New report claims Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders start on March 29 in Europe

Just when we thought we've got it all figured out, a new report emerges that contradicts some of the things we know so far about the Galaxy S8. Samsung has already confirmed its flagship will be officially unveiled on March 29, but the South Korean company won't reveal any details on the phone's availability yet.

Even though previous rumors suggest Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be made available for pre-order on April 7, a new report says otherwise. Dutch blog AndroidWorld cites trustworthy sources that claim Samsung Galaxy S8 should be up for pre-order the same day it gets revealed, March 29.

The information specifically refers to the Galaxy S8's availability in the Netherlands and Belgium, but it's likely that other European markets will open pre-orders for the flagship at the same time.

As far as pricing goes, there aren't any surprises. The same sources indicate Samsung Galaxy S8 prices start at €799, whereas the Galaxy S8+ will cost €899. Unlike previous years, Samsung won't be offering any bonuses for those who pre-order either of the two smartphones this time.

The only thing that remains to be determined is when exactly the pre-ordered smartphones will be delivered. For the time being, various reports claim the Galaxy S8 could hit the shelves between early and late April, which doesn't help us much.

Obviously, the pre-order and release dates for the Galaxy S8/S8+ could change at any time if the need arises, so take the information with a grain of salt for now.

Are you kidding? The most expensive variant of theS8 Plus costs €900, as mentioned in this article. Go check up on the European price of the iPhone 7 Plus, then come back and admit that your claim about "Saying that iPhone is the most overpriced phone isn't valid anymore" isn't valid either.

It is. In the US the 256GB is $969. I have 256GB + 64GB for $850. Along with QHD vs FHD. Headphone jack, IP68, Iris Scanner, Fast Charging, brighter display , bigger, bigger battery, 2.5 day battery life, splitscreen and more. The iPhome cost more and has almost none if that. Oh and i dont habe tonuse iTines to get music on my device. Windows Explorer trabsfers files far faster than iTunes ever will. I transferred 128GB of media to my SD in less than 2 hours, and the iPhone takes 4 to just half that via iTunes. Way overpriced for its capabilities. But people worry about how fast an app opens. Hle about itbtakes the iPhone longer transfer a similar amount of data.
