While LG is looking to launch the G6 in India soon, Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy S8 and S8+ today.

Samsung has not yet revealed details about the price and availability of the two devices. 

The main attribute of the Galaxy duo is the almost bezel-less design. Samsung is also using a newer resolution of 2960 x 1440p with a 2:1 aspect ratio on both the phones. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ now feature a 5.7-inch a and a 6.2-inch display respectively. Samsung calls it infinity display and to accommodate it, Samsung has also moved the fingerprint scanner to the back.

The distinctive physical home button has now been moved below the display and offers a haptic feedback when pressed. The Indian variant of the phone will be powered by an Exynos 8895 SoC along with 4GB of RAM. This combo is supposed to produce a similar performance as the phone’s US variant, which possess a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform. On the storage front, all varaints will be equipped with 64GB internal storage and will offer support for micoSD cards. 

The phones are IP68 certified making them dust and water resistant, just like the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
