Samsung Galaxy S8 & the S8+ smartphones are expected to make a debut later by the end of March. While we wait for both the smartphones to get an official announcement, we now have the specs of one of the variants of the Galaxy S8. Evan Blass, as usual, knows everything about the smartphones and he has decided to share the info with all of us via Twitter. Taking a look at the spec sheet of the smartphone, we all have everything we need to know about the smartphone.
According, the leaked specs sheet of the smartphone, the upcoming Galaxy S8+ will sport a huge 6.2″ display on the front which will be a Super AMOLED QuadHD display. Since the edges of the display are rounded off, we lose a little bit of the screen real estate, and with the rounded edges, the display size comes to about 6.1″, which is still comparatively larger than the previous year’s Galaxy flagship. Talking about the cameras, we will be getting a 12MP Dual Pixel rear facing camera whereas, on the front, we will have an 8MP camera.
The Galaxy S8+ will also carry the Iris Scanner on the front which can be used to unlock your smartphone. The Iris scanner was also there in the Galaxy Note 7phablet, which unfortunately will never be sold in India again. While the SoC of the smartphone is unknown at this point, we do have info about the RAM and the total internal storage capacity. The smartphone will come with 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded further via a microSD card.
It is not really surprising to see only 4GB of RAM since all the previous rumors pointed towards the same. However, it is worth noting that other smartphones from Samsung like the C9 Pro come with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone will be powered by Android software which is expected to be 7.0 Nougat. It will also support Samsung Pay and is secured by Samsung Knox. Another inclusion in the hardware department is the Wireless charging, with which you can charge the device using a charging pad which is sold separately.
The pricing of the Samsung Galaxy S8+ is the only thing which is yet to be known since we pretty know everything else about the smartphone. It is expected that the pricing will be comparatively more than the last year’s variant, but we don’t know by how much exactly. Meanwhile, let us know what do you think about the specs of the smartphone and would you be interested in buying one when it eventually comes to India.
