Samsung is set to launch the flagship Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ in India at an event in New Delhi today. The Galaxy S8 and the S8+, which go on sale globally from February 21, will be available in India in both online stores and offline shops. It is expected that from today the Galaxy S8+ and the Galaxy S8 will be available for pre-ordering in India, including at Flipkart.
Although for now the price of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ in India has not been revealed, there is every chance that the phones will cost more than Rs 50,000. This will mark a slight increase in the prices of the phones compared to the price at which the Galaxy S7 debuted in India last year. According to leaks at TechPP, a tech news site, the price is expected to be Rs 54,000 for the Galaxy S8 and Rs 62,000 for the Galaxy S8+.
It is expected that along with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+, Samsung will also launch a number of accessories for the phones, including the DeX, a dock that turns the phone into an almost full-fledged computer when connected to a monitor. The company will livestream the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus event on its official YouTube page.
Galaxy S8 Exynos for India
As it has become common now, The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ just like the earlier Galaxy S phones come in two variants. One is the global variant powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The other is the regional variant, sold primarily in India and Samsung’s home market South Korea. This variant is powered by Exynos 8895 processor.
In India the Exynos-powered variants of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ will hit the market. Not that it makes much of a difference. Both the Snapdragon 835 and the Exynos 8895 use the 10nm manufacturing technology and both offer comparable performance. In fact, theoretically, as the benchmarks show, the Exynos is slightly faster.
Another difference between the global and Indian variants of the top Galaxy phones is the Bixby. Although it comes loaded on these phones, it will only support the US English and Korean and hence will not be voice activated on the Indian Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+.
Other than the Exynos processor, the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ in India will come with top notch hardware. The phones pack in large screens in a relatively small frame because of the screens are curved. They also sport the same metal and glass design that made the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Plus arguably the best looking phones in the market.
The Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch curved screen. This screen uses AMOLED panels and has been dubbed one of the best by DisplayMate, an independent agency that measures the quality of display panels. Samsung also calls the display in the Galaxy S8 — s well as the one in the Galaxy S8+ — infinity display. The screen due to its curved sides looks as if it is melting into the metal frame and that gives the user an impression that it is an edge-less display. The phone, in its base variant, will have 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage and number of sensors including the heart rate sensor and the fingerprint sensor, which is placed on the back cover near the camera.
Talking of the camera, the Galaxy S8 comes with one 12-megapixel camera on the rear. This camera uses Sony-made IMX 333 image sensor and it has been paired with a sharp and bright F1.7 lens. On the front there is an 8-megapixel shooter.
The Galaxy S8 also has features like the waterproof design and unlike the iPhone 7, retains its 3.5mmm jack.
