Samsung launched its flagship Galaxy Note 8 in India earlier in September of this year. Now, a couple months later, the Korean giant has decided to make its most-expensive device a little affordable for the netizens. It has announced an official price cut for their flagship device, which sells on Amazon, along with additional offers that make the Galaxy Note 8 an attractive buy for the price.
Upon launch, the Galaxy Note 8 was retailing at a price of ₹67,900, which has now been slashed by ₹3,000 in time for the holiday season and New Year’s. This means the Galaxy Note 8 is now available at a discounted price of ₹64,900, exclusively on Amazon India. But, that’s not it.
If you’re planning to purchase a flagship device in the coming weeks, then Amazon.in also you a cashback of another ₹4,000. This will, however, require you complete the purchase using an HDFC credit card. So, if you avail this discount along with the price cut of the Galaxy Note 8 then you’ll have purchased the device for just ₹60,900. And this price, in my opinion, is one of the best deals you can get on Samsung’s massive flagship device.
