Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone in April 2017 in India. The flagship was launched at a price tag of Rs 64,990. Later after a few months, the smartphone saw a price cut and the price came down to Rs 58,900. In April 2018, the price went down to Rs 53,990. Now again the smartphone witnesses a price drop of Rs 12,000, and it is now available for purchase at Rs 39,990.
The hefty price cut of Rs 12,000 comes months after the launch of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ and a week after the launch of the Galaxy Note 9. It seems that the Galaxy S8+ with 128GB storage is not fast moving so the phone is still at the current price without any price cut.
Buyer will get the Galaxy S8+ with the discounted price across all the offline stores. The smartphone will be available with the new pricing soon on Samsung Shop online, as well as Flipkart. On the other hand, Paytm is offering an additional cashback of Rs 8000 along with the price cut.
