Samsung Galaxy S8 + (S8 Plus) Confirmed
The rumours that Samsung would release two models of the Samsung Galaxy S8, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and a 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus, designed to attract Galaxy Note 7 users who were reluctant to give up their larger screens.
We have a logo as evidence that the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 is called ‘Galaxy S8+’
Famous leaker Evan Blass (Twitter @evleaks), is back with the logo of the larger Galaxy S8.
The logo tells us that Samsung is dropping the ‘Edge’ label from its phone series this year, which fits in line with what we expected from the Korean Manufacturer, pulling its flagship smartphone in-line with the iPhone naming convention just like apple did when they decided to make a larger handset to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note series.
With the exception of its 6.2-inch screen differentiation, the S8+ is expected to feature a larger storage capacity (128GB V’s 64GB of storage for the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8).
Both handsets will feature the Snapdragon 835, along with a front camera with autofocus and an S Pen.
It’s quite likely that Samsung will no longer be offering a flat-screened counterpart of its newest flagship mode.
The Galaxy S8 will be the second Samsung device to become available in a dual-curved version.
While Samsung typically debuts its new flagship phone in full at Mobile World Congress, the company has reportedly delayed the phone’s launch to avoid another Note 7 battery disaster.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ could unveil some time between March 16th and April 20th.
The rumors that the Galaxy 8 and 8+ launch date will be confirmed at the MWC in Barcelona this month.
