Defining technological barriers and turning the impossible into the new normal is what comes to mind when we think about Samsung’s new flagship models. Samsung Malaysia Electronics has successfully launched the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and they’re now available at all Samsung experienced and authorised dealers today!

We’ve told you about the 5 things we love about the latest Samsung smartphones in our previous article, which you can read here. Let’s do a little recap on what makes the Samsung S8 and S8+ our top picks:


Unconfined by bezels and buttons, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are designed to blend seamlessly into one’s life, enabling a more natural interaction between the user and the device. The large Infinity, dual-edge display that makes up more than 80 percent of the phone’s front screen gives you a minimalist yet virtually enhancing look and resulting in a noticeably more immersive viewing experience.


The advanced Galaxy foundation allows for multi-frame image processing, enabling the camera to take multiple shots in rapid succession, instead of just one. It then selects the clearest image and uses the others to reduce the blur. This enhanced image processing ensures that shots taken when the subject is moving, in low light or when zoomed in are clear and vibrant.

With an easy-to-use filter setting, users can enhance their photos by selecting from a variety of filters, including Auto Filter. Animated stickers and stamps can also now be applied to images when taking photos, right from the native camera app. The camera’s UX has also been optimised for one-handed operation.


Talk about strengthened security features – the Galaxy S8 and S8+ integrates the use of Samsung’s trusted Knox security platform combining new and enhanced biometric technologies. The highly secure iris scanner is fast, accurate and touch-free. Making user verification even easier is the other security feature – fingerprint scanning.


We’ve talked about Bixby in our last article – Samsung’s new intelligent interface: created to enhance the way you interact with your Galaxy S8 and S8+. What it does is it leverages on contextual awareness to learn your habits and provide related information. All of Bixby’s features can be accessed through its Home screen.


Gear VR
Aside from the typical and tangible phone experiences, Galaxy S8 and S8+ enhances your mobile connectivity and entertainment with the new Gear VR with controller. Enabling convenient one-handed control and navigation, the controller provides better motion interaction when accessing interactive VR content. With improved lenses, ergonomics, and expanded compatibility, the new and improved Gear VR headset challenges the very concept of virtual reality, redefining the limits of what it is capable of.

From Mobile to PC
Samsung DeX is a new service that lets users use their Galaxy S8 & S8+ as they would a desktop by providing a seamless, secure mobile-to-PC transition. With Samsung DeX, users can conveniently access apps, browse the web, send messages and more directly from their phone on a larger display without having to carry multiple devices or transfer data.

The Galaxy Foundation
In addition to the new design innovations, Samsung continues to deliver cutting-edge technology that included enhanced performance and robust entertainment that users love. Packing powerful performance and connectivity, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ feature the industry’s first 10nm processor, enabling heightened speed and efficiency. It is also gigabit LTE and gigabit Wi-Fi ready with support for up to 1 Gbps so users can quickly download files, regardless of the file size.

Enhanced by a rich colour palette, both devices are available in three colours in Malaysia – Midnight Black, the all-new Orchid Gray and Maple Gold. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ retail at RM3,299 and RM3,699 respectively so head down to your nearest Samsung dealership today.. and don’t forget to breathe!
