Specs, features, colours and pricing have been revealed through various online avenues. Now, incredibly reputable device leaker Evan Blass is back with a comparison of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. The colour options are Black Sky, Orchid Grey, and Arctic Silver and while the renderings don’t do justice to the size, Blass notes “the individual renders here are not to scale (the real S8+ is significantly taller than the regular S8).”
The Galaxy S8 is expected to sport a 5.8-inch display while the S8 Plus is tipped to feature a 6.2-inch display. Powering the devices is Android 7.0 and powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor. The phones will also feature a back-facing fingerprint sensor, 3.5mm headphone jack and 4GB of RAM with 64GB storage and come with its new digital assistant called Bixby.
