Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ India Launch Announced

The Samsung Galaxy S series smartphones have been hailed for their performance over the years.

Analysts have predicted the Galaxy S8 could set a new sales record for the Korean tech firm, with users seemingly unfazed by the battery problems that affected the Galaxy Note 7 handset past year.

Unlike past Galaxy S sets which took the pricing to about $100 expensive than last year, this year, with the Galaxy S8, Samsung hasn't pushed the price by that much when compared to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge respectively. The active line has generally offered almost the same specifications as the Galaxy handset released for that year but added a rugged exterior shell, water and dust resistance, and other improvements. T-Mobile started taking pre-orders for the new flagship soon after that and reiterated that the Galaxy S8 would be out on the aforementioned date. Not many details are available at this point, but Samsung is reportedly referring to this smartphone internally as the "Cruiser".

Samsung has also been praised for its Infinity Display on the Galaxy S8, and the screen itself melts towards the side and gives a great first impression of a wraparound panel. For instance, last year's Galaxy S7 Active came with a shatter-resistant screen along with IP68 water resistance.

Samsung will unveil Galaxy S8 and S8+ price in India on April 19. Two models of the Galaxy S8 have been launched, with 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved screens. More ruggedness also means extra bulk, however, so don't expect the Galaxy S8 Active to look as sleek as the Galaxy S8.

It has been suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will be released sometime in June, the same schedule all previous Active models have launched.
