Both the smartphones come with the Infinity Display with relatively slimmer side bezels. The physical home button has made way for under-display embedded pressure sensitive home button. The fingerprint sensor has been shifted to the back of the device and is place right next to the camera setup. The placement has created difficulties for many users in accessing the sensor, with them accidentally placing the finger on the camera lens, leading to smudges. The smartphones come with IP68 certification and are dust and water resistant.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ specifications

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ both come with the dual curved edge Always-on, Infinity display. While the Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a 5.8-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ is larger with a 6.2-inch display. While Samsung announced the Samsung Galaxy S8 series devices with the Snapdragon 835 chipset as well as the Exynos 8895 processor, only the latter version is available in India. Both the devices come with 64GB internal storage (expandable up to 256GB) and 4GB RAM.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ come with a 12-megapixel rear camera with the front camera resolution of 8-megapixel. Additionally, the smartphones also support Samsung’s voice assistant – Bixby. However, the Bixby assistant is now available in full on all Samsung Galaxy S8 series devices and recent reports suggested Samsung is facing difficulties in teaching English and Chinese languages to the assistant, leading to further delays in roll out. Samsung Galaxy S8 is powered by a 3,000mAh battery while Samsung Galaxy S8+ comes with a larger 3,500mAh juicer.

Recent reports have suggested that Samsung plans to soon announce the Samsung Galaxy S8 Mini, a smaller and more budget version of the flagship smartphone. The phone is expected to feature a smaller 5.3-inch Infinity Display and be a compact device. Additionally, the ‘Mini’ version will also retain the same rear camera setup and the sensors on the device. The processor will most likely be a Snapdragon 821 chipset coupled with 4GB RAM. The internal storage is halved to 32GB. The smartphone is expected to be unveiled soon and be priced in the mid-range segment.
