“A closer look at the Samsung Galaxy S8 in the Burgundy Red colourway”
Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S9 (review) and the Galaxy S9 Plus (review) are arguably among the most popular smartphones in the premium segment right now. That said, last year’s Samsung Galaxy S8 (review) is still a solid flagship and the handset can easily give some newer devices a run for their money. Perhaps that’s why, the South Korean company announced the Galaxy S8 in a brand new Burgundy Red colourway at an enticing price point of Rs 49,990.
Coupled with an attractive cash back offer of Rs 10,000, the price of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Burgundy Red makes a strong case against the recently launched OnePlus 6 (review). And the colour makes the attractive smartphone even more stunning, as the pics embedded below would prove.
To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S8 ships with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio bearing a resolution of 1,440 x 2,960 pixels. The handset comes with IP68 certification and is backed by an Exynos 8895 octa-core processor which works alongside 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. For optics, the smartphone comes with a 12MP f/1.7 primary sensor and an 8MP secondary shooter. Lastly, the Galaxy S8 sips juice from a 3,000mAh battery and the device boots Android Oreo with a skin of Samsung’s Experience UX v9.0 on top.
