    Limited-edition Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 launched in India

    The recently launched Galaxy S9 and S9+ are not very different from the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in terms of their design language and features. Given the similarities, one would assume Samsung to discontinue or discourage sales of the Galaxy S8 series to nudge the customers towards the Galaxy S9 duo. However, Samsung seems to think otherwise and is aggressively pushing the older models without any fear of sales cannibalization.

    Available for purchase starting April 13

    Earlier this month, Samsung India announced a substantial price-cut for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ to make them more appealing. Before the price cut, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ were priced too close to the current Galaxy flagship smartphones, effectively discouraging any sales. To make the Galaxy S8 even more compelling, Samsung is now bringing the Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 to India. This color variant was already available in select markets around the world. Samsung currently offers the Galaxy S8 in Midnight Black, Maple Gold, and Orchid Gray color options in India.

    Naturally, the specs of all these Galaxy S8 color variants remain the same, so it's only the striking new color that's the highlight here. The Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 will be available for purchase starting April 13 at a price of Rs.49,990. Paytm will offer an additional cashback of Rs.10,000 at all leading retail stores to sweeten the deal.
