When Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ first launched in the U.S., they had price tags of about $750 and $850 for the carrier-based variants, respectively.
A few weeks later, the unlocked variants of the two phones hit the market priced at $726 and $826 via the official Samsung website. However, you can now have either phone at a massive discount that could see you take back home an impressive $98.
If you purchase the standard Samsung Galaxy S8 from eBay’s Never MSRP, a seller who has a positive feedback of 99.8%, you only pay $639.99. This will leave you with a cool $86 compared to buying the phone from Samsung’s store. As for the high-end Galaxy S8+, the same retailer wants you to part with $727.99, which saves you an even better $98.
According to Never MSRP, these deals are limited to quantity and so far, the Galaxy S8 has sold an impressive 1348 units while the S8+ has sold 451 units. In short, you need to hurry or else you might miss out on these deals.
To make the deals even sweeter, the seller has a 30-day money back guarantee on the duo, which means you can have it shipped back just in case you don’t like something about the phone. Both Galaxy S8 and S8+ units being sold are new, unlocked and can be used worldwide on GSM carriers. So, if the seller can ship to your region, lucky you!
Unlike U.S. variants of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, these two are based on the Exynos 8890 SoC – same as those sold in Europe and other markets across the globe. Note that this has no effect on the performance and if any, according to benchmarks, the Exynos 8890 SoC is slightly better than the Snapdragon 835 SoC. The phones also support dual-SIM connectivity.
As for the rest of the specs, they remain unchanged. These include a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED (6.8-inch for the S8+) display with QHD+ resolution, 4GB RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, a 12MP/8MP camera combination and a 3000mAh (3500mAh for the S8+) battery unit.
