At the launch, the company had announced the pricing and availability for the flagships in the US, however, no information on the device’s availability in India was announced.
But all three devices have now gone up for pre-registrations in India, hinting that they are one step closer to coming to India. Interestingly, the company has also put up the Galaxy Z Flip for pre-registration.
While the pre-registration page on the company’s India website doesn’t reveal the price or availability of the devices, it does attempt to drum up interest for the device by asking buyers to provide their name, email ID, mobile number, and pin code details for the Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy Z Flip phones.
Although little information is available about the devices, the Galaxy S20 series phones are expected to be launched in India in their 4G avatar and as such be more affordable than what they are being priced at in the US.
