First announced by Samsung a few weeks ago, the Galaxy A73 is now available. However, no pricing or availability information was provided for individual regions, including India, in that announcement. A good thing therefore is that Samsung’s Indian subsidiary has released official price details earlier today.
INR 41,999 for the entry-level model comes with 8 GB of RAM, while INR 44,999 for the upgraded variant adds an additional 256 GB of storage space.
Galaxy Buds Live true wireless earphones are normally INR 6,990 but are available for INR 499 when you pre-order a Galaxy A73. In addition, Samsung Finance+, ICICI Bank cards, and SBI credit cards are offering up to INR 3,000 in cashback as an introductory offer.
On April 8 at 6 p.m., Samsung is holding a special sale event on its website where additional incentives will be offered. There will be three colour options for the phone: Awesome Mint, Awesome Grey, and Awesome White for Indian customers.
Here are the highlights of the Galaxy A73: a 6-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen with 120 Hz refresh rate, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset, a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera, 5-megapixel depth sensor, and a 5-megapixel macro camera on the back; 32-megapixel front-facing camera; in-display fingerprint sensor; and 5,000mAh battery with 25W fast charging support. Android v12.1 is installed on it.
