Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S21 series today, along with the Galaxy Buds Pro and the Galaxy SmartTag. The company has now revealed the prices, availability, pre-order dates, and launch offers for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra for the Indian market.
Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, Galaxy S21 Ultra prices in India, color variants
The Galaxy S21 starts at INR 69,999 in India for the 128GB storage variant, while the 256GB variant costs INR 73,999. The 128GB and 256GB variants of the Galaxy S21+ are priced at INR 81,999 and INR 85,999, respectively. The Galaxy S21 Ultra will be available in India in 256GB and 512GB variants, and these variants cost INR 1,05,999 and INR 1,16,999, respectively.
The Galaxy S21 will be available in four colors: Phantom Grey, Phantom Pink (not for the 256GB version), Phantom Violet, and Phantom White. The Galaxy S21+ will be available in Phantom Black, Phantom Silver, and Phantom Violet. The 256GB variant of the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be available in Phantom Black and Silver, while the 512GB version can only be purchased in Phantom Black.
Galaxy S21 pre-order dates, cashback, and launch offers in India
Samsung India will start accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S21 series from January 15 via Samsung Exclusive Stores, Samsung’s online store, major online retailers, and authorized retail stores across the country. The Galaxy S21 series will go on sale in India starting January 29. Pre-booking orders will start arriving on January 25 in India.
Those who pre-book the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, or the Galaxy S21 Ultra in India will get the Galaxy SmartTag for free and a Samsung E-Shop voucher of INR 10,000. Samsung will offer a Galaxy Watch Active 2 or a combo of Galaxy Buds+ and Travel Adapter with all pre-bookings. We are unsure if this offer applies only to those who pre-reserved the Galaxy S21 series by paying INR 2,000 or to everyone who pre-orders the devices. We have reached out to Samsung for more information.
Samsung has also tied up with HDFC Bank to offer a cashback of INR 5,000 with the Galaxy S21. Those who buy the Galaxy S21+ or the Galaxy S21 Ultra can get a cashback of INR 7,000 and INR 10,000, respectively, if they make their purchase using an HDFC Bank credit card. Alternatively, they can avail an Upgrade Bonus of up to INR 5,000.
Galaxy S21 will not come with headphones or a charger in the box
All the Galaxy S21 series smartphones sold in India will feature the Exynos 2100 processor and 5G connectivity. It should be noted that the company is no longer offering a microSD card slot in its newest flagship smartphones.
Moreover, the company will not bundle the charger and the earphones along with the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra. So, you either have to use your existing Bluetooth or USB Type-C earphones or use a USB Type-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter. You would also have to use your existing USB Type-C charger that is compatible with 25W USB PD or get a new one.
