It is another day and as usual, we have another Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ leak. In fact, we have more than one leak today about these two phones.
With Samsung set to unveil the phones at the end of this month, a Verizon-destined Galaxy S8+ has just surfaced on the internet. The leaked images only show off the box of the phone with clear indications that it’s indeed a Verizon model.
There have been reports that Samsung Galaxy S8+ will be released in the U.S. somewhere after April 18, with pre-orders set to start on April 7. While no carrier has confirmed any of these details or even give out the possible release dates of the phone, the latest leak suggests that these devices are ready for the market. It is possible that this is a test unit, but since we didn’t see what’s inside the box, we can’t really tell what the Galaxy S8+ really looks like.
On the contrary, a separate leaked image gives out a better look at this phone in real life. Apparently, we know that Samsung Galaxy S8+ will ship with a monster 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display screen with curved edges, a little bigger than the 5.8-inch panel that will come with the standard Galaxy S8. Previous reports have suggested that the phones will keep the same QHD resolution as their predecessors, but due to the larger screens, experts were pretty sure that this will lead to weaker display specs for the phones.

If the latest report is to be believed, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will come with a much better resolution than what was previously touted. At full blast, the screens will be capable of a massive WQHD+ resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels. Given that this high resolution can also result in significant battery drains, the tech giant will let users choose between two other resolutions – Full HD+ (2220 x 1080 pixels) and HD+ (1480 x 720 pixels). From the looks, it seems the default resolution will be FHD+.
