Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ get massive price cuts

Samsung Galaxy S8

The 64GB/4GB Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are at the receiving end of its first-ever permanent price drop. Samsung has decided to reduce the cost of each just after a temporary Navratri discount that saw each getting Rs 4000 lighter.

Perhaps the response to this lesser rate prompted Samsung to make things more permanent. To recall, the Galaxy S8 and 64GB Galaxy S8+ first arrived in India back in April this year in a 64GB/4GB option at Rs 57900 and Rs 64900, respectively. The company later announced a 128GB/6GB variant of the latter.

After the new cut, the Galaxy S8 is Rs 4000 cheaper at Rs 53900. The 64GB/4GB Galaxy S8+ has gotten an even bigger Rs 6000 markdown to Rs 58900. As for the 128GB/6GB Galaxy S8+, it’s seen multiple reductions in cost over the course of the last few months. It went from selling at Rs 74900 to Rs 65900, a Rs 9000 difference.

Strangely enough, the 128GB/6GB Galaxy S8+ has disappeared from Samsung’s e-store. It’s listed as sold out on Flipkart. It’s not clear if the company has discontinued the variant due to low sales or if this is just a temporary hiccup.
