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.

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.
