Spec sheet for Samsung Galaxy S8+ leaks revealing almost everything you want to know


A spec sheet for the Samsung Galaxy S8+ has been leaked by tireless tipster Evan Blass. First, some background on the device. With Samsung deciding to equip the Samsung Galaxy S8 with a dual-curved edge screen, the company figured that it would be best to scrap the unneeded Galaxy S8 edge for a larger screened Galaxy S8+. The latter reportedly carries the same specs as the Galaxy S8, but with a larger 6.2-inch display. Of course, the larger screen would require a larger battery.

Instead of guessing, why not show you what is supposedly a real Galaxy S8+ spec sheet. Most of the specs listed are exactly what we were expecting, although we should point out that a fingerprint scanner is conspicuous by its absence. Apparently, Samsung feels extremely confident in the iris scanner that will apparently be included on the device.

We also note the optional wireless charging feature that will require shelling out for a charging pad. And 4GB of RAM might disappoint some who were looking for Sammy to go to the next level with 6GB of the stuff.

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ should be officially introduced on March 29th along with the Galaxy S8.

I'm Disappointed TBH. Sounds more like an S7 pro/plus/deluxe than the S8. Also there is that stupid FPS placement.

The S8 is not exciting enough to be priced around $1000. Also, given the price (if reports are true), it should have 6gb of ram and 128gb of storage standard.

What do ypu newd 6GB for? I domt want ot just because another phone has it, i want ot if its needed. The Galaxy doesnt newd 6GB of RAM. I agree the storage should be 128. I dont need a S8 with the same capabokoties as the Note 7 without a pen with 6GB. You guys complain about Samsung adding things the phone doesn't need. If the Note 7 handled all.its caoabilitiea with 4GB and the S9 now has similar, please explain what we need 2 more GB for? You guys complain about the most petty bullcrap. Complaon about somethomg qorthwhole, like OEMs skimping on storage or something.

You're the stupid one. Do you really think you need to have the entire OS in RAM? In that case I hope you have at least 64GB on your desktop PC, and don't run any other apps as Windows should use that.

S8 base price is $849 I'm sure they'll give it 128GB/256GB storage for $1000 variant

So it's ok for Apple to sell its iPhone for 1000$ with low-spec, outdated and leftover hardware? Not to mention it's careless customer responsibility.

Iphone 7+ runs circles around all Samsungs on the market today. Plus they also don't catch on fire, which is a huge bonus.

Something NEEDS to be said about Apple and it's this: Samsung has now caught on the to the fact that they, like Apple, have a loyal following & no longer need to ride the bandwagon of overdoing specs...They can now invest more in marketing, form-factor, and hopefully optimization to enhance quality of UX and usability.

You need to go to China/India for that. They get much better value for money. Models in China/India gets 6GB RAM.

Because it doesn't live up to the hype, it's boring and I hate the FPS placement of the new design so that's a fail. No dual camera, 4gbs of ram, the price is way to high for a base of 64gb memory, we are talking $1000 here man. The S8 is just missing so much that ppl were hoping for so how could I not be disappointed.

The funniest thing is samsung is the one who needs to have more RAM than any other devices to handle all of their bloatwares and extra features... The design looks fantastic except FPS... i expected a 16MP dual pixel camera with complete native wide screen photo capture and video... except the screen everything is soo disappointing...

also, we don't know what processor will be onbaord, and that 4GB of ram is ridicoulous. One plus 3/3T has 6 and costs 400 bucks, not tax. S8+ wants lower specs for 1K plus tax, almost 1,100 for a phone. Sorry....no.

Im actually very proud of them: They'd believed in themselves well enough to be convinced that, like Apple, could save a whole lot of money if they'd only stop the spec war and optimize the UX while enhancing the presentation of the phone.

there's nothing exciting about the S8 beside the removal of home button and the bezel-less design... the rest sounds like a S7 to me

I'd choose bezel-less design with midranger spec over other flagship option.

Maybe that won't be final design. Don't think Samsung would upset their customers with that odd finger print scanner.
