The Galaxy S8 is Samsung's first flagship release this 2017 and it is also the company's first flagship to follow the discontinued Note 7 phablet. With that, this phone has become more widely talked about than its predecessors and it has also become highly anticipated for the past months. Needless to say, the Galaxy S8's arrival is coming soon and it is greatly evidenced by the discount given to the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Price 2017
The S7 Edge is now starting to get better prices as its successor awaits launch. Although the discount mentioned by Phone Arena isn't directly from Samsung, it's also from a giant third-party seller. Apparently, Amazon had listed a deal for the Galaxy S7 Edge that offered it for just $587 instead of the usual $739. This is a solid 20 percent discount that's pretty much a big deal.
Of course, this deal isn't perfect as it refers to an international S7 Edge version, so it doesn't have a warranty. It is also powered by an Exynos processor instead of a Snapdragon 820. Nevertheless, even though it runs Android Marshmallow from the box, it is also eligible for a Nougat update. Hopefully, though, this phone will be given a discount by other sellers as well especially as the Galaxy S8's arrival draws near.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Release
According to the most recent leaks and details, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be unveiled March 29. It has already been confirmed earlier that this device won't be showcased at the Mobile World Congress 2017 event, but initially, no solid info was shared regarding the exact release schedule of the Galaxy S8. Eventually, though, a reliable source has spread the word that the new Samsung Galaxy phone will be launched by the end of March and will be released globally on April 21.
