Samsung has officially announced the launch date of its recently released flagship smartphones Galaxy S8 and S8+ in India. The devices will be released this month itself in the country, to be precise on April 19th.
The announcement was made by Samsung India via its Twitter handle. It uploaded a teaser video showing the transformation of Samsung phones from tall bezels to the bezel less Infinity Display. The video ends with the caption Galaxy S8 / S8+ Coming Soon.
After launching the phones on March 29th, Samsung started taking pre-orders in US, Korea, China and Malaysia. While the global release is slated for April 21st, it seems the S8 and S8+ will make their way into India even before that.
Meanwhile, these flagship devices are being received pretty well by customers. The first batch of the Galaxy S8+ 6GB got sold out in Korea within 5 days of its availability. Again, Galaxy S8 and S8+ shattered all the previous pre-order records with more than 550,000 registrations in just 2 days in its home country.
Samsung reported that it has received 728,000 pre-order registrations for both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ combinedly as of April 12th. The pre-orders stop on April 17th and at the present rate, it is touted to touch the 1 million mark by then.
