The hike in prices could be due to the inclusion of 5G support. For the unaware, the Galaxy S20 series did not offer 5G support in India and it was limited to just 4G. This year's Galaxy S21 devices offer 5G even in India.
While Samsung reduced the prices of Galaxy S21 devices in the United States, the South Korean company has increased the prices in India, and as mentioned, the reason could be the inclusion of 5G.
