The premium variant of the Galaxy S8+ would be available only in the Midnight Black colour option and will be up for sale from June 9. Samsung will also bundle a wireless charger worth Rs. 4,499 with the smartphone. However, it might be an introductory offer and will end at any time, which isn’t mentioned by Samsung.

To recall, Samsung also offered a free wireless charger for customers who prebooked the smartphone in India. Besides the bump in storage and RAM, the rest of the specifications are similar to the earlier launched 64GB and 4GB RAM model.

The highlight of the Galaxy S8 series is not the hardware, but its QHD+ Infinity display. The S8+ sports a 6.2-inch QHD+ display with an unusual resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. It is powered by the Exynos 8895 processor, paired with Mali G71 MP20 GPU. The device comes with 64GB/128GB storage, but it also has a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion.
