Samsung Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone will come in two different display variants; 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch
Samsung’s upcoming flagship Galaxy S8 is the one of the most anticipated and awaited smartphone in the world. The device is expected to come available in two different variants based on the display size – one will be the 5.8-inch and the other will carry a 6.2-inch screen. The model with larger display will come christened as the Galaxy S8 Plus.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 was expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona later this year. But due to the trouble with the Galaxy Note 7, the launch of this device has been delayed. The smartphone is scheduled to be launched on 29th March in an event in New York.
The upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone will arrive with Super AMOLED QHD display. The resolution of this device will be 2560 x 1440 pixels. The top variant of the S8 was initially thought to be christened as the S8 Edge, but later the name was changed to S8 Plus. The smartphone will come with unique and very stylish design.
The South Korean tech major will remove the physical home button from the device. The upcoming Samsung flagship mobile will get a fingerprint sensor at the rear of the device. But it will be positioned beside the camera. This could create problem for some of the users due to the odd positioning of the sensor. At the front, the removal of the physical home button will make place for a functional area and it will also give the company chance to introduce a larger battery. Interestingly, Samsung’s biggest rival Apple is also removing the iconic physical home button from the upcoming flagship iPhone 8.
Samsung is also ready to introduce iPhone like force touch technology in the Galaxy S8. This device will come powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor accompanied by a 6GB RAM. The S8 will carry a 64 GB storage, while the S8 Plus will get a 128GB internal storage capacity. Battery capacity for the S8 and S8 Plus will be 3,000 mAh and 3,500 mAh respectively. The S8 will get a 12-inch rear camera and an 8 megapixel front shooter.
