Samsung Galaxy A31 price in India has been slashed by Rs. 1,000. The price cut comes just weeks after the launch of its successor: the Samsung Galaxy A32. The South Korean company has also introduced an exchange offer on the newly launched Samsung Galaxy A32 that debuted last month. The exchange discount is in addition to a cashback offer that customers purchasing the Samsung Galaxy A32 can avail using HDFC Bank cards or via ZestMoney. The new smartphone is priced at Rs. 21,999 before discounts and offers.
As per the announcement made through a press note, the Samsung Galaxy A31 will be available at Rs. 16,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. This reflects a Rs. 1,000 discount over the phone's price tag of Rs. 17,999. The Samsung Galaxy A31 with the new pricing will be available for purchase through various retail outlets and the Samsung India site shortly. It will also get no-cost EMI options through leading non-banking financial companies (NBFCs).
In addition to the Galaxy A31 price cut, Samsung has announced an exchange offer on the Galaxy A32. The company said that customers exchanging their old smartphones for the Samsung Galaxy A32 will get an upgrade voucher worth Rs. 3,000 over the value of their old handset. Customers will also be able to look at the exact value they'll get on exchanging their old smartphone by going to Samsung Upgrade > Check Device Exchange Value from the My Galaxy app. The discount will be available through online and offline stores.
Customers purchasing the Samsung Galaxy A32 can also avail a cashback of up to Rs. 2,000 by using HDFC Bank credit and debit cards as well as EMI transactions. A cashback of Rs. 1,500 is also available on transactions via ZestMoney.
