’s also worth noting that the Korean giant doesn’t usually release new phones at their MRP value in India, so the actual prices are bound to be lower. The document lists deal prices lower than what the S8 and S8+ cost at launch, so Samsung is also likely to have offers such as credit card cashbacks for early bird customers. Of course, we’ll have to wait for official word on how much these handsets will cost. The Indian market is expected to get Samsung’s new flagships faster than usual this year, as evidenced by the company already charging a prebooking amount for the S9 and S9+ in the country, so the wait shouldn’t be so long.
