“Samsung Galaxy S10 India pre-orders will start in India at 10am, says the Flipkart banner, even though the company officially has not announced the same yet”
Samsung Galaxy S10 series is now official, with the company taking the covers off its flagship handsets in San Francisco. It announced pre-orders for Galaxy S10 series smartphones will begin on February 22nd in several markets, but didn’t reveal which countries it will be. While the company remains mum on the matter in India, a Flipkart page has revealed one key detail regarding the Galaxy S10 India pre-orders.
Samsung Galaxy S10 India pre-orders
Samsung Galaxy S10 pre-orders in India will start at 10am tomorrow, according to Flipkart banner. The page also allows users to sign up for notifications about the handsets by clicking on the ‘Notify Me’ button when logged in. There is, however, not much information to learn from the Flipkart page about the Galaxy S10 India pre-orders beyond the time. However, we should expect to get more details about the pre-bookings as the clock strikes 10am.
The Galaxy S10 price in India is unlikely to be revealed though as Samsung for the past few years has taken pre-orders for its flagship smartphones with a small deposit at the time of placing the booking. The rest of the sum needs to be paid when the price is officially announced and device is picked up. We can expect some pre-order offers, such as the Galaxy Watch at a discounted price or free Galaxy Buds earbuds with the handsets. Moreover, there will likely be complimentary data from telecom operators such as Jio or Airtel.

As for the common features, all three phones in the Galaxy S10 series in India will be powered by the 8nm octa-core Exynos 9820 SoC. The operating system powering the phone will be the Android 9 Pie-based One UI. Users will be able to expand the storage by up to 512GB using microSD cards, though it will take up one of the SIM card slots as the handset doesn’t have a dedicated microSD card slot.
