Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus and Galaxy S20 Ultra, the company's flagship smartphones for 2020 are now available in India at an initial price of Rs 66,999. The phones were announced earlier this week along with Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, a folding phone designed with cover.
Advance orders for the Samsung Galaxy S20 series in India began with shipping starting March 6. As part of the pre-booking offers, S20 buyers will be eligible to get the Galaxy Buds Plus at Rs 2,999 and Samsung Care Plus at Rs 1,999. Similarly, if you get an S20 Plus or S20 Ultra, you can get the Galaxy Buds Plus at Rs 1,999.
Samsung Care Plus services cover the phone against any type of physical and liquid damage for one year.
Now, these new Galaxy S20 phones are 4G LTE variants and not the 5G models that were introduced in San Francisco on February 11. And although we would have loved to see an S20 phone with Snapdragon technology in India, the Galaxy S20 series in India is powered by the Exynos 990 chip.
