After the official unveiling in Barcelona, Samsung didn’t waste any time in bringing the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to India. The latest Galaxy flagship smartphones were available for purchase in India from March 16 onwards, in line with other major markets around the world. Both the devices were available in 64 GB and 256 GB storage variants so far.

Available currently in offline channels

According to an NDTV report, Samsung has quietly launched the 128 GB variant of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in offline channels in India. We can independently confirm this news from our sources in the retail channel as well. At the time of this article, the 128 GB model is not listed on any of the major shopping websites in India. We currently don’t know if Samsung intends to sell the 128 GB model exclusively through its offline partners and the color options the company will provide. The 256 GB variant is only available in Midnight Black in India, and that may be the case for the 128 GB version as well.

As far as the pricing is concerned, 128 GB model will retail for INR 61,900 and INR 68,900 for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ respectively. In comparison, the 64 GB S9 and S9+ currently retail for INR 57,900 and INR 64,990 respectively. The 256 GB model, on the other hand, is priced at INR 65,900 for the Galaxy S9 and INR 72,900 for the Galaxy S9+. As you can see from the pricing details, there is a difference of INR 4000 between the 128 GB and 256 GB storage variants. Given that the current prices of the 128 GB microSD cards hover around INR 3000, going for the 256 GB model makes more sense.

The base 64 GB model is already enough for most users. However, those who love to shoot a lot of 4K videos or watch a lot of VR videos should consider buying the 256 GB model. If you’re planning to buy the Galaxy S9 or S9+, do check our review.
