Samsung has permanently reduced the price of its flagship smartphone- the Samsung Galaxy S8+ in India. The Galaxy S8+ is available in two variants- one with 4GB RAM/64GB storage, and the other one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. The 4GB/64GB storage variant now received a price cut and is retailing for Rs. 58,900.
Samsung originally launched the Galaxy S8+ for Rs. 64,700, and it’s Rs. 6,000 price cut. Usually, Samsung is offering this price in e-commerce sale, but now, the device will be available at Rs. 58,900 even after the sale period. The Galaxy S8+ with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage is now available at Rs. 64,900, which is Rs. 1,000 down from its already reduced price of Rs. 65,900. This news was reported by Mahesh Telecom.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is also selling at a reduced price of Rs. 53,900, which is still a worthy price for the smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is selling for Rs. 67,900 on e-commerce site Flipkart.
Samsung has been constantly slashing the prices of the Galaxy S8 lineup, and the recently announced Galaxy Note 8 might receive a price cut in a few days. The device already has competition in the form of Apple iPhone 8 Plus, Google Pixel 2 XL, and if LG launches the V30 at a low price, Samsung will surely reduce the price of the Galaxy Note 8.
The Samsung Galaxy S8+ was launched in India in April 2017, offering flagship specifications on paper. The Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2-inch QHD+ display and is powered by the Exynos 8895 SoC, mated to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There’s a microSD card slot as well for storage expansion.
The smartphone offers a single 12MP sensor at the back, along with an 8MP front-facing camera. The S8+ offers the best camera experience in the sub Rs. 60,000 price segment. This device is backed by a 3500mAh battery and comes laden with Android Nougat out of the box. Samsung is already testing the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the S8+.
Connectivity options in the device include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB Type-C port. It also offers wireless charging. Will you be purchasing the Galaxy S8+ at Rs. 58,900? Let us know by commenting below.
