You can get the new Samsung Galaxy S8 from amaysim too, from $1,199 outright

Most of the carrier plans we’ve announced for the new Samsung Galaxy S8 have been from the more ‘traditional’ carriers, which offer the new handset for $0 upfront, paid off over 12 or 24 months with the ongoing plan costs. amaysim is known for their contract-free options, but they don’t want their customers to miss out on the new Samsung range either.

Thus, amaysim have announced their pre-order for the Galaxy S8 range is now open, allowing customers to order an outright handset for delivery from April 21, alongside a new or existing amaysim month-by-month plan. As a bonus offer, those pre-ordering before April 28 will receive a bonus Samsung Gear VR, and three free renewals on any of their UNLIMITED plans.

The outright costs of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are $1,199 and $1,349 respectively, and they’re available on any of amaysim’s plans, though the UNLIMITED plans are the ones with the bonus three months free. Here’s the basic run-down:

If you’re keen on taking the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ out on amaysim’s unlimited plans, you just need to head to their website, select your desired phone and plan, and place your pre-order for shipment in a couple of weeks.

Depending on your plan, you could (effectively) save up to $150 off the price of your Galaxy S8, with three months free access on this deal. Well worth considering, though of cousre, people will need some cash up front to get the phone.
