Samsung Launches Galaxy S8 In India

20 April 2017, 09:59 | Justin Tyler

The Samsung Galaxy S8 was announced just last month, and started shipping to pre-order customers on April 19. The smartphone comes bundled with AKG headphones. Coming from Samsung, these smartphones are the flagship products from the company this year. Dropping the iconic home button in the latest devices, Samsung has opted for an nearly bezel-less front design with a screen-to-body ratio of 83 percent. Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus goes for pre-orders starting Wednesday on Flipkart The devices go on sale starting from 5th May for a price tag of Rs 57,900 for the Galaxy S8, and Rs 64,900 for the Galaxy S8 Plus. These phones can be prebooked from today and will be available on May 5. This should not be a deal-breaker for potential buyers in India, as the two SoCs were recently spotted to have comparable performance - in fact, the Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC beat the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC in some benchmarks. The storage is further expandable up to 256GB using a microSD card support. "The Galaxy S8 has a 5.8" sAMOLED display on the front and the larger variant the Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2" sAMOLED display. Both the devices have a 12 MP camera at the back with a f/1.7 aperture. On the front, there is an 8MP camera this time around, again with the same f/1.7 aperture. This year, Samsung has played safe with the batteries and we have a 3,000 mAh battery on the Galaxy S8 and a 3,500 mAh battery on the Galaxy S8+. The phone has an Iris scanner along with a Pressure sensor, Accelerometer, Barometer, Fingerprint sensor, Gyro sensor, Geomagnetic sensor, Hall sensor, HR sensor, Proximity sensor and RGB Light sensor. The smartphones are running Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box and have a dedicated button on the side for Bixby, Samsung's new AI personal assistant. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ also come with a Windows Continuum-like feature called Samsung DeX that allows you to run supportive mobile apps on a full-scale monitor for enhanced productivity. And along with that, we also got the new Gear 360 camera.

However, if you've already made your mind up about buying this smartphone you haven't got long if you want to be the first to get your hands on it.
