It’s quite obvious, whenever a new flagship hits the market, the manufacturer will cut the price of its predecessor, if any. Specifically, the case is too appropriate for the World’s largest Smartphone Maker, Samsung. As it used to slash the price of its previous flagships considerably upon the emergence of new S or Note Series device. Similarly, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ prices are now down, thanks to the 2018 flagships, the Galaxy S9 and S9+.
With the price-cuts now live, the yesteryear’s S-flagships Galaxy S8 and S8+ are now available in India starting from Rs. 49,990 and Rs. 53,900 respectively. Interestingly, that counts to around Rs. 10,000 less than what the Galaxy S9 and S9+ cost. Since, the latest Galaxy S9’s are just an evolutionary upgrade from the S8’s, this price-cuts ought to make the potential S9 buyers think twice. Despite, the S9’s are still, in our opinion, a good bet if you’re ready to spend around Rs. 50,000.
As of now, the new prices are applied only on Samsung India’s official online store. Flipkart, the official retail partner of S8’s during the launch, perhaps now list the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ for Rs. 53,900 and Rs. 58,900. Hence, to utilize the price-cuts one have to purchase the products from Samsung India Store itself.
