Samsung Gulf Electronics is offering its UAE customers the chance to upgrade to a Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+.

For a limited period, Samsung fans can trade in select old Samsung devices for the latest model at one of its offline and online partners, where they will receive the best price based on the condition of their old device.

The Galaxy S8 range feature its edge-to-edge screen with Samsung detailing it wants users to experience an immersive viewing with its Infinity Display. By toying with the bezel, the screen now takes up 83% of the interface, which means the S8 has a 5.8" screen and the S8 Plus has a 6.2" face.

Tarek Sabbagh, head of IT and Mobile division at Samsung Gulf Electronics, said: "By introducing the trade-in program, we are ensuring that they can benefit from incredible, first to market technologies through a convenient, simple and added-value process."

To be eligible for the Samsung trade-in, selected smartphones will need to qualify; the devices will have to be in a working condition and trade-in pricing are based on these conditions.

Samsung trade-in is available from 26 April to 28 July at offline stores, including Samsung Brandshops, Axiom, Jumbo, Sharaf DG, and Eros, and online store Souq.com.
