Samsung Galaxy S8

Leading into the week that will certainly be claimed by Samsung, a new round of details has surfaced regarding its flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

According to German-based site WinFuture, Samsung will be releasing the “best features” of its Galaxy smartphones that will have a “groundbreaking design.” Like so many previously leaked specs, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will reportedly feature a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch displays with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 (18.5:9 aspect ratio).

Powering both devices is Android 7.0 and Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 835 chipset (European markets will have Samsung’s Exynos 8895 Octacore-SoC), 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot. The cameras in the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will feature a 12-megapixel sensor (1.4µm pixel size), f/1.7 aperture, phase detection, laser autofocus, and 4K video recording. The front-facing camera will be an 8-megapixel camera that has the ability “to capture highly dynamic situations.”

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will come with both an iris scanner and also a fingerprint sensor for added security. In addition, the smartphones will reportedly be certified to IP68 water-resistant like the Galaxy S7 and come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, LTE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and a USB Type-C port.

As for the battery, which is something Samsung has been putting a great deal of attention on since the Galaxy Note 7 recall, the Galaxy S8 will have a 3000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S8 Plus packs in a 3500 mAh battery, with fast wireless charging.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Guard

While Canadians will most likely not be privy to this added bonus, Samsung will announce something called “Samsung Guard S8,” which basically extends your device warranty and offers owners the option to have their device repaired within 2-hours.
