Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy S8+ with Exynos chipset goes on sale in the US


Customers in the United States have the pleasure the being able to purchase the Qualcomm-based Samsung Galaxy S8+ from either of the major carrier and retailers across the country. The smartphone is available unlocked or carrier-bound, so depending on your budget, you can get whichever you want.

However, a new seller is now offering the so-called EMEA version of the Galaxy S8+, which comes with the powerful Exynos 8895 chipset inside. On top of that, the Exynos-based Samsung Galaxy S8+ packs not one, but two SIM slots that can be used to add another SIM or memory card.

The smartphone is available via eBay for just $804.99 and no sales tax except in Florida and California. Usually, the Galaxy S8+ sells in the US for $824.99 plus tax. Although the Exynos-powered Samsung Galaxy S8+ is region locked to the Americas, you can easily unlock it by making or taking a five-minute call in any other country.

It's also worth noting the smartphone is available in either Midnight Black or Maple Gold. Keep in mind that this version of Samsung Galaxy S8+ will only work on GSM networks, so it does not support CDMA carriers like Sprint, Verizon, Boost, and Cricket.
