Along with the flagship Samsung also launched Galaxy Gear 360 camera, Samsung DeX & Gear VR with motion controller. As of now there is no details of the pricing and availability for the above products.
As expected Samsung duo launched similar pricing as per leaks. We think Rs.49,990/- was a better price for Samsung Galaxy S8 & for S8+ Rs.56,900/-. The pricing is slightly higher than previous year Samsung galaxy S7 & S7 Edge. We have to wait and see if Indian consumer will buy the product at that price or will Samsung reduce the price in the future.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ comes with 5.8 inch and 6.2 inch QHD+ display with resolution of 1440*2960 pixel with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on both the sides.
