Samsung Galaxy S8’s Pre-order listing in U.K indicates significant increase in price



The South Korean smartphone manufacturer, Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S8 & possibly the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones in the month of April. We already know pretty much everything about the smartphones, thanks to the insane amounts of leaks about this device in the past couple of weeks. We know what the specs could be and in fact, we also know how the smartphone will look like as we have spotted the device in multiple leaked images and videos. Now the only thing which remains to be known is the pricing. However, the new reports from U.K. give us some interesting info on what to expect for pricing as well.

MobileFun, a smartphone retailer in the U.K, has recently started accepting Pre-orders for the upcoming Galaxy S8 and even the Galaxy S8+. Although this is unofficial since Samsung has not made any announcement regarding the same, the pricing is a rather interesting thing to note. The retailer has listed the 64GB Galaxy S8 for €799. This amount roughly translates to about $840 USD, which is significantly more than what we had last year with the Galaxy S7.

The Galaxy S7 had a retail price of about $600 when it launched last year which is a lot less than what we are seeing now with the Galaxy S8. Do make a note that it is not official pricing from the company and it could just be a placeholder, but still does matches some of the rumors which we have heard from the past. However, multiple rumors pointing to a similar pricing seems more than just a coincidence. It was indeed expected that the company will increase the pricing of this particular smartphone in order to recover some costs from the Note 7 disaster.

However, talking about the increase in price, we are getting 64GB instead of the 32GB with the S7 last year. And also we are talking about some huge upgrades like a bezel-less display, Iris scanner, etc. But then considering the fact that the mid-ranged smartphone market is also doing an exceptional job of offering great value for money, it will be interesting to see if anyone would be even interested to pick this up for this price. As mentioned earlier, let’s not start making any assumptions based on the listing, since it is not official. With that said, do let us know what do you think about this increase in price and would you be interested in picking it up for this price? Be sure to let us know in the comments down below and stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more info on this.
