Samsung has officially unveiled its latest Galaxy S series smartphones called the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. These new flagships will be available in Global markets from March 16th. Now, ahead of its official launch in India, the company has already started taking pre-orders for these new flagship phones in the country.
Interested customers can now head to Samsung’s official website and pre-book the phones. To do so, you’ll have to pay Rs 2,000 up front. The website shows three colors i.e., Lilac Purple, Midnight Black and Coral Blue. Unfortunately, there’s no word on the launch price of the new Galaxy S9 duo yet.
