Larger variant of the Galaxy S8 will be called the Galaxy S8+


Samsung is rumored to announce the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ on March 29. We already reported about the dimension and the 3D video about both of these devices a few days ago. The specifications of these devices have surfaced online as well, giving us a look at the hardware that will be available in this year’s flagships. According to the latest rumors, the larger model of the Galaxy S8 will offer a 3,750mAh battery, 6GB of RAM and much more. Now, renowned leakster Evan Blass has confirmed the logo of the larger variant, which will be called the Samsung Galaxy S8+.

Unlike last year, Samsung is said to be skipping of the edge moniker, as both variants of the Galaxy S8 will feature curved screens. The Galaxy S8+ is said to offer a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. The phone is rumored to have a 12-megapixel camera, while the front-facing camera could be an 8-megapixel unit.

Both of the devices are said to feature Snapdragon 835 SoC, and we will also see an Exynos 8895 SoC variant of the smartphone. In addition to these, we will also see an AI-based assistant on these smartphones, called Bixby. As of now the company still has not stated any exact date for the official launch, but a few minutes of a teaser for both of the devices will be aired at MWC 2017 where the Galaxy Tab S3 is expected to be unveiled.
