Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have officially gone up for sale in India and other countries around the world. There are still plenty of deals active on the smartphones if you’re looking to shave off a few numbers from its price.

The Galaxy S9 starts at Rs 57900 for its 64GB variant and ups the figure to Rs 65900 for the 256GB version. The Galaxy S9+ can be picked up for Rs 64900 and Rs 72900, respectively. The 128GB model hasn’t arrived in India, nor has the Titanium Gray color.

Samsung currently has stock of the handsets, but it looks like Flipkart doesn’t. Both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are sold out on the site. The retailer faced a bit of trouble during the pre-booking phase, and it’s unclear when the phones will go up for sale on the website again.
