Samsung announced yesterday the prices for the Galaxy S22 series in India. We knew pre-orders begin on February 23, and today we can also reveal when the open sale is scheduled for, which is usually also the shipping date.
Customers in India will be able to receive their pre-ordered phones on March 11, or they can buy them from retail stores, Samsung Exclusive stores, the web store, and at Amazon.in.
Samsung is throwing some bonuses to users who decide to pre-order. Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ owners will be able to get the Galaxy Buds 2 for INR999 (less than $15) extra, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra customers can buy a Galaxy Watch 4 for just INR2,999 ($40). There are also some extra bonuses for current Galaxy S and Galaxy Note owners that can pocket up to INR8,000 ($107).
The vanilla Samsung Galaxy S22 starts at INR72,999 ($980), while the Plus can be purchased for at least INR84,999 ($1,140). The Galaxy S22 Ultra is either INR110,999 (just shy of $1,500) or INR118,999 (right under $1,600), depending on the storage choice. Indian users will get the Snapdragon-powered variants and not the ones with Exynos 2200, for the first time since Samsung started splitting the chipsets across various markets.
