Samsung has launched its new flagship devices, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ in India. The two are priced at Rs. 57,900 and Rs. 64,900 respectively. Both phones also come with the company’s own AI assistant called Bixby, which can be activated via a dedicated button located below the volume rocker.
Both devices offer pretty much the same set of specifications except for the screen size and battery. The Samsung Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch display and a 3000mAh battery, while the Galaxy S8+ sports a 6.2-inch display and a 3500mAh battery. Both devices come with the company’s Infinity display, which offers a resolution of 2960x1440 pixels and a ratio of 18:9. The two smartphones are also the first smartphones in the Galaxy series to ditch the physical home button, which is now located behind the display. The fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back of the back of the phone, next to the camera module. Further, the two devices come with iris and facial recognition.
The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ are powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 SoC, which is based on the 10nm FinFET manufacturing process. Both offer 4GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage. At the back is a 12MP camera with Dual Pixel technology, Optical Image Stabilisation, f/1.7 aperture lens, while at the front is a 8MP camera with an f/1.7 lens. Besides this, there is also a USB Type-C port, 3.5mm audio jack, and Bluetooth 5.0.
