Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are just a couple of days away from launch, with the event set to take place on Wednesday this week.
As expected, more leaks have also appeared about the two phones and this time it’s from benchmarking platform AnTuTu and another comes from Indonesia’s P3DN. The former has details of both Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ running on two different processors – Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895.
According to AnTuTu, all Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ handsets will ship with a default resolution of 1080p. There will be a 4GB RAM on each variant alongside a storage of 64GB. In terms of optics, the benchmarking platform confirms earlier reports that had pointed towards a 12MP sensor for the back and an 8MP shooter on the front. You’ll get Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
There are also some details about the phone’s model numbers. Apparently, the variants that have appeared on AnTuTu have model numbers SM-G9500/SM-G950F for Samsung Galaxy S8 and SM-955F/SM-G955U for the Galaxy S8+. There’s nothing new these benchmarks give us apart from what we already know about these two phones.
In another separate development, it seems Indonesians can be sure of getting the Galaxy S8 and S8+ alongside other major markets across the globe as the phones have been certified by the country’s P3DN. The phones will carry model numbers SM-G950FD and SM-G955FD, an indicator that these phones will support dual-SIM connectivity.
As noted earlier, we only a couple of days before Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are made official. The two phones have been in the rumor mills for months now, but their launch will not mean they’ll be available for purchase immediately. In fact, it could take weeks or even months before the two phones reach your local market. We’ll be here to inform you about the official release dates of the phones in different markets across the globe. Stay tuned!
