A new leaked specifications screenshot suggests the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus may sport identical hardware specifications.
The leaked images and videos are plenty, keeping Samsung pretty much the most wanted smartphone manufacturer in the news. The S8 has generated so much hype that they have already managed to beat what Apple does with their iPhone. However, there is still time for the Cupertino company to launch their next iPhone 8. Until their, the Galaxy flagship models will continue to be popular without competition.
According to the leaked screenshot, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will sport a large 5.8-inch QHD+ resolution display with super AMOLED screen for maximum clarity. While the processor is not mentioned in the image, multiple sources confirmed that it will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 flagship SoC. It also includes 4GB of RAM, 12 megapixel dual pixel camera in the rear end and an 8 megapixel front camera. Unique features that will debut with the smartphone are the Samsung Pay, improved wireless charging technology, Iris scanner that adds security to the fingerprint scanner and audio fidelity is taken care of by earphones from AKG.
Everything about the Galaxy S8 is solid and premium justifying its price tag. The Galaxy S8+ has a larger 6.2”-inch full rectangle display. Additionally, it says 6.1-inch display with rounded corners which is not clearly explained in the leaked screenshot. Both these editions have QHD+ resolution with super AMOLED screen. The rest seems pretty much the same including the 12 megapixel camera, 8 megapixel front camera, Iris scanner, Samsung Pay support. It also has the same 4GB of RAM with 64GB storage space, exactly as the Samsung Galaxy S8 model.
Buyers who are interested in having a smaller display, if you could call 5.8-inch as small, will not have anything to lose in terms of performance and power. The smartphones are pretty much identical unlike the Apple iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus models. The camera on the bigger device had some nifty features and you are supposed to increase the screen size to get it. Pricing and availability of the devices continue to be rumored repeatedly. Samsung hasn’t made an official statement yet but it is evident with all the leaks that the launch is pretty close.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ is said to be revealed on March 29th in an exclusive event with a worldwide launch to take place on April 21st.
