New Delhi, April 19: Set to give Apple iPhones a tough competition, Samsung on Wednesday ended the Indian consumers’ wait and brought its flagship devices Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ to the country. Packed with a voice assistant called Bixby, the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ were listed on a Flipkart banner ad for pre-orders, starting from 3 p.m. on Wednesday to avail the special pre-book offer of a free convertible wireless charger. At Rs 57,900 and Rs 64,900, respectively, the S8 and S8+ devices will be available on Flipkart and Samsung’s online store from May 5.

“With the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, Samsung is unboxing smartphones that transcend the boundaries of meaningful innovations. Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ extend our trust, our heritage of great innovation and stunning design and our ‘Make for India’ promise,” said H.C. Hong, President and CEO, Samsung Southwest Asia. Despite the significantly larger screens on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the re-engineered 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. The “Infinity Display” and bezel-less design gives a user 18 per cent more screen with no buttons. 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. The devices come with a defence-grade security platform Samsung Knox. For security, the company introduced an iris scanner, which is one of the most secure biometric identification systems on a phone. (IANS)
