It's a Chinese price, so end results will vary. But, it falls in line with previous leaks and corroborates some rather undigested details. After all, not a lot of folks can afford a $800 device, even if you factor in carrier plans here in the US. The Samsung Galaxy S8 will live up to the mark of a premium device. It'll also place Samsung effectively in the ranks of manufacturers with outrageously priced devices, right alongside Apple.
All the fancy materials on the S8 will come at a cost. Samsung will equip the device with OLED screens, an iris scanner, no buttons at the front and other details. Not to mention that the 10nm Snapdragon 835 isn't a cheap processor either, despite the fact that Samsung manufacturers it in-house. Thoughts?
