Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ smartphones launches in Nigeria



SAMSUNG Electronics has launched
its newest flagship smartphones, Galaxy
S8 and S8+ into the Nigerian market,
following the unveiling the company’s
unpacked event in New York.
Speaking at the Nigerian launch event
which took place in Lagos. Managing
Director, Samsung Electronics West
Africa, Mr. Paul Lee said, “Samsung
consistently pushes the boundaries of
possibilities with a focus of unlocking
value by delivering products that are,
not only stunning to look at but, also
comfortable to hold.”
“The launch of these smartphones
marks the beginning of a new era of
smartphone devices without edges
or limits. This is a new way for our
consumers to experience the world,
capture every moment and share every
memory through a device that is sleek
and small enough to fit into their hands,
but big enough to contain everything
needed for work and play,” Mr. Lee
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ feature polished
metal chassis covered by curved Gorilla
Glass 5 on the front and back. The
devices are available in Midnight Black,
Orchid Gray and Maple Gold colours
with internal memory of 64GB and up to
256GB microSD support.
Boasting some of the largest wraparound
screens ever made, the longawaited
Galaxy S8 and S8+ come
with 5.8-inch (14.73 cm) and 6.2-inch
(15.75 cm) curved screens, respectively.
Both devices have 1,440X2,960 screen
resolution and are equipped 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries, respectfully.
The display quality is Super AMOLED,
featuring a new design named “infinity
display”, which wraps around the
devices in a smooth, perfectly curved
pristine end-to-end screen, giving it a
perfect symmetry while eliminating the
bezels. Thanks to the new display, the
physical home button usually located in
the front of the phone has been replaced
with a digital home button, built in
the glass. Both devices feature a rear
mounted fingerprint reader, quite close to
the camera lens.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ come with
exciting new features for remarkable
user experience. The extended screen is
perfect for multitasking. Users can open
their favorite IM app whilst watching
a video simultaneously, by using Multi
Window; this is same for typing text with
the full keyboard without having to hide
the video.
The smartphones offer five types of
security technologies: iris recognition,
face recognition, pattern, password,
and PIN; users can easily choose their
preferred method. Users can use the iris
scanner to unlock their devices without
having to swipe the phone. With Face
Recognition, users can instantly unlock
their devices with just a look even without
the PIN or pattern; simply look into the
camera on the lock screen and the device
is unlocked.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ 12 MP rear
camera utilizes Dual Pixel technology for
incredibly fast autofocus, allowing users
capture important moments. Thanks to
the F1.7 lens, pictures appear bright
and crisp even if taken in low-light
environments. Samsung did revamp
the front-facing camera to an 8MP with
auto focus. This will definitely excite
‘selfie queens and kings’ as pictures
come out sharp and vibrant. Similar to
the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the Galaxy
S8 and S8+ are IP68-certified for dust
and water. This feature protects the
device from immersion in up to 1.5m
of fresh water for 30 minutes, allowing
users capture memories at pool parties
or on the beach with loved ones.
Director and Business Leader,
Information Technology and Mobile,
Mr. Emmanouil Revmatas, said that
Samsung is delighted about these
smartphones as they display the
company’s heritage of great innovation
and stunning design, and will continue
to define barriers and ensure that
consumers get the best out of their
“The revolutionary design of the
Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones
begins from inside out. These devices
come with several amazing features,
including the infinity display which
gives an incredible full screen
experience and fits comfortably in the
hands. The bezels have been removed
to provide more space for things that
matter and the bigger immersive screen
that allow users multi-task seamlessly;
chat while watching a video. These
innovations will change the way users
see their smartphones and everything
in it,” Revmatas concluded.
