In less than a month, Samsung is expected to announce its new flagship smartphones – Galaxy S8 and S8+ which will replace the S7.
The two will be unveiled on March 29 during the MCW 2017 and released on April 21.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Each device is expected to sport a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch display, respectively.
A new report from The Investor cites industry sources as saying that the pre-orders will open on April 10th, just two weeks after the official announcement date. Pre-orders tend to precede the official retail availability by a week or two, so we should be seeing the Galaxy S8 in stores sometime in mid to late April.
Of course, it won’t just be one new phone we’re seeing. Samsung is strongly rumored to be releasing two devices, and Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. As is tradition by this point, the Galaxy S8 is the mainstream device, while the S8+ will have a slightly bigger screen and marginally upgraded guts.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ will feature a near-bezel-less display and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM. The S8 might have a 3,000 mAh battery while the S8+ is said to have a slightly larger 3,500 mAh battery. As previously leaked images confirm, the S8 will have a USB-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and an Iris scanner.
Which device would you get? The S8 or S8+?
