Depending on where the phones are purchased, under the hood will be the Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 chipset. Both offer an octa-core CPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. The 12MP rear-facing camera features an f/1.7 aperture, and the shooter includes OIS for steady video filming. The fingerprint scanner is located to the right of the rear camera. In front is an 8MP wide angle selfie snapping camera. The whole shebang is powered by a 3000mAh battery.
The only difference between the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ is the larger 6.2-inch display found on the latter, and the larger capacity 3500mAh battery that drives it. Both phones feature an IP68 certification rating meaning that they can be submerged to as deep as 3.3-feet for as long as 30-minutes, and escape unscathed. They both have a fingerprint scanner, an iris scanner and offer face recognition to verify identity.
We are less than two weeks away until the unveiling of the two phones that will most likely define what a flagship Android handset should be in 2017-2018.
