Samsung Galaxy S8 pricing and photos leak

Alex Kidman 20 March 2017 NEWS


Samsung’s new phones sure do look pretty.

We’re a little over a week away from when Samsung will officially take the wraps off the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+, but at this stage there’s not much we don’t know about the two phones to speak of. The latest leak of information includes indicative pricing and new pictures of the phones in Black Sky, Orchid Grey and Arctic Silver colours, via prolific leaker Evan Blass.

As predicted, the visual style of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ more closely resembles that of the Galaxy S7 Edge, with curved sides on both devices, effectively eliminating the side bezel. In pricing terms, Blass suggests that the S8, S8+, a new Gear 360 camera, Gear VR headset and a phone dock dubbed the DeX will be priced as follows:

Of course, those prices don’t include GST. Here’s how they look at today’s exchange rates to give you an indicative idea of how the Galaxy S8 might be priced locally:

Samsung Euro price Converted price Converted price plus GST
Galaxy S8 799 € $1,113.89 $1,225.28
Galaxy S8+ 899 € $1,253.96 $1,379.36
DeX 150 € $209.23 $230.15
GearVR 129 € $180.00 $198.00
Gear360 229 € $319.25 $351.18

It’s expected that Samsung won’t sit still with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Australia for long after the launch, with models expected to go on sale by late April.
