In just two days, Samsung will finally make the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus flagship smartphones official at the Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event in New York City. Even though the official announcement is right around the corner, leaks haven’t stopped coming in. The upcoming flagship duo popped up on the AnTuTu benchmark database earlier today, re-confirming their key hardware specifications.
What is interesting is that both the Snapdragon 835– as well as Exynos 8895-powered variants of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been caught on AnTuTu. In case you are curious, the model number of the Snapdragon 835-powered variant caught on AnTuTu is SM-G9500 while the Exynos 9 8895-powered variant carries the SM-G950F model number. In the Galaxy S8 Plus’ case, the Snapdragon 835-powered variant carries the model number SM-G955U while the Exynos variant carries the SM-G955F model number.
Let’s talk about the basics first. All four variants are listed on AnTuTu with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. This more or less confirms the absence of a 6GB RAM variant, at least for the international market. A 128GB storage variant is seeming unlikely as well, although we cannot deny the possibility of it arriving later on in a select few markets. The AnTuTu listing confirms the camera setup as well. The duo will feature a 12MP camera at the back while on the front will be an upgraded 8MP unit for selfies, possibly integrating autofocus mechanism as well.
The display resolution, as you can see clearly, is listed to be 1080 x 2220. That’s because Samsung renders the UI in 1080p on Android 7.0 Nougat. The actual display resolution will be 1440 x 2960 with a unique 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
All the other details, including pricing and availability, will be revealed on Wednesday.
