Samsung Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Z Flip prices
Samsung Galaxy S20 price starts at $999 (about Rs 72,000) in the US, while the Galaxy S20+ will begin at $1,199 (roughly Rs 85,000). Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip price has been set at $1,380 (approx Rs 98,500).

India, however, is expected to get only 4G versions of the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra, so the prices are expected to be lower compared to the prices of their 5G counterparts.
