There is nothing worse for consumers of smartphones than to be locked into a wireless carrier after spending a small fortune for a new model. That is why Samsung’s decision to ship unlocked Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones is a good idea for the company.
Samsung is allowing consumers to put their money down on the new Galaxy phones as early as May 31st, 2017. This time frame falls roughly one month earlier than the release of previous Samsung phones.
Pricing for the new Samsung model start at around $725 for the 64gb unlocked S8 and $825 for the S8 Plus unlocked model. You won’t find the S8 Samsung much cheaper than this unfortunately. The option of purchasing the phone through ATT or Verizon will most likely get you alot of free stuff on a payment plan, but over time you will pay more for the phone itself.
You do, however, get the added benefit of a unit without any of the carrier bloatware we’ve become accustomed to with Samsung devices in the past.
So get out your wallet now if you want to take advantage of the unlocked Galaxy phones at a low price.
