Highlights
  • Samsung launches new 'Over the Horizon' Rendition
  • The tune has been arranged and recorded by Jacob Collier
  • The new tune will be pre-loaded in the Galaxy S8

Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are only two days away, and the company has decided to launch a revamped version of its default ringtone, Over the Horizon. Samsung has long preloaded this ringtone in all of its devices, and has been giving it tweaks every year to suit the music trend. This year, Samsung has collaborated with Jacob Collier to come up with an 'Over the Horizon' rendition that is rhythmic and melodious.

The South Korean consumer electronics giant has uploaded the new version on YouTube showing Collier playing as many as 16 instruments by "utilising a motion control camera to create a seamless 'one-man band' effect." The tune is edgy, upbeat, and touches upon various genres. Samsung has confirmed that the new tune will be preloaded in the Galaxy S8 set to launch on Wednesday. March 29.

The smartphone is all set launch at the company's Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event in New York, and it will kick off at 11am EDT (8:30pm IST). According to the rumour mill, the Samsung Galaxy S8 price will start at EUR 799 (roughly Rs. 56,000), Galaxy S8+ at EUR 899 (roughly Rs. 63,300), new Gear VR will cost EUR 129 (roughly Rs. 9,000), new Gear 360 will be priced at EUR 229 (roughly Rs. 16,100), and an accessory that could provide a Continuum-like called DeX could be priced at EUR 150 (roughly Rs. 10,500).

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are expected to sport 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Super AMOLED pressure sensitive displays respectively, with QHD+ display resolutions (2400x2960 pixels). The two smartphones will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 SoC, but some markets will get the home-grown Exynos 8895 chip as well. They will be paired with 4GB of RAM, though China and South Korea are said to get 6GB of RAM variants.

The devices will run on Android 7.0 Nougat, and support dual-SIM slots. In the camera department, there is expected to be a 12-megapixel dual pixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera as well. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones will be IP68-rated for dust and water resistance, support an iris scanner, may sport some sort of facial recognition, and 3000mAh and 3500mAh batteries respectively.
