Samsung Intros Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus Pre-Order Bonuses

Samsung announced pre-order bonuses for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus, its latest pair of high-end Android smartphones that the company officially unveiled yesterday. As of today, all consumers who pre-order either variant of the flagship will receive the new Gear VR headset and its Controller for free, in addition to getting access to some premium Oculus content, the company said. Additionally, Samsung is also offering a special pre-order bundle priced at $99 that includes a 256GB microSD memory card, a pair of high-end AKG earphones, and the Gear VR headset with Controller. The AKG headphones included in the bundle are usually priced at $150, the Samsung 256GB microSD card retails for $250, while the new Gear VR head-mounted display is worth $130, meaning the pre-order bundle is worth $530. In order to take advantage of the deal, you'll have to follow the source link below and register for the offer by April 20 after you've already pre-ordered the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus and sent a proof or purchase to Samsung.

The Seoul-based tech giant said that the aforementioned Oculus content for the Gear VR headset might vary by territory, but the basic bundle should include End Space, Star Chart, Esper 2, Evil Robot Traffic Jam, and Ocean Rift. All of those VR experiences have been well-received by both consumers and critics, so the bundle itself seems like a pretty good opportunity to jump into virtual reality without spending too much. Samsung was rather light on VR-related details at yesterday's Unpacked event and only said that the Infinity display of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus allows for even more immersive virtual experiences, but it seems that the company is still adamant to promote its VR portfolio of products and services.

Regarding the devices themselves, the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus are currently scheduled to be released worldwide on April 21. Both smartphones are expected to be huge commercial hits that will help Samsung bounce back from last year's Galaxy Note 7 fiasco and pave the way for the Galaxy Note 8 that the company previously said will be released in the second half of the year.
