A third-party case maker has once again shared details regarding the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Precise dimensions of both devices are exposed, including 5.7-inch and 6.3-inch curved displays.
Samsung is widely expected to unveil the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus in the coming weeks. A recent report suggested the company may be planning to show off the smartphones at Mobile World Congress 2017, which kicks off on Feb. 27, with Samsung reportedly eyeing an April release.
Interest in what Samsung has in store for its next-generation flagship smartphones has intensified over the last couple of weeks. We've already gotten a look at the Galaxy S8 inside a third-party case, which confirmed reports that Samsung would use a new bezel-less curved display and drop hardware home and navigation buttons for on-screen buttons.
Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus Dimensions Leak
Smartphone fans wanting a better view of the Samsung Galaxy S8 got an up-close and personal look at 3D renders of the smartphone's design courtesy of a third-party case maker. That same case maker is back, and this time, it is providing what are supposedly the exact dimensions of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus And Galaxy S8 Get Compared To Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge
GSMArena received the image above, which is reportedly the Galaxy S8 Plus, in addition to schematics for the Galaxy S8. According to the case maker, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus will measure 152.38 x 78.51 x 7.94 mm, which is taller and wider than the Galaxy S7 edge, which measures 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7 mm. The S8 Plus will reportedly feature a large 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display, a considerable increase over the 5.5-inch screen found on the Galaxy S7 edge.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 measures in at 140.14 x 72.20 x 7.30 mm and supposedly packs in a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display. The Galaxy S8 is shorter, thinner, and wider than the Galaxy S7, which uses a 5.1-inch screen and measures 142.4 x 69.6 x 7.9 mm.
If the dimensions reported are accurate, Samsung has managed to make its next-generation Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus slightly larger than their predecessors, while generously increasing the displays that will grace the smartphones. Both handsets are expected to be powered by a Samsung Exynos 8895 chip or Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor depending on region, massive 6 GB of RAM, Bixby AI personal assistant, and possible S Pen support.
It's believed that Samsung will drop the "edge" name for the larger Galaxy S8 Plus since the smaller Galaxy S8 will use the same curved display.
