India: Pre-order your Galaxy S8 exclusively from Flipkart starting tomorrow
If you’re in India, starting 12PM on April 19, you will be able to pre-order the Galaxy S8 or its bigger sibling Galaxy S8 Plus exclusively from Flipkart. The official pricing has not been revealed yet, unfortunately.
The Galaxy S8 duo is slowly making its way around the world. Samsung’s latest flagships have already been released in South Korea, and most carriers in the US and Canada have started shipping all pre-ordered devices. Now it’s gearing up to make a splash in the second largest smartphone market in the world: India.
Samsung already announced that it would be taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus starting April 19 in India, and it looks like Flipkart will be Samsung’s exclusive online launch partner. This isn’t hugely surprising given that Samsung has a history of selling devices like the Galaxy C9 Pro and the Galaxy A9 Pro exclusively through the online retailer.
The pre-orders will start at 12PM, but unfortunately, there is no official word on how much these devices will cost.
