Just two weeks ago, Samsung unveiled the much anticipated duo of its latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Samsung has already started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in select markets from this week.
As expected, the Korean electronics giant is offering incentives to customers who get their pre-orders in before the handset is actually offered for sale at end of this month.
After the Note 7 fiasco, Samsung is hoping to get back on track with Galaxy S8 and S8+. According to official sources the pre-orders are almost double than the S7 and S7 Edge, showing that customers are still interested in this brand.
Samsung is offering free VR headsets, Bluetooth speakers and other goodies for pre-orders in some markets, however in Pakistan the company will be giving cash vouchers worth Rs. 6,000 to those who pre-book their phone.
The expected price of Galaxy S8 would be around 86,000 – which means that customers who pre-order will get it for Rs. 80,000 instead.
How to pre-order Galaxy S8 in Pakistan?
The pre-order process isn’t simple as there is no option to order online. Samsung says that customers can visit their nearest retailer to pre-order the Galaxy S8 and S8+. There they have to pay Rs. 10,000 in advance, submit copy of their CNIC and fill out a form.
The phones will be available for pre-order until April 27 and customers can get them starting April 28.
Order Through Telemart:
Telemart, one of the popular e-commerce websites in Pakistan is offering these phones on pre-order as well. The customers will have to pay token money, however how will they pay it, Telemart hasn’t specified, nonetheless they will get Rs. 6,000 discount.
The price of S8 on Telemart is Rs. 87,000 and the price for S8+ is 97,000. The phones are available in 3 colors, Maple Gold, Orchid Gray and Midnight Black. While Telemart promises to deliver phones on April 25 and will provide official warranty, however we haven’t confirmed these details.
