Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are expected to be launched on April 15 if at all the latest reports coming from Korea are to be believed.
The tech giant had been expected to unveil the phone at next month’s MWC 2017 event, but it seems this won’t be the case. In fact, some had claimed that a few units of the both Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will be at the show, but this hasn’t been talked about yet by the OEM.
Despite everything, GSM Arena has stumbled upon some interesting information about Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. If this is true, we may just have seen what the phones will be like when compared to the current Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The leaked images reveal the full dimensions of the larger Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus courtesy of the recently leaked cases of the same phone.
Apparently, Samsung Galaxy S8 will come in with measurements of 140.14 x 72.20 x 7.30 mm, making it slightly shorter and thinner than the current S7, which measures 142.4 x 69.6 x 7.9 mm. Despite the reduced physical size of the standard S8, it comes with a larger screen size of 5.7 inches, which is even bigger than the one on the S7 Edge.
On the other hand, the bigger S8 Plus will have measurements of 152.38 x 78.51 x 7.94 mm. When compared to the Galaxy S7 Edge, which measures 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7 mm, it is obvious that the former will be taller, wider and a little thicker as well. On the brighter side, it also means that you get an even bigger screen that measures about 6.3 inches, almost matching the rumored 6.2-inch display panel for the Galaxy S8 Plus.
Like rumored, there are no side bezels on either phone, the top and bottom bezels have grown a lot thinner and the physical home button has also been dropped, hence the increased display sizes.
