The day has come: after a pre-order period that ended yesterday, Samsung’s new flagship phones — the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ — are now available for purchase in four markets: the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and South Korea.
Samsung said the device would be rolling out to additional markets “in the weeks ahead.”
Samsung’s new phones are available on Samsung’s website with pricing starting at $720 for the S8 and $820 for the S8+. You can also get the phone from all major U.S. carriers: Here are the links for the S8 at AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. For the S8+, go here: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.
