Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 price drop – Why now is a very good time to buy a Samsung flagship

October might be all about the release of Google’s Pixel 3, Apple’s iPhone XR and the OnePlus 6T but don’t forget .

The Korean technology firm has some very good offers on its devices with prices cut on both the Galaxy S8 and flagship S9.

If you buy either of these phones direct from Samsung, you can expect a discount with the S8 currently costing £609 and the S9 reduced to £679.

There’s also the company’s trade-in scheme, which can reduce the devices by another £250, and zero percent finance is available to those who want to spread the cost.

However, if you shop around things get even better.

Amazon is selling last year’s Galaxy S8 for just £395 and the online retailer has the S9 for £605.
