Finally, the date is here, and it is official. Samsung sends out media invites for the launch of Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ in India on 19th April (today). It has been quite some time since Samsung has announced the launch of their latest flagship device.
From that time onwards, there was no shortage of leaks, hints, rumors, teasers and predictions for the specs and features of Samsung Galaxy S8. We already knew from the last month that the official release date for Samsung Galaxy S8 is 19th April. We don’t have the details of the official invitation yet, but the launch event will take place in New Delhi at 12 Noon IST.
A new feature in Samsung Galaxy S8
Apart from this, no other details are available right now about the price or availability. But we can assume the price will be around 50K INR considering the price of Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7+. Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will come with a brand new display. Samsung is calling it as the “Infinity Display.” It has got an aspect ratio of 18:5.9. You will get the two phones in two variants.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will come in 5.8 inches, and the S8+ will come in 6.2 inches. As we know, they have redesigned a lot on these two devices. They removed the front home button and instead of placing the fingerprint button in place of the home button they placed the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone below the camera.
No smart assistant
There were rumors which said, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will come with the Samsung Smart Assistant Bixby. But it will not come just yet. In the US, the release date of Samsung Galaxy S8 is pushed back because the smart assistant Bixby is not able to understand English. At present, the Bixby is available only in Korea.
