Muscat: S8 and S8 plus, Samsung’s latest smartphones, will soon be available in the Omani market, following a grand launch on Wednesday.
The ‘Smartphones Without Limits’ were launched at an event at The Al Bustan Palace-a Ritz Carlton Hotel.
The latest smartphones push the boundaries of traditional smartphones, with their 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 the 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.

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.
