After it was confirmed that the larger variant of Samsung Galaxy S8 will be dubbed S8+, the South Korean tech giant has taken to its official website to update details about the upcoming flagship.
According to Samsung India, Samsung Kazakhstan and Samsung Singapore, the tech giant will – as usual – release a Samsung Galaxy S8+ Duos in these markets. It happened with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 so it’s not strange for this to happen with the Galaxy S8+ and hopefully the S8 as well. However, what’s strange here is the fact that Samsung has taken this initiative well ahead of the release or even launch of the phone in question. So, what does this mean?
In essence, the listings of Samsung Galaxy S8+ do not say a thing about the expected release dates of the phone in the mentioned markets. However, thy give out a key detail about the model number of the phone, which is how we got to know that this model is a dual-SIM variant. Apparently, this S8+ variant will ship with model number SM-G955FD.
There are lots of rumors doing rounds regarding both Samsung Galaxy S8+ and its smaller brother Galaxy S8, but very few info has come directly from Samsung. If anything, this could be the first major confirmation from the tech giant that indeed the Galaxy S8 is just around the corner. While some could say the support pages were sent live by mistake, it could be that Samsung is simply trying to add fuel to the already burning desire to meet the S8 twins.
Given that Samsung has listed the Galaxy S8+ Duos for Indian, Kazakhstani and Singaporean markets, it is possible that these could be the major regions where this variant is rolled out. However, anything could change once the phone is out. Just recently, it was confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy S8+ will ship with a 6.2-inch QHD resolution Super AMOLED screen while the S8 will come in with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED panel with the same resolution. We expect the Snapdragon 835 to power the phone when it arrives alongside 4GB RAM on the lower side and 6GB RAM on the upper side.
If all goes according to plan, Samsung Galaxy S8+ and the smaller S8 will be launched on March 29 and released two or three weeks later in South Korea, China, and the U.S., among other markets.
