    According to a fresh report by SamMobile, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 could be priced up to 20% more than the Galaxy S7 series smartphones.

    As cited in the same report, Goldman Sachs (an American multinational finance company), predicts that the introduction of a new AI-based assistant means more raw materials which in turn means more money required to build the smartphone. Moreover, to regain all the losses incurred due to Galaxy Note 7 debacle, the company may indeed increase the final price.
