Samsung to launch S8 and S8+ in India on April 19

Samsung is the only major brand which did not employ dual camera technology in its smartphones, which is underwhelming by the company' standards.

Market sources in India reveal that the Galaxy S8 may be available for Indian consumers between Rs 50,000 and Rs 60,000, but Samsung India has not officially commented on local prices.

Two versions of the Galaxy S8, code-named Dream internally, were launched at a media event in NY on March 29, with 6.2-inch (15.75 cm) and 5.8-inch curved screens - the largest to date for Samsung's premium smartphones. The interesting part here is the absence of fingerprint sensor. Which means Samsung might have tried the fingerprint sensor in the display.

After Samsung previously made it clear that the reason a rear dual-camera setup route was not pursued for its Galaxy S8, a photo of an alleged prototype has made rounds online today, showing how this year's flagship would've looked had Samsung chose to keep it in.

In the images, we can see that the Galaxy Note8 has a fairly large screen, which we imagine would be similar to the Galaxy S8 Plus' huge 6.2-inch screen, which could raise its resolution up to 4K.


It should be noted that, like the S8, its screen would have an aspect ratio of 18: 9, and would also have an iris reader located next to the front camera.

Samsung said in a statement that the key features on its Galaxy S8, such as Reminder, Home and Vision can already be accessed by tech fans together with the improved reality on the handset's camera app.

It is Available to Pre-orders in United States and UK.
