FCC certifies the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+
The unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ have both been certified by the FCC in the U.S. The SM-G950U is the unlocked 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 while the SM-G955U is the unlocked 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+. The FCC documentation revealed that the unlocked models support all four major U.S. carriers. We expect the phones to be officially unveiled on March 29th in New York City. The actual launch is now rumored to take place on April 28th.

The Galaxy S8 is expected to carry a Gorilla Glass protected 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2960 resolution. Depending on the country, under the hood is either the Snapdragon 835 SoC, or Exynos 8895 chipset. Both feature an octa-core CPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. A 12MP camera adorns the back of the handset, sporting an aperture of f/1.7. The front-facing selfie snapper weighs in at 8MP with a wide angle lens. A 3000 mAh battery keeps the lights on.

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is believed to have the same specs except with a larger 6.2-inch screen, and a higher capacity 3500mAh battery. Both models will come with Android 7.1 pre-installed, an IP68 certification rating for protection from water and dust, a fingerprint scanner on back, and an iris scanner in front. The home button has disappeared from both units, although they will each sport a 3.5mm earphone jack.
