Unlocked version of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in US arriving on May 9

If you live in the US and want to grab your own Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, you can already make a pre-order of it and wait for the official release date. But now, you will also have an opportunity to get an unlocked version of the devices.

The retailer Best Buy has announced that they will have unlocked versions of the S8 and S8 Plus handsets. Both will be available on May 9, which is a bit far away from the device’s official release date, which is April 21st. The price for the unlocked Galaxy S8 will be $724.99, while the S8 Plus’s will be $824.99. With this, you are actually saving $25 by buying the unlocked version of the devices.

Previously, we’ve seen this kind of selling unlocked devices with the Galaxy S7 flagships. The device is still working properly and getting its updates on time, even though they are still running Android Marshmallow on them. So still, you will have to think twice before buying the unlocked version of either Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus.
