The power bank is in addition to a range of other accessories leaked recently which includes a 2,600mAh backpack for on-the-go charging, and a multimedia dock for enhanced connectivity options. It is expected that Samsung will be bundling new AKG earphones with the upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The rumors about the bundled earphones came shortly after the company announced that it will be bringing AKG-tuned audio to its future Galaxy smartphones, SamMobile reports. This would essentially make the Galaxy S8 lineup the first set of smartphones by Samsung to come bundled with the AKG earphones. There have also been new cases for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, in addition to standard screen protector, Clear Cover, Clear View Cover, Keyboard Cover, and LED View Cover Case. There will also be a premium Protective Cover with Alcantara leather.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are expected to house battery capacities of 3,250mAh and 3,500mAh respectively. Given that there are more battery-related accessories, it seems that the built-in battery won t suffice when it comes to exploiting the smartphones to their maximum capabilities.
Samsung will be launching its new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones at an event in New York on March 29. The new flagship smartphones are expected to turn the attention of consumers and analysts away from the Galaxy Note 7 blunder last year. These will also be the company s first smartphones to feature Samsung s answer to Siri, called Bixby. With Qualcomm s most advanced Snapdragon 835 SoC at their hearts, these smartphones are likely to be priced at 799 Euros (approximately Rs 56,200) and 899 Euros (approximately Rs 63,200).
