Samsung glamorously launches Galaxy S8 and S8+ in Pakistan

Samsung Galaxy S8

Who says that you only need a good phone to stand out amongst the competition in Pakistan? Samsung, the leading South Korean smartphone brand just showed the strength of their brand at the mega launch at one of the hottest venues in town, Hazoori Bagh.

Samsung launched its flagship phones Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the most anticipated Unpacked event in New York. The pre-orders of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ went live last month where the two phones are priced at PKR 87,000 and PKR 97,000 respectively in Pakistan.

Today, the company flaunted its superiority by organizing their launch event in a place that was previously open for state dinners. For instance, when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Pakistan, the Prime Minister of Pakistan hosted an event at the Hazoori Bagh.

In 2017, we have witnessed the launches of various premium mobile phones, from Oppo to Huawei, no one was successful in creating a wow factor. Oppo recently launched F3 Plus and then organized an event to introduce its younger sibling F3 but we couldn’t see the aura of exclusivity. Also, Huawei which is known for its extravagant mobile phone launches in Pakistan adopted the theme of simplicity while launching P10.

Recently, another Chinese brand Tecno launched in Pakistan but then again no company has ever come close to securing Hazoori Bagh, a historical heritage site of Pakistan, as the venue of their launch. Undoubtedly, this a message from South Korean company to other smartphone brands that the Samsung is still the number one brand despite its Galaxy Note 7 woes.


Umer Ghumman, Head of Mobile, Samsung EC Pakistan while talking to MORE shared that all the pre-ordered Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices have been sold and they have seen an overwhelmingly positive response in Pakistan. Following are the specs for Samsung’s latest flagship devices:
