Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+


Samsung Electronics launched its flagship smartphones Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in India. With its new level of design, functionality and user convenience Samsung redefine the future of style and consumer experience with a stunning bezel-less dual-edge Infinity Display that provides a truly cinematic viewing experience.
The Infinity Display and bezel-less design give you 18% more screen and form a smooth, continuous surface with no buttons or harsh angles, making multi-tasking more convenient with the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+. The physical home key on the front has given way to a more intuitive soft key with a pressure sensor that is embedded under the display.
Despite the significantly larger screens on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the reengineered design with rounded edges and symmetrical sides make them compact and comfortable for one-handed operation. The Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back provides durability and a high-quality finish.
Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ come with a defense-grade security platform Samsung Knox. In addition, the smartphones introduce an Iris scanner, which is one of the most secure biometric identification systems on a phone. Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ also offer a choice of biometric technologies including a fingerprint scanner and facial recognition. This is in addition to the traditional options of pin and pattern so that consumers can select a secure authentication method that works best for them.
