Thanks to Apple raising the bar with iPhone X, this pricing seems good enough for an updated S8. However, the way Samsung messed up Oreo update, I doubt the premium is worth paying for. OnePlus devices are still half the price and many SD835 based phones are lesser than 50k INR mark so 60k INR premium for latest and greatest from Samsung might have a lukewarm response at best. Waiting to see where Sony and others end up with SD845 based SoC.

Samsung has nothing radical in spite of its own Exynos processors. Added to that, this high pricing is simply not worth it.
People should remember that buying a "Smartphone" is important for crucial call and data connectivity, GPS and Maps, decent cameras that will help in night as well and management of education and business related functions like file management, presentation and document making, excel working. Say no to expensive gimmicks.
