New Delhi: Samsung is set to announce the Samsung Galaxy X8 and Galaxy X9 models, the two new smartphones that will launch in India on February 27, with the two devices featuring the company’s newest smartphone lineup.
The launch is likely to be announced by the country’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi at an event on Tuesday, India’s top telecommunications regulator (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) has said.
The announcement is likely in the form of a series of media invites, which have already been issued to various media outlets and websites.
The invites will be shared by the company, the regulator said.
“We are ready to announce that these two smartphones will be launched in India in February,” the telecom regulator said in a statement.
The two new models are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor, a feature that has been used by Samsung for several months now to power its flagship phones in India.
It has also been used to power the Galaxy X series of phones.
The Galaxy X is the latest in a long line of smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 839 chipset.
The company has also launched the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note5, and Galaxy Note6 series of smartphones in India, and introduced the Galaxy Note7 smartphone in March.
The Samsung Galaxy phones launched in April 2015 have been the most popular phones in the country, accounting for more than half of all smartphones sold in India since the launch of the smartphones in the first quarter of this year.
However, the company has been struggling to gain traction in the market as its products are priced too high for most customers.
The flagship phones are available in two colours: white and black, and they come with a fingerprint scanner.
The devices also feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, which was introduced in September 2015, and feature the Adreno 430 GPU, which has been a popular chip for Samsung for years.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 735 chip is the most powerful in the world and has been Samsung’s mainstay for smartphones for a decade now.
