Galaxy S8 To Ship With A Free Wireless Speaker In UK

British smartphone retailer Carphone Warehouse will be giving away a free Samsung-made wireless speaker to everyone who purchases either the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus, according to a leaked image of the company's promotional flier that you can see above. The flier doesn't name any particular device but it does note the speaker in question is valued at £99.99, i.e. approximately $124.99. It also features two renders of the upcoming flagship that has already been the subject of numerous leaks, reports, and rumors in recent months. These particular renders have already emerged online as part of a larger set of leaks and don't reveal anything that hasn't already been known about the device. While it's unclear whether the images show the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus, both devices will seemingly feature a rather tall and slim case with an impressive screen-to-body ratio, in addition to lacking a physical Home button and missing Samsung's signature front branding.

As Samsung removed the Home from its upcoming pair of flagships, the company moved the fingerprint scanner of the device to its back, the images suggest. Additionally, both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus will reportedly sport an improved version of the iris scanner that originally debuted on the discontinued Galaxy Note 7 last year. Regarding the leak seen above, the promotional flier doesn't specify whether the free Samsung wireless speaker will only be offered to people who-preorder the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus, or whether the offer will be valid as long as supplies last. Seeing how Samsung's upcoming devices are predicted to be huge commercial hits, there might not be any difference between the two scenarios.

Regardless, more information on the matter is bound to be available shortly seeing how the South Korean phone maker is scheduled to officially unveil the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus tomorrow, March 29. The company will detail its handsets at a special event in New York City that will reportedly be hosted by Samsung's mobile chief DJ Koh, and both devices should be available for pre-orders shortly after. While their launch dates are yet to be announced, most industry sources agree that the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus will hit the market in the second half of April.
