Another day, and yet another leak related to Samsung’s upcoming premium Galaxy smartphones comes our way. A specifications list of the yet-to-be-announced Galaxy S8+ has been leaked, revealing almost everything. According to prolific tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks, the Galaxy S8+ will indeed sport a large 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display.
In a tweet, Blass shared a list claiming to show Samsung Galaxy S8+ specifications. The leaked list shows that the smartphone will feature 4G LTE support and come with a QHD+ screen resolution. The Galaxy S8+ is further said to pack 12-megapixel ‘dual pixel’ primary camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera. Much like the Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S8 is said to come with an IP68-rating for dust and water resistance. One of the biggest highlights of the new Galaxy S8 series is said to be the iris scanner which is corroborated by the new leak as well. The Galaxy S8+ is said to pack 64GB of inbuilt storage and support expandable storage via microSD card. The handset is said to come with 4GB of RAM, and support Samsung Pay. Some of the other features claimed by the leaked list include Samsung Knox, wireless charging support, and earphones tuned by AKG.
This is not the first time that the Samsung Galaxy S8+, which is widely rumoured to debut alongside the Galaxy S8 next month, has been leaked. Previously, the support page for the Samsung Galaxy S8+ was made live on the company’s India website with model number SM-G955FD. The Galaxy S8+ means that Samsung may finally ditch the Edge branding seen in last two predecessors Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
Recently, Samsung’s Mobile Chief Koh Dong-jin reportedly confirmed that the company would reveal the official launch date for the Galaxy S8 launch at MWC 2017 next week.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are expected to debut in March and are rumoured to go on sale from April.
