Alleged dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung S8 Plus leak

Alleged dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung S8 Plus leak
A report published today allegedly leaks the dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. The Samsung Galaxy S8 will reportedly weigh in at 140.14 x 72.20 x 7.30mm. While shorter and thinner than the Samsung Galaxy S7, this year's flagship will apparently be wider than the 2016 flagship. But that is because the 5.7-inch curved screen that is supposed to be employed on the Galaxy S8, is much wider than the smaller 5.1-inch flat screen used on the Galaxy S7.

With a rumored 6.2-inch curved display, the dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus are rumored to be 152.38 x 78.51 x 7.94mm. These measurements show that the premium model will be taller and wider compared to the Galaxy S7 edge, again due to the larger display.

While the images show the lack of a home button as rumored (the fingerprint scanner will be embedded under the display according to the latest rumors), there is a major caveat. The drawings show a microUSB 2.0 port which contradicts renders from case makers that show the Galaxy S8 sporting a USB Type-C port. With that in mind, you might want to take these dimensions with the proverbial grain of salt.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus could both be unveiled on February 26th and released during the week of April 17th.

6.2"? Dam! So what would the Note 8 be 7.2" or something?

The S7 Edge was 5.5" vs the Note 7 at 5.7" so I'm guessing the Note 8 would be closer to 6.3"-6.4"

Yeah but this article said the the S8 Edge is going to be 6,2 and the Note's are always bigger than the Edges.

Note 5 screen was the same size as the S6 Edge Plus (both 5.7").

Come on. There will be 5.2'' and 5.7'' versions of GS8. At the end, the media will say: 'Wow, we made typo, with 6.2'' instead of 5.2'', sorry' And get away with the lies. And you will say : 'No problem' LOL

The S8 is about the same size as the S7. According to the calculations with the ultra thin bezels they manage to fit a 5.7" screen vs 5.1" of the S7. I think the S7 size is compact enough so no need for a 5.2" GS8.

True. The Note's screen was .2" bigger than the S7 edge and from measuring a 6.3" to 6.4" hypothetical display on my Note 5, space would be tight given they use the same footprint as the Note 7 (they're very similar in size).

Device itself only 2mm taller than the Note 7. Thanks to screen to body ratio.

This was already proven FAKE. PhoneArena at its finest without doing research before posting.

O.K. I say, that there will be 5.2'' and 5.7'' versions of GS8.(or close to that). Both with jack input, and no Force Touch BS. Let's see if I'm right or the media. Mark my words!!!!

If there is really 6+'' device , it will be third version of GS8 , or some other device. The US media know, how nice you US ppl are, and you'll forgive them, for their illogical lies.

MHO, Samsung makes the best phones hands down. But I gotta gotta wonder if people are done paying the $800 we know this phone is going to cost, when there are phones like the 3T and Axon 7 out there, offering similar performance at half the price. I really wanted the Note 7 but looking for an alternative has lead me to look at devices I wouldn't have normally considered. I'm sure these will be great phones, but I'm not as excited about the flagship devices as I once was.

But the camera and video recording on those 2 phones compared to the s7 or s8 are junk though.

Are you in possession of the S8?

No, but i know it will be better.:)

True, but I could always purchase a better camera than any of of these phones and still save money.

Not a dumb phone, just not an $800 phone. It's getting kind of old.

Thank you! I couldn't agree more! Samsung was all about making phones better than iPhones at a cheaper price. I'm not going to be happy with a 20% price hike. They shouldn't charge more after the Note 7 issues.

Best phone. On the market nope overpriced yep. According to this site device will start at 849.99 you have to be really insane or a sheep to pay that much for the s7 2.0 ooh I forgot most of you guy's are sheep sorry.

BTW, I'll tell you how the media will try to get out, of this lie: They will say: 'There was just a ''small mistake'' in our ''reports'', writing 6.2'' instead of 5.2'' for the one of the models.' LOL

If you're referring to the home button, I agree. We'll see what Sammy cooks up.

As I have been saying for years ... there is a huge market niche above 6.0'' screen. Now listen to your daddy carefully samsung. Put a dedicated physical camera button on it and a pair of superb earphones inthebox and you are closer to ultimate portable smartdevice. Look no futher than Nokia N8 for new clues...my advices came for free, but i can sell a couple of new others if interested... btw stopcopycating Iphone its not worth it.

The S8 being wider doesn't make sense. Is should be smaller in every dimension. I really hope they dont make the screens larger. I like my 5.2 inch screens. It being wider kills one handed use and comfort.

Don't worry. See 15.

That's too bad. The relative compactness of the S7 flat is one of its best features. I hate to see Samsung increase it.

The body wont increase due to smaller bazels .... Its like 5.7 inch display in s7 body
