The Samsung Galaxy S8 is probably the most awaited phone in 2017 so far. It is also coincidentally the one with the most leaked information. Fortunately, we have the invite to its unveiling tomorrow, we will fill you in on which of those leaks panned out. The leaks keep coming, however, but this time, we have the official accessories of the device and their prices.
First off, we have already met some of these accessories like the Samsung Dex station that turns your smartphone into a desktop experience. Apart from this one, we have other interesting accessories, they include a Keyboard Cover which goes on the front part of the phones screen to give you a physical keyboard experience, the way Blackberry KeyOne does.
Surprisingly, we have an accessory labelled Samsung Battery Pack, this might be referring to a Power Bank and not a battery charger like the ones they released with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, that phone had a removable battery unlike the Galaxy S8. The power bank will be 5,100 mAh with fast charge technology and a strap to help you carry it easily. The fast charge technology will be for both charging of the power bank and for the power bank charging other devices. Regardless of this accessory being officially released by Samsung, it will be able to charge other Non-Samsung phones. Unfortunately, at 5,100 mAh, the pack will not be enough to fill the S8 for even two full cycles. At the asking price of 70 Euros (KES 7,706), buyers can get better power banks with bigger batteries.
