June 29: In May, Samsung had launched its smartphone Galaxy A6 in India. The price for the 32 GB variant of the smartphone has now dropped. The 32 GB variant of Galaxy A6 was initially priced at Rs 21,990. After a price drop of Rs 2000, the phone is now priced at Rs 19,990.
It has also been disclosed that the 64GB variant of Galaxy A6 which comes with a price tag of Rs 22,990 is not available in the Indian market. This variant is also reported to get the same price cut of Rs 2000, when available.
The smartphone available on Amazon is also sold for the reduced price of Rs 19,990. Whether the reduced price on Amazon is a limited period discount is also uncertain. Meanwhile, the device is offered on Samsung eShop and Paytm Mall at the old price.
Even though Samsung has a tradition of reducing the price eventually, such an early reduction on the prices is odd. Those who are planning to buy Galaxy A6 can hurry as Paytm Mall offers the phone with a cash back offer of Rs 3000 for purchases using ICICI credit cards. Apart from the offline Samsung retail stores, the device is available on Paytm Mall, Samsung India E- store and Amazon India.
