Samsung, earlier today announced its flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and the S9+ in the Indian market. And at the same time, the company has announced telecom operator partner offers for both the smartphones. The South Korean company has partnered with leading telecom operators Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India and Reliance Jio to bring best-in-class bundled tariff offers. However, Reliance Jio’s prepaid offer of Rs 4,999 and Airtel’s double data offer on postpaid plans are the best ones of all. Read on to know more about these offers:
Reliance Jio- Samsung Galaxy S9 Offer
Firstly, Reliance Jio introduced a special tariff plan of Rs 4,999, which offers benefits for one year. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ users on Jio recharging with the Rs 4,999 plan will receive 1TB of 4G data along with unlimited voice calls and SMS. And the best part is the plan is valid for one year, and there’s no daily data usage limit or voice calling limit. SMS, though are limited to 100 per day as per Trai’s rule. Additionally, users will also be entitled to complimentary Jio Prime Membership as a part of this offer.
Bharti Airtel-Samsung Galaxy S9 Offer
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ users can avail a ‘Double Data’ offer on Airtel’s popular myPlan Infinity Postpaid plans. With myPlan Infinity 499, users get 80GB of data (instead of 40GB data), unlimited calling, and a one year Amazon Prime membership worth Rs 999. With myPlan Infinity 799, users get 120GB of data, unlimited calling, a one year Amazon Prime membership and one free child connection.
Both plans also offer a free subscription to Airtel TV and Wynk Music. It’s unknown at the moment whether other premium plans such as Rs 2,999, Rs 1,999 are eligible for the offer or not. Airtel prepaid users can also enjoy the Rs 199 prepaid plan which gives benefits of 1.4GB data per day, and unlimited voice calls for 28 days.
Alongside bundled tariff plans, Airtel is also bringing the Galaxy S9 to its Airtel Online Store and that too with a postpaid bundled offer. The Galaxy S9 buyers on Airtel Online Store will be given an offer to choose Airtel’s network for 24 months. Firstly, these customers should make a down payment of Rs 9,999, after which the device will be delivered to their doorstep. And for the next two years, Airtel postpaid users will have to pay an amount of Rs 2,499 every month to enjoy tariff benefits. Do make a note that Airtel and Samsung are yet to reveal details about the Rs 2,499 plan benefits though.
Vodafone India- Samsung Galaxy S9 Offer
And lastly, Samsung also teamed up with India’ second largest telecom operator Vodafone India. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ users, who are new or existing customers of Vodafone will get a free subscription to Netflix for a year on Vodafone RED plans starting at Rs 999. Do make a note that this offer will be valid only until April 30, 2018.
Furthermore, the S9 and S9+ Vodafone prepaid users will get additional 10GB free data every month for the next ten recharges of Rs 199 tariff plan. The Rs 199 tariff plan usually offers 1.4GB data per day, unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS per day for 28 days from the date of recharge.
So these are the tariff bundled offers with the newly launched Galaxy S9 and S9+. Our pick is the Reliance Jio’s prepaid plan as it offers a whopping 1TB data without any limit for one year. And Airtel’s postpaid offer is also a decent one.
