If you didn't get a good glimpse of exactly how big will the Galaxy S8
be compared to their major rivals in our homebrew renders yesterday, a renowned leakster has sized them up, too, albeit in a more schematic way. As you can see above, the Galaxy S8
would eventually be a tad taller, but quite more narrow than the LG G6
with the same screen size. Since LG's flagship is already the most compact 5.7-incher money can still not
buy, the S8 screen-to-body ratio should be one for the ages, and hopefully a harbinger of things to come with phones down the road.
The S8+, on the other hand, will fit the needs of multimedia junkies that are drooling over large displays, but looking at the size it still seems like this may be a niche device. Granted, it would house a 6.2" curved display in a body the height of the iPhone 7 Plus
, but that's still one big phone to carry around. Thankfully, it is narrower thanks to the purported 18.5:9 aspect ratio of the screen, so it would be a bit easier to use it with one hand than the other phones in its size range that include the Pixel XL
. Which one would you pick, looking at the schematics above?
