As per the rumours are spreading, Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) will be rolled out in India within the upcoming months. According to the sources, Samsung Galaxy A8 with its price has been listed on Indian import-export website Zauba.
The listing proves the fact that the Galaxy A8 (SM-A810F) is presently being exported from South Korea to New Delhi. But, the price on the website has seemed Rs. 13,635 instead of Rs. 39,000 that has been decided by the company while it launched in South Korea last month of this year. It also gets to know that the disclosed price on Zauba is only for customs purpose, not for official purpose.
As mentioned above, the Samsung Galaxy A8 was unveiled in South Korea in September 2016 with a pricing of KRW 649,000 which is almost equal to Rs. 39,000 according to the Indian currency. However, there is a huge variation in the price tag, the disclosure on Zauba should be held only with a pinch of salt.
