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.
Talking about the devices themselves, we knew everything about them since they were already launched in the U.S as mentioned earlier.
Gadgets 360 has exclusively learned that Samsung Galaxy S8 price in India will be Rs. 62,600; this is the MRP (Maximum Retail Price), while the market operating price (MOP) is Rs. 57,900. Actual sales of both the phones will start from May 5. Every year, Samsung loads the Indian variant of its flagship smartphone with its homegrown Exynos chipset, and this year too, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus comes loaded with Exynos 8895 octa-core processor which is built on the 10nm process. The smartphones also come with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage, and support 256GB expandable storage through a microSD card. The USP of both the devices, however, is the display on the front.
That's not all since Kuo made a decision to reveal even more about the upcoming Note 8 model, and said that it will come with a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED. These are bezel-less displays sporting a resolution of 2961x1440 pixels, along with the 18:9 aspect ratio.More news: OU Awarded Multiple NCAA Postseason Events
On the camera side of things, the things are unchanged from the past year. The front camera is 8MP with Smart auto-focus and f/1.7 aperture. 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.
While the Galaxy S8 is powered by a 3000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S8 Plus comes with a larger 3500 mAh battery. The phones also have the option of Iris scanner and face recognition for unlocking them. 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.
You can buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 from £689/$720 in the United Kingdom and US. Be sure to let us know and also stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more info on this.
