Samsung To Launch Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus In India Today

The reception to both the phones has been extremely favourable from both experts and the general public alike with most people excited about the new design - especially the huge end to end display.

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. 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. It has got an aspect ratio of 18:5.9.

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+. The only thing which we didn't know what the price of both the devices. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are built with more spacious internal storage that starts at 64GB with an expandable memory that can handle up to 256GB via microSD card.

The hardware is one place where the United States variant of the S8 differs from the S8 launched in India.

The Galaxy S8 comes with an intuitive soft key, in place of the home key, that has a pressure sensor embedded under the display. At the end, nothing happened with the new Galaxy S8's battery though they even tried a heavy cutter tool to cut the phone from the middle.

For a while, it looked like Samsung would leave that door open for interested customers, but now it's changing the software to make sure that the button only does what the firm wants it to do - open Bixby and nothing else. Both the devices are IP certified for dust and water resistance and they come with Iris scanner on the front along with face recognition as well. The devices also support Samsung's Adaptive Fast Charging technology, along with support for wireless charging.

Samsung Galaxy S8 features a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED panel, whereas the S8 Plus features a slightly larger 6.2-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED panel.
