Where to buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the U.S., its release date, and its price

U.S. carriers are preparing to release the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ for their customers now that Samsung’s latest high-end phones are official.

The release date for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ on Samsung’s calendar is Friday, April 21. The major carriers and retailers around the world are expected to follow Samsung’s lead and release the phones on that day as well. However, not too many of the carriers have specified which color options will be made available on their respective networks, so keep that in mind when it comes time to pre-order and buy. You might be a little limited in the colors you can choose to get either phone in. But we expect at least the black model to be offered by every carrier as its the most neutral.

Let’s see what Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have to say about the launch of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. All of these carriers will let you pre-order the phones starting Thursday, March 30.

    LO freaking L on the notion of paying $750 or more on a phone that will have unsatisfactory battery life within a year.
