Samsung Electronics, the world’s second largest smartphone maker, announced late last month what it called a technology that pushes the boundaries of traditional smartphones with its seamless hardware design.
Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone offers a new way for users to interact with their phones and brings a new level of functionality and convenience, opening up a galaxy of possibilities.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 ushers in a new era of smartphone design and fantastic new services, opening up new ways to experience the world, said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electrics.
The Galaxy S8 is our testament to regaining your trust by redefining what’s possible in safety and marks a new milestone in Samsung’s smartphone legacy, said Mr Koh.
Coming out in 5.8 inch and 6.2 inch models, the infinity display and bezel-less design form a smooth, continuous surface with no buttons or harsh angles.
The result is a truly immersive viewing experience without distractions and makes multi-tasking more convenient.
The S8 is equipped with an advanced 8mp F1.7 smart autofocus front camera and 12 Mp F1.7 dual pixel rear camera for the best low-light, zoom and anti-blur photos with enhanced image processing.
Packing powerful performance and connectivity, the Galaxy S8 features the industry’s first 10nm chip, enabling heightened speed and efficiency.
It is also gigabit LTE and gigabit WiFi ready, with support for up to 1GBps so users can quickly download files, regardless of the file size.
As the world’s first mobile device certified by the UHD Alliance as MOBILE HDR PREMIUMTM, Galaxy S8 and S8+ let users see the same vibrant colours and contrasts that the filmmakers intended while watching their favorite shows.
Both Galaxy S8 and S8+ also offer next-level gaming experiences with vivid and superior graphic technology, as well as Game Pack, featuring top game titles, including select titles supported by the Vulkan API.
Both models are built on Samsung Knox, a defense-grade security platform and will offer a wide selection of biometric technologies including a fingerprint scanner, iris scanner and facial recognition so users can select a secure biometric authentication method that works best for them.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ also come with the foundational Galaxy features including:
IP68 water and dust resistance
MicroSD support up to 256GB
Fast and wireless charging capabilities
Though made available in Thailand and other parts of the world last week, Galaxy S8 and its twin S8+ are expected to be available in Laos early next month.
