Samsung revealed the new Galaxy S10 series’ India price and availability just a day after its global debut at the Galaxy Unpacked event in Barcelona on 21 February.
But while the price for all the models was announced, Samsung didn’t share a specific launch timeline at that time. However, the company has now revealed the India launch date of the new Galaxy S10 series. The Galaxy S flagship series launch event is slated for 6 March. The smartphone launch event is scheduled to take place in New Delhi at 12 pm.
Notably, pre-booking for the new Galaxy S10 phones are already live across e-retail platforms and select brick & mortar stores.
The 10th-anniversary Galaxy S10 lineup's pricing starts at Rs 55,900 for the Galaxy S10E 6 GB RAM model. The new models are confirmed to be available for purchase from 8 March via leading e-retail stores Flipkart, Amazon and select offline stores as well.
As mentioned earlier, the pricing of the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup starts at Rs 55,900 for the Galaxy S10e base variant and goes all the way up to Rs 73,900 for the Galaxy S10+ high-end model with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage.
