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.

This design is equally silly as iPhone Plus IMO. Whole point of big phones and big screens is to be able seeing the visual content bigger. It's a very big phone, it has a very big screen, but when you looking either an image or video, it wouldn't look bigger than S7 Edge. When you are reading a text, unless it's on landscape mode you won't see the letters bigger. Even then the providers released more 18:9 content, you will have just extra wide content. In the iPhone Plus case it has totally useless bezels, instead to not so useful extra tall screen of S8+, but the latter also has replaced very useful component to a place hard to reach unless you have long fingers, even impossible some cases. If I would carry such a tall device, I would go for a Xiaomi Mix like really big screen which I can see images, videos and texts bigger, despite the fact it's wider than iPhone Plus and (most probably) much wider than S8+.

I disagree... I prefer taller devices rather than wider devices... I had no issues transitioning from iPhone 3gs to iPhone 5s which is same width screen but taller - it was actually easier to use than say, just expand vertically AND horizontally. I think the rumored S8 leaks are spot on for comfort and taking advantage of size.... to each his own, I guess..

Actually, a lot of movie material and some series are close to this aspect ratio and for using 2 apps at the same time, it does add helpful space.

Samsung is thinking about all kinds of hands and pockets. Mi mix will always be inferior in compactability and pocket friendly features against s8+. The nerrow sides makes the device easier to hold as well. There is nothing perfect in life, just better or different according to what you are looking for.

I wouldn't call it pocket friendly. It will stick out like iPhone Plus and Mi Mix if your pockets are not deep enough. Of course it will be easier to hold, hence screen itself only wide as a 5.5 incher. BTW the Mix also has a non-standard aspect ratio, so it's only wide as a 6.1 incher. If the Mix had a standard 16:9 screen, the phone would only tall as S7 Edge.

-YOU- wouldn't call it pocket friendly, -I- certainly do. You need to read my reply again. i wrote, there is nothing perfect in life, samsung is thinking about all kinds of hands and pockets so they made 2 sizes. Many many people hands and pocket will do great with s8+ size and many many other hands and pockets will do better with s8 size. There is no custom made phone. Going to 18:9 ratio is an expected shift because it allows more flexibility in ui and more display in media content. You can't have everything, that is why samsung made two sizes.

Also you need to read my comments again. I'm only talking about S8+ not the smaller one. Also I clearly didn't disagree with you about nothing being perfect. You can call it more pocket friendly, if your pockets can't contain extra 10mm wider device. At the most cases limitation with the pocket size is depth not width in my experience.

I did not mean that certain pockets can't handle wider phones. It seems that we agree but need to read each replies more carefully. I just mean that samsung cannot please everybody exactly how a certain consumers would wish the phone size to be. My pockets can handle a 6.4" 16:9 device with small bezel just fine, no prob, but since the shift is to 18:9 ratio i wouldn't wish for a much bigger display size then lets say, 6.4" since such 18:9 displays result in more length and as you wrote, more length is more problematic than more width. On the other hand, we can't stop the shift to 18:9 because its natural evolution for its pros. So arguably the best general solution is having a bigger size option around 6.4" 18:9 display with narrow bezel device - that should please the people with the deepest pockets who wish for the biggest display in a phablet. I hope note 8 spec rumors are true in regard to 6.4" 18:9 size (i know its 18.5:9 but meh 0.5...) I thought s8+ is my next line but now with note 8 rumors i am totally putting an eye on the note line again as favorite. I have note 5 and i'm satisfied but my future device is most likely note line again.

The FPS is not hard to reach. Theer are lots of phone with it on the back. Just because Smasung chose to not centralize it, doesn't mak eit harder to reach. You odn't even own the phone, so you have no idea how easy or hard it is. Based on how i hold my Note 7, my Index finger will be right near the FPS. Seems like a decent spot. They didnt get rid of anything. It was simply moved. You sound like some spoiled old man."Someone moved my spit bucket from its usual spot"...WAHHHH WAHHH WAHHH!

Actually I am thinking rear placed FPS is more comfortable to reach when the phone is your hand and I'm still standing there. All of those different placements have their own quirks. At all of those phones FPS have been placed under camera, it's perfect spot for rear placement IMO. That means two things for the S8+. 1. Index finger need to reach to a higher point comparison to those other phones. Also the S8+ (not regular S8) is an extra tall device. Which makes the matter worse. 2. Hence it's not centered it's more awkward to use for lefties. I didn't even mention the reasons all of those home button lovers I guess like you once upon a time fervently advocated why it's superior. You also don't even own the phone yet, but you already have an idea of your own. So am I.

From my experience, putting the fps in the front on the display itself is the most comfortable place. Its not perfect, nothing is perfect but its the best option. I can see where i press, i can use it even if the device is on the table or lap, etc., i can never miss it, even if i hold the device with one hand there is no problem because my holding hand thumb is always free and the other hand is free as well. No freaking brainer afaic. Back fps is a bad idea just as any other back button placement is a bad idea like volume keys, etc. Anyway, all devices will have the fps on the display itself in a year or two, starting with the flag once and that is a welcome natural evolution. According to the leaks, Note 8 should debut it and that is awesome.
