Last Sunday, South Korean tech giant Samsung announced its Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagships at a pre-MWC event in Barcelona, Spain. And yesterday, at an event in New Delhi, Samsung launched both these flagships in India. Both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ come in three internal storage variants – 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. However, Samsung only launched the 64 GB and 256 GB variants in India. While Samsung didn’t reveal any details regarding the availability of 128 GB variant during the launch, it turns out that the company will indeed bring this variant in the country.
In a chat with 91Mobiles, Samsung India’s Senior Vice President Asim Warsi said that the company is planning to bring the 128 GB variant of both S9 and S9+ in India. However, he did not reveal any timeline for the launch of 128 GB models of these flagships in the country.
Having said that, Samsung had launched the 128 GB storage variant of Galaxy S8+ in India last year in June. So chances are we could see Samsung launching the 128 GB variants of S9 and S9+ in India during the same time period. However, this is just a speculation, and Samsung could actually launch the 128 GB variant of S9 and S9+ in India before or after that.
That said, unlike last year’s Galaxy S8 and S8+, which only differentiated based on screen size and battery capacity, this year’s S9 and S9+ differ in terms of screen size, battery capacity, amount of RAM, and, the number of cameras at the back.
Both the S9 and S9+ go on sale in India from March 16 through Flipkart, Samsung India’s E-Store, and, through offline retail stores across the country.
