Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders are now open in Kenya. Samsung Electronics East Africa has announced the opening a week after officially launching in Kenya.
Pre-orders in Kenya for the device will open on April 10. Samsung says the first 2,000 customers who make the Galaxy S8 pre-orders will get the Level Box Slim, and a portable Bluetooth speaker that was launched at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier in the year.
The portable speaker is lightweight at just 236 grams and has a powerful 8-watt audio. With a microphone, noise reduction and echo cancellation features, the speaker can be used to take calls. The portable speaker, on the other hand, features an *IPx7 water resistance rating and can additionally be used as a power bank when you plug in your device via USB cable.
While announcing the opening of the Galaxy S8 pre-orders, Jung Hyun Park, the Vice President, and Managing Director Samsung Electronics East Africa said the Galaxy S8 will be available starting on May 5th in Kenya.
“We continue to evolve our smartphone portfolio to provide our customers with devices that enhance their lives and open the possibilities to new experiences. The Galaxy S8 is our testament to regaining your trust by redefining what’s possible in safety and marks a new milestone in Samsung’s smartphone legacy,” Mr. Park added.
The Galaxy S8 will be offered in a rich color palette including Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, and Maple Gold.
Globally, the phone will go on sale on April 21 in select markets.
