Samsung has announced a temporary price cut on its mid-range offering Samsung Galaxy A51 (review). The company via its official account on Twitter tweeted that the handset can now be purchased at Rs 22,499 for the base 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. The scheme is valid until August 15th. That said, the new price tag is yet to reflect in the online marketplace, including Samsung’s official website where the Galaxy A51 is still retailing at its launch price of Rs 23,999, which was later increased to Rs 25,250 due to the new GST rate. The Samsung Galaxy A51 8GB RAM variant, however, is listed on the company’s website at Rs 25,999 – down from its original price of Rs 27,999. The handset comes in Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White and Prism Crush Blue colour options.
