We've been hearing a lot of claims about the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus over these past few weeks. According to a source, renders already leaked giving us a glimpse of what the upcoming flagship may look like. Samsung confirmed recently that it's not going to reveal the handset at MWC 2017 but it will confirm the Galaxy S8 launch date at the event. While we won't know until the launch event how much both models are going to cost, purported color options and exact pricing for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been coming out.

Samsung Galaxy S8 And Galaxy Plus S8 Prices

According to a new report, Samsung is going to match Apple's planned increased price which will see both the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 retail for more than $1,000. Like the previous years, the pricing details again came from Eastern European retailers, in this instance Ukraine's Hryvnia. The Samsung Galaxy S8 price is said to be about US$950 or AU$1,300 roughly while the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus price is said to US$1,050 or AU$1,400.  The earlier reports had also suggested a similar pricing, about 15-20 percent extra than the Galaxy S7. On the other hand, reports also claimed that the upcoming Galaxy flagship has kicked up an OLED display battle with Apple's iPhone 8. Sadly, for Apple, Samsung Display is the only supplier that can supply millions of such displays, and Apple is only dependent on Samsung Display.

Moreover, it appears that rumors about Samsung raising the price of its next flagship killer have turned out to be accurate, it may carry at least a $100 premium over the Galaxy S7. The price will obviously vary slightly in different markets but at this rate, it's still going to be slightly more pricey than its predecessor. Reports claiming that Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy S8 on March 29 at a special event in New York City are yet to be officially confirmed.
