Hyderabad: Samsung Electronics launched its flagship smartphones Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in India, opening up infinite possibilities for the future with a new level of design, functionality and user convenience. They come with Samsung Pay, the mobile payment service with defense-grade security, the best low-light camera and a personal assistant, Bixby.
Galaxy S8 builds on Samsung’s heritage of creating stunning designs and meaningful innovations that transform people’s lives. The Infinity Display and bezel-less design give you 18 per cent more screen and form a smooth, continuous surface with no buttons or harsh angles, making multi-tasking more convenient with the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+. The physical home key on the front has given way to a more intuitive soft key with a pressure sensor that is embedded under the display.
Despite the significantly larger screens on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the reengineered design with rounded edges and symmetrical sides make them compact and comfortable for one-handed operation. The Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back provides durability and a quality finish.
HC Hong, president and CEO, Samsung Southwest Asia, said, “With the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, Samsung is unboxing smartphones that transcend the boundaries of meaningful innovations. Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ extend our trust, our heritage of great innovation and stunning design and our ‘Make for India’ promise.”
Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be offered to consumers at a price of Rs 57,900 and Rs 64,900, respectively. The flagship smartphones will be available in India starting May 5, 2017 across select retail stores. They will be available online exclusively on Samsung Shop and Flipkart.
