Samsung Electronics Officially Releases the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ to Global Markets
Samsung Electronics officially announced today the commercial launch of its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ to select markets around the world. The flagship smartphones are initially available in four markets – U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Korea – and will continue rolling out to additional markets in the weeks ahead.
With the bezel-less Infinity Display, the Galaxy S8 builds upon its history of creating stunning designs to offer an immersive viewing experience. The smooth lines and ergonomic curvature of the phone ensure that the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ both look great and fit comfortably into your hand. The upgraded specs of the Galaxy S8 offer both increased performance and efficiency thanks to the industry’s first 10nm processor, Gigabit LTE and Gigabit Wi-Fi compatibility and the first officially designated Mobile HDR PremiumTM screen.
The Galaxy S8 features an upgraded 8MP F1.7 front camera, complete with smart autofocus. The 12MP F1.7 Dual Pixel rear camera ships with enhanced multi-frame image processing, which creates sharper photos, even in low-light environments. Enhanced biometric security capabilities come standard on the Galaxy S8 with its advanced iris scanner and facial recognition technology.
The launch of the Galaxy S8 is complimented by an expanded ecosystem that features impressive new services and devices, including: Bixby, the Galaxy S8’s intelligent new interface; Samsung DeX, which provides a desktop-like experience for the Galaxy S8; intuitive IoT device management via Samsung Connect; expanded healthcare solutions through Samsung Health; and expanded mobile payment capabilities with Samsung Pay.
