Consumers in the United States who pre-ordered either the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus have started receiving a free Amplifier Speaker Dock, Phone Arena reports, citing one of its readers who shared some pictures of their gift that can be seen below. The box housing the gift contains a message from Samsung expressing gratitude to consumers who pre-ordered either one of the company's upcoming flagships, reminding them they should register their device when they receive it in order to gain access to some unspecified benefits and useful information. The gift itself is a cone-shaped dock designed to house the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus and direct the sound from the phone's speaker, thus amplifying it. The accessory was made in a way that allows you to use it while simultaneously charging your device via a USB Type-C port.
The free Amplifier Speaker Dock is reportedly being sent to every individual in the country who pre-ordered either device directly through Samsung's website, meaning consumers who placed their advanced orders on the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus through retailers and wireless carriers shouldn't expect the same treatment. Regardless, many mobile service providers and retailers in the country are running their own promotions for incentivizing people to pre-order either device, while all advanced orders can also be registered on Samsung's official website which grants you significant discounts on 256GB microSD cards and AKG earphones, in addition to guaranteeing you a free Gear VR headset.
Following months of rumors and anticipation, Samsung finally unveiled its latest flagship duo in late March, confirming that the Galaxy S8 features a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display, while the Galaxy S8 Plus sports a 6.2-inch one, both of which support QHD+ (2960 x 1440) resolution. The U.S. variants of the devices are powered by the Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm's first 10nm system-on-chip (SoC), in addition to boasting 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space. Other key features of the handsets include Bluetooth 5.0 support, IP68 certification, and a unique, almost bezel-less design. The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus will officially be released in most markets on April 21.
