Procedure for Pre-booking:
For the online option, the pre-booking can be done from the Samsung e-store starting from Monday by making an initial payment of ₹2,000. While pre-booking, buyers would have to fill in the required details such as the name, mobile number, email ID, color of the smartphone etc. Once the pre-booking is done, buyers would then receive a notification via SMS/ email from the portal confirming the registration.
After the pre-booking process, Samsung or its authorized third party would provide information regarding the balance amount and the dates by when it would have to be paid to receive the smartphone. Now, if this said balance amount isn’t paid by before the due date, the pre-booking amount would have to be refunded within 7 working days.
In order to pre-book the smartphones at Samsung’s offline stores, buyers would have to register via the Pre-book app available at the respective outlets, starting from Monday. The same booking amount of ₹2,000 is applicable for this method as well.
