Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones in April last year for Rs 64,900 in India. A year later, following the launch of the Galaxy S9 series, the S8 series got a price cut and the Galaxy S8+ was priced at Rs. 53,990.
The Galaxy S8+ smartphone seems to be receiving another price cut as a retailer in Mumbai is selling the premium device for Rs 39,990.
