Samsung flagship S8 and S8+ smartphones are on sale for record-low amounts via Groupon until July 18. Last month, Forbes suggested that consumers in the States will be seeing deep discounts on the S8 due to lower than expected sales in the US.

Worldwide, the flagship to beat for 2017 is Samsung's ever-popular Galaxy S8 (including its bigger brother, the S8+). Retailing at US$725 and US$825 respectively, Samsung's flagships are getting more and more expensive. If you were hanging back because of the price, now might be a good time to jump on it, because Groupon is offering both the S8 and S8+ (both CDMA and GSM unlocked) at a record US$150 discount.

The main differences between the S8+ and the S8 are its slightly larger 6.2-inch display and bigger 3500mAh batter (versus the S8's 5.8-inch display and 3000mAh battery). It's up to you whether the larger phone and battery are worth the extra US$100, but they're still the lowest prices we've seen for these ubiquitous flagships. Forbes reported last month that the Galaxy S8 would be seeing discounts in the US due to not meeting the company's sales projections for the country.

This 21 percent discount is available for just a few days, until July 18th.
