It may have been succeeded by the Galaxy Note 9, but Samsung’s 2017 flagship – Galaxy Note 8 – is still (and will continue to be, at least for the next few years) one of the best top-tier smartphones you can buy right now. The smartphone (or phablet) recently got a big price cut, bringing its price to Rs 42,990. However, if you act fast, you can get the Note 8 for even lesser.

All three color variants of the flagship – Midnight Black, Orchid Grey, and Maple Gold – are available at the discounted price.
