Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus Models Shown Side by Side, Screen Sizes Detailed Too
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been rumored to come with larger displays compared to their predecessors for a number of reasons. Primarily, the company’s intent was to help consumers ease over the accidents that took place with the Galaxy Note7 and additionally, there are more than just a few advantages of purchasing a phablet. Granted, those with smaller hands will be encumbered by its sheer size, and the latest leak shows both devices pictured side by side featuring enormous sizes.
Galaxy S8 Leaked to Feature a Screen Size That’s Larger Than Any Galaxy Note Phone Released
The leaks keep coming in and where the Galaxy S8 was rumored to feature a 5.7-inch display earlier, the specification details state that the smartphone will have a 5.8-inch display, while the Galaxy S8 Plus (via Sammobile) will have a 6.2-inch panel. This means that the Galaxy S8 Plus will also have a larger battery capacity as opposed to its smaller screen brother, but we also believe that Samsung will reintroduce the feature where you will be able to reduce the resolution of the phone in order to conserve more battery life.
You can also see the soft home button on both the devices, suggesting that the physical home button has been replaced once and for all with a higher screen real estate coupled with that soft button.
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are going to be running the Exynos 9810 chipset along with the Snapdragon 835. One of the key upgrades we wish to see from Samsung’s high-end SoC is a powerful GPU. The Exynos 8890 was no pushover but its Mali-T880 being unable to deliver the necessary performance as opposed to Snapdragon 820’s Adreno 530 meant that ARM had to bring something with much more performance delivery. As it just happens, ARM’s Mali-G71 might be the upgrade that we all have waiting to see in smartphones.
Both devices are going to be unveiled during the month of March, but their official announcement details are going to be divulged during MWC 2017.
