The Galaxy S8 leaks are continuing today with a new batch of images that shows both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ next to each other and from various angles in the clearest look yet. The size difference between the two is clearly visible here, and so is the fact that Samsung has managed to cram large screens in compact bodies thanks to the edge-to-edge displays.
The S8+, however, isn’t exactly too compact, which isn’t surprising as a 6.2-inch display is expected to be an ergonomic nightmare no matter how small the bezels surrounding it might be. The images also reaffirm that Samsung is going for on-screen navigation buttons this year, with the home button to always be visible (no doubt to make the transition from hardware keys easier for consumers). There’s also an image that shows the top part of the phone very clearly, revealing the front-facing camera and an iris scanner, alongside regular sensors such as the ambient light sensor.
Other aspects of the device reiterated by the new pictures include its USB Type-C port and the presence of a headphone jack. The Galaxy S8 is expected to feature a Quad HD+ display, the Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 SoC, 4GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera, at least 64GB of internal storage, and Android 7.0 Nougat. A variant with 6GB of RAM is rumored for some markets, but nothing is confirmed at this point in time. Samsung will be unveiling the device on March 29th, with sales expected to start in late April.
