The Samsung Galaxy S8 is listed on eBay for a whopping Rs 89,999, and the listing claims that it has already sold more than 49 percent of the devices. The eBay seller will be shipping the smartphones from Punjab, and promises delivery by April 3 or April 4. It accepts credit card, EMI, debit card, and netbanking payments. However, as much attractive this deal sounds, we would strongly recommend that you do not buy it. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy F12 launching in India soon: Will it be another renamed Galaxy M device?

To begin with, the fact that Samsung itself has announced that the smartphones will go on sale only on April 21, should be reason enough to not trust this listing. Second, the device is exorbitantly priced. In the US, the Galaxy S8 will be available for around $750 (Rs 48,700 approximately), while the Galaxy S8+ will be available for around $850 (Rs 55,170 approximately). In comparison, the listing price on eBay is almost double. ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+: Hands-on and first impressions roundup

Besides, when you buy a product online, the first thing most of us check to ensure the credibility of the seller and the quality is to check the reviews. On this post, however, if you scroll down there is not even a single review. And if you check the seller s (who goes by the name smartphone2017) rating, he has only 20 reviews on his profile, with a feedback of 88 percent, which is not good enough to trust. Also do read the feedback on his profile, one of which claims The seller contacted us to buy another imported model – fraudulent seller. Therefore, we recommend that you be patient for just few more days, and book your device as soon as Samsung makes it official — on April 21.
