If you are planning to buy the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and happen to own a Jio connection, there's good news for you. Reliance has announced a special offer on the 256GB variant of the recently-launched S9+ flagship under which Reliance is offering a 70 per cent buyback on the S9 + 256GB after a year.
The offer can be availed of exclusively on Reliance Digital and Jio stores across the country and also on Jio.com. Jio users opting for the offer can buy the S9+ 256GB at the MRP and provided they purchase recharges of Rs 2,500 over a period of 12 months, they can redeem 70 per cent of the cost by giving back the smartphone and its accessories in good condition within a period of March 16, 2019, to June 15, 2019.
The offer is particularly useful for users who tend to upgrade to the latest smartphones every year. Reliance has partnered with multiple finance companies to offer easy EMIs.
To recall, Samsung officially launched the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the S9+ in India at an event held in New Delhi last week and officially went up for sale starting March 16. The 64 GB storage variant of the S9 has been priced at Rs 57,900, while the 256 GB edition will cost Rs 65,900. As for the bigger-screened S9+, the 64 GB variant has been listed at Rs 64,900 and the 256 GB version will cost Rs 72,900. A 70 per cent buyback value on the MRP is almost Rs 51,000 but do note, there will be variations on the value depending on the company's terms and conditions.
Jio also announced an exclusive offer for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ during launch, under which Jio users will get 1TB of 4G data along with unlimited voice calls and messages with a 1-year validity at Rs. 4,999. The recharges would cost around Rs 15,000 without the offer. Users also get a Jio Prime membership and access to Jio apps free of cost.
Samsung has also partnered with Indian telecom operators Airtel and Reliance Jio and claims that data speeds on the S9 and S9+ will be 2.5 times that of other smartphones on these networks.
