Ready to ditch your old Galaxy S7? Then you should be looking to upgrade to the Galaxy S8.

With its stunning curved 5.8in AMOLED screens and minimal bezels, they’re certainly a sight to behold, while a 12MP camera, waterproofing, fast octa-core Exynos CPU and new AI BIXBY assistant should all help them keep ahead of the competition.

Once you’ve read our hands-on review, you’ll undeniably want to snap one up. Luckily for you, we’ve tracked down the best deals in the UAE to help make your purchasing decision that much easier.


Below are all the pre-order deals for the Galaxy S8. It’s available for pre-order from now until April 15, with orders expected to ship from April 16.

We will continue to update this list as and when deals change, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back often.

We reached out to Etisalat regarding their Galaxy S8 preorders and they responded with the following statement:

“The devices are currently available as standalone (SIM free) during the preordering period. It would be available with contracts once it is officially launched.”

This means that at the moment, you can preorder the device via the UAE’s largest phone carrier without getting tied down to any kind of monthly contract. An odd move considering that in the past they’ve offered similar options to the Du one above.

It might behove you to wait until after the launch to see what kind of contract deals Etisalat will offer if you really want to get your device directly from the carrier. Otherwise you’re probably better off checking out the SIM-free deals below as their price doesn’t vary. Either way, we’ll be updating this list as an when new deals are announced, so check back often.

Plug Ins aren’t offering any fancy bells and whistles with their Galaxy S8 preorders, but they will deliver you the device earlier than any of the other electronics retailers so you can be the envy of your mates for at least a good 24 hours.

Sharaf DG

Letting the side down a bit, Sharaf DG are not only charging a fee if you want the phone delivered (in-store pickup is free, thankfully) they’re not even revealing what day you’re likely to receive the device. Poor effort, we say.

Normally known for their great deals on electronics,’s Galaxy S8 preorder cupboard is uncharacteristically bare. Aside from free delivery, they offer options for extended warranty which include damage protection – but these come at an additional cost. We do however expect to see better deals on the online retailer’s site once the phone is actually out in the market.

  • Free delivery
  • Extended warranty options available (for additional fee)

Delivery date: 15 April

Price: Dhs2.799
