Samsung to offer free wireless speaker with purchase of Galaxy S8 in some countries

Samsung will formally announce its new flagships for the first half of the year, the Galaxy S8 and S8+, tomorrow, March 29. Both are supposed to go on pre-order on the same day, though the information hasn't been confirmed yet.

However, it looks like we already know how much they will cost since at least one European carrier listed the phones on its online store. Apparently, if you plan on getting either of the two smartphones, you'll have to come up with €815 for the Galaxy S8 or €925 for its big brother.

The good news is Samsung has teamed up with some carriers and retailers to sweeten the deal on its flagships. For example, Carphone Warehouse will offer customers a free wireless Samsung speaker worth £99.99 with the purchase of Galaxy S8 or S8+.

The deal is available in the UK, but there we're expecting similar offers in other European countries, if not better ones. According to Carphone Warehouse, this is an exclusive offer, so no other retailer in the UK might give away the wireless speaker with the purchase of a Galaxy S8.

Still, there might be other free stuff that authorized resellers and carriers will offer to those who pre-order Samsung's flagships beginning tomorrow (or maybe next week). We'll most likely find out more in less than 24 hours, so stay tuned and follow our live blog of Samsung's Unpacked 2017 event.

This means it will come with a s**tty speaker so they are throwing in a free wireless speaker. They probably waterproofed it and in return got a muted and muffled speaker out of that process

All these deals because their product alone isn't appealing enough.

Yeah but the average consumer doesnt see that... "free" stuff is what they are getting as apposed to what from any other company?
