Samsung India Reveals Galaxy S8 & Galaxy S8 Plus Prices

Samsung S8 and S8 plus devices have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Octa-core (2.35 GHz Quad + 1.7 GHZ Quad) processor. Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will come with a brand new display. "The Samsung galaxy s8 and s8 plus is water and dust resistant (IP68 rating)".

"These devices will offer our consumers a gateway to a new mobile life where the power of innovation will carry them beyond barriers", Asim Warsi, Senior Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India, told reporters here. We have seen prototypes of a dual camera Galaxy S8 leak in recent days but Samsung did not see any value in including it at this stage thus it missed the final cut.

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ features a large 6.2-inch "infinity" display with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels.

This device features a stunning AMOLED Infinity display which covers nearly the entire front of the phone.

Philip Berne, head of the reviews program at Samsung U.S.A, has confirmed on Twitter that Samsung has indeed pulled the plug on the ability to remap the Bixby button on both Galaxy S8 and S8+.

We will soon update you as we get more info on the device.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 redemption tour keeps moving forward.

Both devices are flawless for multi-tasking. Despite having a handsome looking display, some global users are complaining about the freakish 18:5:9 aspect ratio. At present, the Bixby is available only in Korea. 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. Both the phones support wireless and quick charging technologies (via USB Type-C port). Galaxy S8+ has a 12MP Primary Dual Pixel Camera, 8MP Front Camera and is fueled by a 3,500 mAh Battery. These phones also come with Samsung's own take on virtual assistance, via Bixby and house a dedicated Bixby button on-board.
