Regarding the colors, the Galaxy S8 and the Plus option is expected to ship in Black Sky, Orchid Grey, and Arctic Silver color options. The upcoming Samsung DeX station, priced at EUR 150 will provide PC-centric capabilities to the flagship smartphones. In short, the dock station will be identical to Microsoft Continuum, which was made available with Lumia 950 handsets.
While the GearVR headset will be available at EUR 129, the Gear360 premium headset can be purchased starting at EUR 229. It remains to be seen as to whether Samsung will provide GearVR bundled with the Galaxy S8 smartphone for customers who pre-order the device.
Regarding the specifications, you can expect a 5.7-inch for the Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch display for the Galaxy S8+ model. You can look forward Exynos processor for handsets shipped to Asian countries. The Plus model will provide support for Iris scanner, which enables you to unlock the phone using your eyes. The highlight of the Galaxy S8 series will be the addition of an AI-based digital assistant named Bixby.
Apparently, Samsung has restarted the repair services for out of warranty products in the US. Previously, Samsung declined to provide support for smartphones which are out of warranty even if a customer agrees to pay services charges. Recently, the Galaxy S8 and the big brother was cleared by the US FCC.
