Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8+ Up for Pre-Registrations in India
Highlights
  • The Samsung India website is now taking pre-registrations
  • This indicates the launch of the devices in India soon
  • Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ will sport Exynos 8895 SoC in the country

A week after launching them in New York, Samsung has decided to put up the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ for pre-registrations in India. The exact pricing and availability details are not unveiled yet, but now that the smartphones are up for pre-registrations, it is only a matter of time before the devices are launched in the country soon.

The pre-registrations page gathers all your contact information and email ID to notify you when the smartphones will be made available. It also asks you which feature on the Galaxy S8 has you most excited. Options like Infinity Display, iris scanner, and Samsung Bixby are available to choose from. This exercise is presumably done to gauge the interest the phones have garnered in the market before launch. For now, there is speculation that the company will launch the phones sometime in May, but now that the pre-registrations are underway, it could also be much sooner.

In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S8 features a 5.8-inch QHD+ (1440x2960 pixels) Super AMOLED display while the Galaxy S8+ sports a 6.2-inch QHD+ (1440x2960 pixels) Super AMOLED display. Both the smartphones sport 12-megapixel 'Dual Pixel' rear camera with optical image stabilisation and an f/1.7 aperture, while there is an 8-megapixel front camera with autofocus on board as well, featuring an f/1.7 aperture.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ pack 4GB of RAM and come with 64GB inbuilt storage while also supporting expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB). Both the smartphones will support wireless charging as well as fast charging. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ pack 3000mAh and 3500mAh batteries respectively.
