Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8+ Philippine Launch

The Samsung Infinity Hub in Taguig City played host venue to the much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8+ launch in the Philippines a few nights ago.

With the theme ‘Infinitely White‘, guests came clad in gorgeous white garbs. Surrounded by mirrors, bright lights, and swatches of black and white, the venue exuded limitlessness. Up front, the stunningly eye-catching facade of mirrors became the subject of countless photos of guests in the Infinity Room which appeared like a vast galaxy of stars.

Hosted by Solenn Heussaff, the milestone event was marked by glitz, glamour, and grandeur where Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation celebrated the official local launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ in grand fashion.

Focus: Infinity Display

The Infinity Display fuses revolutionary aesthetic and advanced technology to give you functional design at its fullest. It boasts of an incredible end-to-end screen that spills over the phone’s sides, forming a completely smooth, continuous surface with no bumps or angles – only pristine uninterrupted glass flowing seamlessly into the aluminum shell.

Moreover, for those who’ve tried it for the first time, the iris scanner and facial recognition both don’t fail to impress. While new features claim the spotlight, Samsung’s well-loved camera still made itself prominent as guests made use of the displayed phones to capture the memorable moments of the night.
