The company formally announced the Galaxy S8 in New York last month, alongside the Galaxy S8+. The device comes in two models with different screen sizes – the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+. Unlike the S7 lineup, there’s now no flat model – but have the dual curved edges to the display. Both smartphones have a screen resolution of 2960×1440 and come with curved Super AMOLED screens.
Samsung likes to call “Infinity” display due to the increased screen size. The unusual shape of the Galaxy S8’s display is due to its ultra-wide display, which has an aspect ratio of 18:5:9 instead of 16:9. There’s no physical home button, moving to a pressure sensitive display arrangement for the home button, with customisable navigation controls on the screen. Meanwhile, the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the rear alongside the camera. Samsung Galaxy S8 is IP67 certified and supports wireless charging. There’s even a 3.5mm headphone jack despite the thin frame.
Both the phones come with 4GB RAM and run Android 7.0 Nougat with Samsung’s improved TouchWiz UI. These devices also feature 64GB of internal memory which can be further expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. One major difference between the Galaxy S8 and S8+ you should know is the battery size. The Galaxy S8 gets a 3,000mAh battery whereas the Galaxy S8+ offers a 3,500mAh battery.
