You can now pre-order the unlocked Galaxy S8 in the U.S.

If you reside in the United States and you’ve been holding out for a factory unlocked variant of the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can now pre-order one. Pricing starts at $724.99 for the 64GB model of the former and $824.99 for the same version of the latter.

Only Best Buy and Samsung are accepting reservations for the unlocked Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, both of which are aiming to deliver them on Wednesday, May 31. We should also point out that customers hoping to pick up either handset in the Orchid Gray color option will find themselves out of luck, as they’re available solely in the Midnight Black hue.

Specs, specs, specs

For those in need of a refresher, the Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch display, an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 processor, a 12MP rear-facing camera, an 8MP front-facing camera and a 3,000mAh battery. The Galaxy S8 Plus packs almost identical internals, though it has a slightly larger 6.2-inch display and 3,500mAh cell.
