In a matter of days, Samsung will unveil the highly anticipated Galaxy S8 phone. The new generation smartphone will come in two different versions, a 5.8-inch and a 6.2-inch model. Otherwise known as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, respectively. While Samsung has yet to get rid of the stigma caused by the Note 7, the company is doing its best to assure buyers about the upcoming phone. And in doing so, Samsung will also introduce a protection program for the Galaxy S8.
According to German site WinFuture, in addition to the official launch on the 29th of March, Samsung will also introduce the Samsung Guard S8. This is the company’s protection program for the Galaxy S8 that includes a number of features.
The first and most prominent of all features is that it offers a one-time screen replacement service for the phone. In addition to free screen replacement, the program also includes “remote support” as well as one extra year of warranty. Galaxy S8 users can use their new phones worry-free knowing that Samsung has got them covered.
It is interesting to note that this program is not exactly new. In fact, Samsung did the same thing last year with the Galaxy S7. However, at the time, the program is only for a certain number of regions covered by Samsung. Nevertheless, it seems like this time around, Samsung is planning to cover all regions with its protection program.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be released in a few days. The phones both boast a dual-curved edge OLED display that spans almost that entire front of the device. There are no hardware buttons in front of the phone, instead, the bottom part of the screen will serve as the “software buttons” for various applications.
At the moment, there are reports the the smaller Galaxy S8 phone will cost around $865. On the other hand, its bigger brother, the Galaxy S8+ will be priced at around $970. For more updates on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
