We are already less than a month away from Samsung’s Unpacked event where the Korean Giant will announce two new smartphones to succeed the Galaxy S7: The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Each device is expected to sport a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch display, respectively.
According to The Investor, an industry source claims that the Galaxy S8 duo will allegedly be going up for pre-orders on April 10, which is a good halfway point between the March 29 announcement date and the rumored release date of April 21.

We could safely assume that both devices would become available for pre-order on the same day. What we don’t know is the ratio of S8 to S8+ models that Samsung is planning to have available for launch. Our educated guess is that the Galaxy S8 will be more popular than the S8+, but we won’t know for sure until we see which model sells out first.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ will feature a near-bezel-less display and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM. The S8 might have a 3,000 mAh battery while the S8+ is said to have a slightly larger 3,500 mAh battery. As previously leaked images confirm, the S8 will have a USB-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and an Iris scanner.
As per the Samsung galaxy S8 specifications:-
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will come with a 5.8 inch Super AMOLED display with a Quad HD+ resolution and the device will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built in storage.
The handset will also feature a microSD card slot for expansion and it will come with either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor or the new Samsung Exynos 9 Series 8895 depending on the region.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature an 8 megapixel camera on the front for photos and videos and on the back there will be two 12 megapixel cameras.
Like the S8 Plus the S8 will also come with wireless charging and it will be dust and waterproof and will feature Samsung Pay and Samsung Knox.
Samsung are expected to make their new Galaxy S8 smartphones official at a press event on the 29th of March and the handset will go on sale in April.
Which device would you get? The S8 or S8+?
