Samsung India Reveals Galaxy S8 & Galaxy S8 Plus Prices

20 April, 2017, 10:33 | Author: Oscar Goodwin

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus would also be available starting from May 5 with price tag of Rs 69,000, while dealers may sell it at Rs 63,900.

Comparing the newly launched Galaxy S8 with its predecessor will show you some major changes this time. And along with that, we also got the new Gear 360 camera. The company has done some huge changes in the design, display, UI, and added many new features.

While the 6.2-inch Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus should appease most phablet fans, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is likely to have an even larger screen, along with twice as many rear cameras.

This device features a stunning AMOLED Infinity display which covers nearly the entire front of the phone. It has got an aspect ratio of 18:5.9.

The fingerprint scanner has been placed at the back, near the camera, which can be slightly uncomfortable to reach to.

Coming to the hardware, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus comes loaded with Exynos 8895 octa-core processor which is built on the 10nm process. It has a 4GB RAM and a 64GB internal storage which can be expandable upto 256 GB.

While the Galaxy S8 is powered by a 3000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S8 Plus comes with a larger 3500 mAh battery. Both the handsets run the latest version of Android at launch and come with Samsung's own Bixby virtual assistant.

Obviously, the company wouldn't want to cannibalize the publicity garnered by the flagship Galaxy S8 so soon. 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.

#GalaxyS8 and #GalaxyS8Plus come with Bixby, an intelligent interface that gives users a new way to interact with your phone.

Both the devices are IP68 rated, making them resistant to water and dust. The dual camera configuration in Samsung Galaxy Note 8 suggests a device looking like an iPhone 7 Plus, but Kuo stated that it will be much better than Apple's smartphone. Both have fast-charging capability through the USB C port.
