The Samsung Galaxy S10 series is set for its global launch on February 20, and it looks like Indian users won’t need to wait too long to get the device.

According to 91Mobiles, citing a Samsung distributor as the source, the Galaxy S10 range will launch in India on March 6. That means Indian users will apparently be able to pre-order the phones two weeks after the global launch, as they’re tipped to go on sale in the region on March 15.

The outlet also revealed tentative pricing for the phones, starting at 50,000 rupees (~$698) for the Galaxy S10e, 65,000 rupees (~$907) for the Galaxy S10, and 75,000 rupees (~$1,047) for the Galaxy S10 Plus. The source told 91Mobiles that the price difference between variants of the same device will be roughly 4,000 rupees (~$56).

These prices seem cheaper than the rumored European pricing, which apparently starts at 749 euros (~$853), 899 euros (~$1,024), and 999 euros (~$1,138) respectively.
