After reducing the price of the 128GB storage variant of the Galaxy S8+ two times, Samsung has now decided to slash the prices of the 64GB storage variant of its flagship device in India.
Samsung today reduced the price of the Galaxy S8+ 32GB storage variant by Rs. 6,000 in India. This brings down the price to Rs. 58,900. Earlier, the Korean smartphone maker had reduced the prices of the 128GB storage variant to Rs. 65,900, which was just Rs. 1,000 more than the 64GB variant.
Samsung Galaxy S8+ Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy S8+ comes with a 6.2 inch Quad HD+ Infinity Super AMOLED display, with a new pressure sensitivity feature. Quad HD+ resolution is 2960 x 1440 pixels, giving you a pixel density of ~531 PPI.
The phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Samsung has also worked to refine the TouchWiz custom UI to a great extent. The device comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front as well as the back.
The Indian variant of the Galaxy S8+ is powered by Samsung Exynos 8895 chipset with an octa-core processor and Mali-G71 MP20 GPU. The device comes in two variants. The first variant comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage and the second variant comes with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The storage on the device can be further expanded up to 128 GB via microSD card.
Coming to the camera department, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ comes with a 12MP Dual Pixel primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, 1/2.55″ sensor size, Optical Image Stabilization and LED flash. On the front, the phone comes with an 8MP camera with an f/1.7 aperture and Smart Autofocus, helping you to click better selfies.
Samsung has opted for on-screen navigation buttons. In addition to that, the S8 and S8+ come with an “invisible” Home button – essentially, it is placed below the display. The phone will utilise the pressure sensitive display to register input on the Home button.
Other notable features include Samsung DeX, a feature that is similar to Microsoft Continuum. This feature allows Galaxy S8 and S8+ users to dock their phones into a monitor, keyboard or mouse, allowing them to be used like a computer.
