Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be unveiled at the MWC 2017 show instead, the company will hold an event on March 29 during which this phone will be launched.
There has been too much talk about the Galaxy S8 already. In fact, just about every specs and features of the phone has been leaked, but as usual, we cannot fully trust such information as it doesn’t come from the company itself. Nonetheless, these leaks and rumors are the only channels we have right now with respect to getting a clue of what Samsung is indeed working on.
Not so long ago, notable leaker Evan Blass exposed what are the first real images of the rumored Samsung Galaxy S8. From the images, it is true that the company is going Edge screen with the standard S8. The images also show the curved rear part of the phone that is made of glass, an indicator that the phone will be made of glass all through, just like previous rumors had pointed out.
According to Blass, Samsung Galaxy S8 will ship with a screen size of about 5.8 inches while larger model will come in with an even bigger 6.2-inch screen. Even though Blass confirms that the two will ship with a QHD resolution, he doesn’t give out the exact figures when it comes to the pixels’ count. But a new leak has just emerged with these details – and you’ll love them.

Apparently, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will come in with a screen resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels, which is larger than the 2560 x 1440 pixels that usual QHD screens come with. This is probably due to the larger screens yet the company wants to maintain the same screen quality as what has been happening since the Galaxy S6. This change in screen resolution is not the only one, though, as another report claims that the aspect ratio will also change from the 16:9 used on the S7 to a massive 18.5:9.
If this materializes, we stand the chance of seeing a tight display competition between Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6, which is also said to be coming with a 5.7-inch QHD+ screen that has an aspect ratio of 18:9.
These are just rumors and speculations, but there should some level of truth in them, especially when considering their sources. Nonetheless, we’ll still have to wait and see what Samsung and LG have in store with respect to their flagships’ display screen and other features. LG G6 will be launched at the MWC 2017, but there is no confirmation on the official release date, although it could happen before Samsung Galaxy S8 is released in mid-April.
