Galaxy S8 specs pop up on AnTuTu, S8+ gets sized with the S7 edge
This is the moment we all have been waiting for! Finally, a full list of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ specs! We kid, as most of what is revealed during the latest appearance of the phones in the AnTuTu benchmark database we already know, but it's nice to see it reconfirmed. Released in the official AnTuTu blog, the snapshots you see below are of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ models that passed through their benching routine. 

The SM-G950F denotes the international S8 version with Exynos 8895, while G950U is the unlocked unit with Snapdragon 835 that allegedly the US will get, including carriers like AT&T or Verizon. Ditto for the SM-G955F and 955U below, which denote the Galaxy S8+ international and unlocked version for the US, respectively.

What we learn anew from the AnTuTu specs listings is that the phones will come with 8 MP front-facing cameras, instead of the 5 MP units of their predecessors, so there might indeed be some upgrades like autofocus selfies snappers, as rumored before. They should also carry 64 GB of storage this time, an upgrade to last year's 32 GB editions. The screen resolution is listed like 1080x1920, or 1080 x 2220, so Full HD could indeed be the screens' default mode, and the unorthodox 18.5:9 aspect ratio could be the law of the land with these two puppies, as rumored.

As you can see on another leaked image of the S8+, this time sized up with the S7 edge, this new aspect ratio makes the phone taller but narrower, thus eventually easier to hold and operate with one hand. It would still be one pretty big handset, though, if this picture holds water in the end, but that's the price you'll have to pay if you want its 6.2" Infinity Display, or thereabouts.
