The 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 is available for pre-order at $724.99, while the 6.2-inch S8+ is $824.99. The only color option is midnight black. Both models can be pre-ordered at Samsung.com or Best Buy, and they'll ship starting on May 31, when they'll also arrive in Best Buy stores.

While the sticker prices can be hard to swallow, you might end up saving money on your contract with an unlocked phone if you're not a heavy talker or mobile data fiend, since you can use the unlocked S8 on mobile virtual network operators. Many of these operators, like Ting or Mint, have plans that offer significant savings over the pricey unlimited plans that are increasingly in vogue at big carriers like T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint.

Meanwhile, if you'd like to save money on your plan but aren't interested in spending a lot of money upfront, Samsung is also offering no-cost financing options for the unlocked phones. The 24-month financing plans cost $30 per month for the S8 and $34 per month for the S8+. Apple, meanwhile, offers 18-month financing options for its unlocked iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, which are slightly cheaper than their Samsung counterparts at $649 and $769, respectively.

Watch Huawei unveil the P20 live right here

Huawei is about to unveil its brand new flagship smartphone — the P20. While many details have already leaked, this is going to be an interesting launch. The company chose to unveil its new device at the magnificent Grand Palais in Paris. This is the first time Huawei chooses Paris to launch a major new device. Carriers and retailers in the U.S. have stopped selling Huawei devices. That might be the reason why the press conference is happening in Europe. Huawei is now the second largest phone manufacturer in the world behind Samsung and just slightly above Apple. The P10 was a great device, so it’s clear that many Android fans will pay attention to today’s launch.
