Vodafone allegedly reveals Samsung Galaxy S8 price in Europe


The Samsung Galaxy S8 and its larger sibling, the S8 Plus, are expected to finally make their official appearance tomorrow, but the details around the two phones keep on seeping. The latest piece of the large S8 puzzle is the price: we've heard from various sources that the price of the new phones will be higher than that of the Galaxy S7 family, with slightly different prices for the different markets.

Today, we hear news about the price of the Galaxy S8 family in Europe, and the Czech Republic in particular. The information allegedly comes from Vodafone Czech Republic. Here are the numbers:

  • Galaxy S8 - 21 977 Czech crowns (equivalent of around €815)
  • Galaxy S8+ - 24 977 Czech crowns (equals €925)

Keep in mind that the prices in euro are indicative for the average prices of the Galaxy S8 in Europe.

As you can clearly see, the trend is indeed confirmed: the Galaxy S8 will likely cost more than its predecessor, at least initially. In comparison, last year we had the following prices for the S7 series in Europe:

  • Galaxy S7 - €700
  • Galaxy S7 Edge - €800

We are curious to see how customers will react to those higher new prices. Chances are that in the United States, where the real cost of a phone remains hidden in your monthly fee in one form or another, this higher price will be less noticeable, but what about the global market, where users commonly pay the full retail price of a device? Only time will tell.

They can keep it... I understand that Samsung is really innovating and they are the best in tech but prices are getting ridiculous... No wonder that they don't sell so many high end phones ... also Samsung has not blind fans like apple

"Samsung has not blind fans like apple" Ha ha ha. Good joke. You have real potential to be a stand up comedian.

Sorry , i said iPhone 6 plus. From the way you protect apple topics , you most likely are the kind of a guy who'd buy a iPhone 5s in 2017 and feel so proud of owning a iSheep product. Hahahahahahaha

He's technically correct, Samsung has not blind fans like Apple (whatever that means). Samsung fanboys tend to be blind and deaf.

LOL, +1 to you.

Ah! That's not fair, eh Mr. notfair...? Anyhow, Samsung ought to make a "Mini" version for us mere mortals with smaller display and perhaps a slightly weaker hardware at old S7's price... Oh well, G'Day!

**also Samsung has no blind fans like apple** That's the truest fact I've heard in a very long time.. Apple users uses outdated hardware and they've always been blind to see it and they always will be #coreStupidity

You assume that the average person can differentiate between new and outdated internal hardware. The majority of buyers either want a cheap phone (no preference except for price), a Samsung phone, or an iPhone. They don't stand there comparing benchmarks lol

Wait for some months.... Tim Cook will be ripping their loyal customer iAss with iToy 7s (Atleast 1000$ ....with older generation hardware) Poor iSheep. If Samsung is asking for 800$ for S8 atleast they are giving world's most advanced hardware and software...

16. kumar1234 unregistered

Yeah, Samsung is giving the world's most advanced hardware and software to make it easier for IS terrorist to make bomb. ;)

Out of the topic....lol Apple can charge what ever they want because they have their own unique software. S8 has just the typical normal android which even a $150 smartphone has. It's time Samsung get down from their AMOLED horses and face the reality. They can't keep on marketing their screens every year and ask more and more money for the same thing.

Where are those f.ers that keep saying Apple raises their price every year and they never have, but when Samsung is doing it.... huh?

They're hypocrites. These people claim Apple users as sheep but in reality there are more blind Android fanboys than Apple fanboys.

800/900 Euro for what? A slightly updated S7 edge with smaller battery? No thank you. You can keep it for that price. Notice me if the price drops below 500 bucks.

The galaxy s8 looks to be a way better phone but I'd still take the s7 edge over it because of the stupid aspect ratio

19. Rampage_Taco

Posts: 1036; Member since: Jan 17, 2017

Well the s8 is similar in size to the s7 edge so why not have a similarstarting price? Then as usual a $100 mark up for the larger size

They're asking too much for their low quality products + poor management + safety hazards.

17. peace247 unregistered

And almost $900 for s**tty over sized iPhone 7plus is justifiable?

21. Plasticsh1t

Posts: 3100; Member since: Sep 01, 2014

No it's not justifiable. Why would it?

31. piyath

Posts: 2445; Member since: Mar 23, 2012

Yes it is justifiable because it runs a unique OS and has some unique best in class software features. And iPhone 7 plus has the best hardware on a mobile phone too. So yes it is so justifiable. BTW these are the right prices for the 7 plus. 32GB $769 128GB $869 256GB $969
