Samsung Gulf Electronics has launched two of its latest smartphones - Galaxy S8 and S8+ - in Bahrain. Both these models boast stunning infinity display, connected ecosystem of services and an intelligent interface.
The 'Smartphones Without Limits' were launched at an exclusive event held at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain.
The latest smartphones push the boundaries of traditional smartphones with its seamless screen hardware design and a variety of new service offerings, said a top official.
The Galaxy S8 builds on Samsung’s heritage of creating stunning designs and functional devices. Available in 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+, the Infinity Display and bezel-less design form a smooth, continuous surface with no buttons or harsh angles.
Speaking at the launch, Tarek Sabbagh, the head of IT & Mobile (IM) division at Samsung Gulf Electronics, said: "The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ usher in a new era of smartphone design and fantastic services, opening the door for new ways to experience the world."
“The Galaxy S8 and S8+ represents, not just the launch of a brand new device in the region, but a whole new way to create experiences. Knowing that exploring the world and new cultures is something that people across the region love, we have tied up with Etihad airways and Hotels.com to reward our loyal customers,” he stated.
With the launch of multiple services and apps, as well as a stunning Infinity Display for immersive viewing experiences, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ bring a new level of functionality and convenience, opening up a galaxy of possibilities, he noted.
As a special launch offer, Samsung is offering the buyers of Galaxy S8 and S8+ a 30 per cent off in Economy and Business Class with Etihad Airways.
"Furthermore, customers will be able to save up to 40 per cent on hotel bookings worldwide and enjoy an extra 12 per cent off coupon in partnership with hotels.com. This offer is exclusively available to customers in the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait," remarked Sabbagh.
