Samsung's Galaxy Tab S9 series also joins the product line-up. Prices range between Rs 72,999 and Rs 133,999, based on size and connectivity variants. Applying the provided offers, the final price can vary between Rs 58,999 and Rs 113,999. An interesting inclusion by Samsung is the option to upgrade from smartphones, facilitating easier access to these tablet devices. All older smartphones will be eligible for the upgrade bonus.
Adding to the comprehensive range of new products, the Galaxy Watch 6 series is also launching. Prices will range between Rs 29,999 and Rs 43,999, depending on model and connectivity. After applying the given offers, the final price ranges between Rs 19,999 and Rs 33,999. The company has also made provision for upgrades from smartphones for the Watch 6 series.
