Samsung Galaxy S8 S8+ specs and design?
As everyone knows, there is a difference in the Samsung Galaxy S8 S8+ screen size. The S8 sports a 5.8-inch display and the Galaxy S8+ offers a bigger screen of 6.2-inch. Both are Super AMOLEDs with a 2K resolution (1,440 x 2,960 pixels) and rounded corners. Rumors about the home button removed are true! The two giants are powered by octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipsets. In some specific markets, there will be special versions equipped with Exynos 8895 chip. For both Galaxy S8 S8+, there will be 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM and 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM.
As for photography, Samsung S8 S8+ will certainly come with impressive shooters. Both phones have 12MP Dual Pixel sensor like the Galaxy S7 but now the improved software allows us to capture multiple exposures for better image quality. Samsung called this Multiframe Processing. The S8 S8+ selfie cameras sport an 8MP sensor with autofocus and clever face detection. The second difference between Galaxy S8 and S8+ is battery. The S8 packs a 3,000mAh battery and the bigger S8+ obviously offers a 3,500mAh battery. Both support Adaptive Fast Charging and fast wireless charging.
The new Galaxy S8 S8+ will have a smart voice assistant named Bixby. Bixby’s jobs are to respond to users’ voice requests, to observe everything around, and use image recognition to find landmarks and products on Amazon. What’s more, the two smartphones are waterproof with IP68 certified. They can “endure water, humidity, and complete submersion to liquids”. The two flagships have Gorilla Glass 5 protection too.
