Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, J7 coming with tailor-made features for business class, celebs

Latest entrant in the Samsung Galaxy J family, the J7 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. While that’s not much storage, the phone does have a microSD card slot so you can add extra storage if you so choose.

This is as Samsung Electronics West Africa has announced that the eighth generation of its flagship Galaxy S Series, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, will be available for pre-registration in Nigeria from April 19, 2017.

Successors to the S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung S8 and S8+ come with the most advanced Samsung technology, “pushing the boundaries of traditional smartphones with seamless hardware design and a variety of new service offerings.”

The Managing Director, Samsung Electronics West Africa, Paul Lee, said that the new Galaxy S8 and S8+ “are packed with the most refined experience to-date by combining the latest technology to deliver excellent quality and user experience.”

He said, “The new Samsung S8 and S8+ are packed with a plethora of features that have set a new standard for the Samsung Galaxy series. The infinity display and bezel-less design form a smooth, continuous surface with no buttons or harsh angles. The result is a truly immersive viewing experience without distractions and makes multi-tasking more convenient.”While the Galaxy J7 was rumored to feature a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, the device instead ended up with an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. The display of the phone sits at 5.5-inches and has a resolution of 1,280 x 720 — which isn’t bad for a phone in this price range.

The design of the new phone is actually pretty nice. Sure, it’s no Galaxy S series, but it’s basic and sleek with a metal body. On the back, you’ll find a colored band that stretches across the camera module. As expected, the design is much cleaner than the 2016 version, meaning you won’t have to settle for a cheap-looking phone just because you’re getting a midrange device.
