Galaxy S8 Plus Spec Sheet Spots the Snapdragon 835 and Other Details
The larger brother of the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus is going to be announced alongside the 5.8-inch flagship and there are going to be a lot of advantages by purchasing it, with possibly the only drawback being its sheer size. The smartphone has now shown up at Geekbench, showing which chipset it is going to be running.
Galaxy S8 Plus Spotted Running a Snapdragon 835 – Exynos Chipset Model Yet to Be Leaked
Geekbench always ends up having something exciting for us and the leak of the Galaxy S8 Plus is nothing different as it shows the Snapdragon 835 (via MySmartPrice). There is a total of eight cores running in the chipset, where four of them will be responsible for tackling the more intensive applications such as 3D gaming while the remaining four will take care of less stressful tasks such as video streaming. Manufactured on the 10nm FinFET architecture, the Snapdragon 835 will promise better efficiency and also provides support for Quick Charge 4.0.
You can see that the Galaxy S8 Plus’ RAM value has been listed as 4GB, which is in line with the previous specification leak reported. The resolution of the massively sized smartphone is going to be retained at QHD and will be using Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays. The company is known to use the best smartphone displays on the planet, and it is going to be no surprise if the Galaxy S8 Plus resonates beautiful colors from its massive screen.
There is not going to be a dual-camera setup at the back side, so we’ll just be getting a single 12MP rear shooter, which we might add might feature a wider aperture than the one present on the Galaxy S7. There’s also an iris scanner provided, which we’re assuming could be positioned right next to the front-facing camera. 64GB of internal memory should be more than adequate to keep you from having a sluggish Android experience. We are more than certain that there’s going to be a MicroSD card slot opening provided.
Wireless charging support is also present, but you’ll have to purchase the charging pad separately, unfortunately. Nearly all smartphones come with earbuds but it looks like the accessory bundled with the Galaxy S8 Plus are going to be tuned AKG, an Austrian manufacturer of audio-related consumer goods, so here’s to hoping that they will be able to deliver clarity and high-quality sound.
Both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are going to be announced on March 29, so stay tuned for that unveiling later this month.
