Samsung has dropped the prices of its flagship smartphones in India, specifically, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. The two smartphones have received price cuts of Rs. 5,000 each from their launch prices in India.
The price drops of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge were first tipped by an established Mumbai-based retailer, but Gadgets 360 has received independent confirmation of the move.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 will now sport a dealer price of Rs. 43,400 in India, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will sport a dealer price tag of Rs. 50,900. Both prices are referring to the 32GB variants of the smartphones in the country, which were launched carrying a consumer-facing MRP of Rs. 48,900 and Rs. 56,900 respectively.
To recall, Samsung had launched its two flagship smartphones at MWC 2016, and brought them to India a month later in only their 32GB variants.
We’ve since reviewed the smartphones, and found them to very compelling options if money is no object. Samsung may have dropped the prices of the smartphones to boost their demand ahead of the availability of its flagship phablet in India, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
Launched in India earlier this month, the Galaxy Note 7 will go on sale from September 2. Pre-bookings for the smartphone began on Monday, and thus the timing of the price drop seems to indicate a connection. Pre-bookings will carry on till August 30
