    Samsung always trying to one-up Apple.. even in price :/

    This Galaxy S8 rumor could be very bad news for Android fans – BGR

    So article has rumored price for S8 at 0-750, 0 for S8 Plus-galaxy-s8-and-s8-plus-price-colors.jpg

    Saw something today about the S8 being $950 and the plus being $1050.

    Ridiculous.

    Just imagine the Note 8 price then... $1150?!

    I honestly won't pay that much full retail for a phone... especially an Android phone. It just doesn't hold value to me. It may be pushing it for me even getting it through my company account through corp contract pricing. Last year through corp, a Note 7 was going to run me $399 ($299 for the S7 Edge and $199 for the S7). It will be interesting to see the corporate pricing when official release because I could be looking at $399 for an S8, $499 for a Plus and the Note 8 should be around $599?!!!

    I don't think it will come to fruition but at these prices I would love if they surprised us with S-Pen accessory/functionality on the S8/S8+... because the Note 8 is sounding it's gonna be more than I care to spend regardless at full retail or corp pricing.

    LMAO, no way I'm paying MORE than a Note 7 for a standard S8 even.

    A lot of time these price rumors are inaccurate, at least for North America. Usually they're cheaper. I remember the Note 7 rumors at first were like $950 or something. I can see the S8 Plus being $850 possibly though. Even then with the Note 7 debacle that is too high IMO after the brand image took a hit.

    Ukraine slaps a 20% VAT on everything. So take that with a grain of salt. Throw in the fact that Ukraine's economy is a mess and they are in a proxy war with Russia in the eastern part of the country, Samsung likely added the economic instability in those prices.

    Right. I wouldn't compare prices in other places to the US. Especially since we get subsidies

    I've been reading recent rumors of the S8 starting at $1000 US, which is crazy high IMO. If that rumor is true, I'll definitely not be upgrading to the S8.

    So this is my official guess for the pricing of Samsung's latest flagship devices. I really don't think they will have the reported price of over $900 USD, those 'rumours' i feel is just just 'click bait' to increase page views. If Samsung keep it below $700 and have the awesome new design. I think they will sell really well

    $699 for the S8
    $799 for the S8+ (Plus)
    $849 for the Note 8

    After the Note debacle, Samsung may very well want to keep prices down to get consumers to come back.

    Sounds about right but I would think the Note 8 would be more, however with the debacle last year and the stigma with Samsung, raising prices IMO is not a good idea when you're trying to win people over. The Note is a niche device so they can get away with the high price to an extent, the S8 line though pricing it at niche pricing is a bad thing IMO especially when many of those buyers might be regular smartphone users, and not power users. They might opt for another brand then that is a bit cheaper.

    Will be interesting what the G6 looks like. From the early looks it might be a heavy hitter this time finally. I personally would go with Samsung again as that is what I use right now but from the looks of it I might give it a serious look if the S8 is way overpriced or specs not up there.

    I'm considering the S8, G6, 3T and P10 as my next device.

    Come on Samsung, do you want to drive away more supporters after the Note 7 saga

    Because that is the way to drive away your remaining supporters.

    Yea..I dont see that many Note 7 owners after going through two recalls for phone meltdowns, paying 4 digits on the next note or S8 variants. I dont think I would

    They wouldn't even give the phones back even though they knew there was a possibility that the phone could catch fire. I think they'll pay it with no problem. I sent mine back, but the recall doesn't affect my future purchasing decisions.

    Yea. I do NOT want to go through that again and how it took TWO months to get my refund after fighting for hours and hours with Tmobile. I probably will purchase it in store this time around instead of pre order in case something goes wrong with it and maybe wait a couple weeks to buy it. If it turns out to be a debacle again I think I'm done with Samsung.

    Phones are getting out of control with their release prices. I prefer to stay under 700 including taxes at preorder

    Yes, hope so, if not Samsung is just digging their own grave. Already I believe the pre-order numbers will be affected due to Note 7 phobia, and if it's $1k, they can kiss majority of their customers goodbye.

    Over $900 for a phone?? And I thought the V20 was expensive. I found a 'deal' for about $700 for the early release package. But $900+? Jeez. I'd take that money and put it towards a HP Spectre x360 2-in-1. Only a few hundred away from it with $900.

    I agree. Also I probably will not pre order this time around the S8 Plus. I don't want to get burned again if the phone is a fireball or other flop. It was a nightmare ordeal to get a refund back that took almost 3 months to get back to the point I was going to go to the attorney general.

    If the phone is priced over 900 I think Samsung is doing more damage to their mobile division. A $1000 I won't buy. Can buy better stuff with that cash.

    Can we wait until the prices are announced before we start nailing them to the cross? lol

    I'm expecting about a 20 percent price increase from last year.

    So going by the Samsung site for their price on a AT&T S7 32GB and S7 Edge 32GB

    $694.99 + 20% = $833.99 for an S8

    $794.99 + 20% = $953.99

    The Note 7 price varied between $834-880 + 20% = $1000.80 for the Note 8
