The 8GB+128GB model is set to sell for around $590, and will be available in Aurora Blue, Black Gold, Obsidian Black, Solar Gold, and Flame Red.
About R8'000, so maybe R10k here. Looks good for the price.

And following the link to the Verge article:
The Z17, which is currently only available in China, will start at CNY2,799 ($411) for a 6GB +64GB or storage version, and top out at CNY3,999 ($583) for the 8GB +128GB of storage option.

I could not justify the $650-$750 (R13,000 - R17,000) Samsung want for the S7/S8.

I looked at the OnePlus3/3T and the ZTE Axon 7 as these have high end specs and review/benchmark very well at $350-$450.
The ZTE Axon 7 with 4GB/64GB, Dual SIM, Snapdragon 820, QHD OLED, stereo audio is about $350.
I got the 4GB/128GB for $400 + duty fees, VAT, etc from AliExpress.
In terms of OS updates, they are better than most and have released Android 7.1.1.
LineageOS 7.1.2 also available.

I wonder when the Axon 8 will launch?
