The recent Galaxy S8 mega leak revealed that the smartphone will feature an unusual 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The exact resolution too has now been revealed, courtesy of a new leak out of China.
According to the leak, both the upcoming Galaxy S8 models will feature a 1440 x 2960 resolution Super AMOLED display. The smaller model with its 5.8-inch display will have a pixel density of around 567 pixels per inch, while the 6.2-inch model will have a pixel density of around 531 pixels per inch. Rival LG’s G6 flagship is rumored to have a 1440 x 2880 resolution display measuring 5.7-inches diagonally, so Samsung will have a slight edge in terms of resolution. Even though the G6 will have a slightly smaller display than the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8, it will “only” have a pixel density of 565 pixels per inch.
Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy S8 models at an Unpacked event to be held in New York City on March 29th. It is expected to go on sale starting April 21, roughly three weeks after its official announcement. The Galaxy S8 duo will be powered by either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or the Samsung Exynos 8895 10nm SoC, depending on the region. Both models will come with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB of expandable onboard memory, 12MP rear camera with an f/1.7 aperture lens and Dual Pixel tech, 8MP selfie camera, an iris scanner, USB Type-C port, and Bixby virtual AI assistant.
