A Samsung Galaxy S8 concept
While we only just found out that the larger variant of Samsung's newest flagship will be called the Galaxy S8+
, it seems Samsung India has been busy updating its website to accommodate for it. A support page for a device with the model SM-G955FD has recently gone live, revealing a possible dual-SIM version of the phone might be launched in the country.
We've previously heard rumors that the S8/S8+ will feature model numbers starting with SM-G950 and SM-G955, respectively, which is pretty much confirmed now. The FD at the end of this phone's model represents the international dual-SIM model of a device in Samsung's internal naming conventions, and also means it will use one the phone maker's own Exynos chipsets, possibly the rumored octa-core Exynos 8895
. The US version is expected to use the a Qualcomm chipset instead, namely the Snapdragon 835, as has been the case with past flagships.
While the S8+ support page doesn't reveal many new details, we still know quite a bit about the device – it's going to feature a 6' curved display with minimal bezels, and will do away with physical buttons on the front, moving the fingerprint scanner next to the rear camera. It's also going to heavily feature Samsung's new assistant, Bixby, which will be based on Samsung's previous offering, S Voice
. The device is expected to be announced later in March, along with its smaller brother, the Galaxy S8
. If you can't wait until then, we have a rumor review of the two devices
, and will continue to keep you covered with the latest leaks.
