At long last, Samsung has put the Galaxy S8 rumors to rest.

At its unveiling event on Wednesday, Samsung rolled out its latest flagship phones, the Galaxy S8 and S8+, along with some other super cool new hardware including Samsung DeX, a redesigned Gear 360 camera, a Gear VR controller and more. 

But perhaps most importantly, Samsung finally told the world how much the new mobile devices will cost — and it’ll cost you more than the iPhone.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are the first major Samsung phones to launch since the infamously explosion-prone Galaxy Note 7 devices, which led two global recalls and were eventually discontinued.

Both phones will feature Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 835 system-on-a-chip (SoC), 4GB of RAM and run Android 7.0 Nougat with a redesigned TouchWiz skin, which means faster and more efficient performance is in store.

The devices will be available in a variety of fun colors like midnight black, orchid gray and arctic silver in the U.S. Maple gold and coral blue will also be options in South Korea.

Here’s a price breakdown for individual carriers:

Verizon

The Galaxy S8 will be available for $30 per month for 24 months at a retail price of $720. The Galaxy S8+ will be $35 per month for 24 months at a retail price of $840.  

AT&T

AT&T customers can get the Galaxy S8 for the total price of $750 or the S8+ for $850 total. The company will charge $25 per month for 30 months, for the S8, and $28.34 for the S8+.

T-Mobile

The Galaxy S8 will be available at a retail price of $750. It will have a $30 down payment and cost $30/month for 24 months on the T-Mobile Equipment Installment Plan. On Demand customers can snag the device for $0 down and payments of $33/month.

The S8+ will be available at a retail price of $850, with $130 down and $30/month for 24 months on the Equipment Installment Plan.

MetroPCS

The Galaxy S8 will be available for MetroPCS customers starting April 21 for $729.

Other retailers:

Best Buy

If you’re into deals you might also want to consider purchasing the S8 or S8+ from Best Buy store as opposed to a mobile carrier.

A representative from Best Buy told Mashable the store is offering customers “up to $100 off” new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ provided they pre-order.

“Customers can also layer our deal with Samsung’s Gear VR offer and select carrier offers. Samsung’s offer includes a free Gear VR with controller and $50 bonus Oculus content with pre-order and qualified activation of the Galaxy S8 or S8+.”
