Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus to reportedly feature a 6-inch display

Earlier reports had suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S8 flagship would be available in 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch size variants, just like its predecessor. Now a fresh report out of Samsung’s home country of South Korea suggests otherwise. As per the source, Samsung is making two variants of the Galaxy S8 – one with a 5-inch display and another with a 6-inch screen, with the latter being called the Galaxy S8 Plus.

The report claims that Samsung has already ordered parts for two devices with the aforementioned screen sizes. The rumour suggests that there will be no physical home button on the upcoming Samsung flagship and that the screen will occupy the biggest part of the front panel. This will allow the device to retain the same size as the Galaxy S7 edge, despite a bigger 6-inch screen. The brand has allegedly told its suppliers to start producing parts for both Galaxy S8 variants from next month.

A recent report suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S8 would sport a wraparound, bezel-less OLED display. It will likely sport a virtual home button, which would be placed below the glass in the lower section. The device will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC or the brand’s own latest Exynos chipset. It is also rumoured to come with an upgraded digital assistant, allegedly dubbed Bixby.

The reports suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will not be unveiled at MWC 2017 in March. Instead, the company is planning to launch the new flagships at a separate event in New York in April. There’s no way to confirm the authenticity of these reports, so it’s advisable to take the news with a pinch of salt for now.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ feature an onscreen pressure sensitive home button instead of a physical button, with the fingerprint sensor moved to the rear next to the primary camera. Apart from this, the phones also offer Iris scanners and face recognition security features.

Samsung’s latest flagships ship with its new Bixby smart assistant, which gets a dedicated button on the left side. They also come with support for the DeX dock, which lets you hook the phones up to a monitor and keyboard for a PC experience.

Top 8 Features of Samsung Galaxy S8 Mobiles

It’s official! Samsung has finally taken the covers off its latest flagship devices at its UNPACKED event in New York. After months of rumors and leaks, it all boils down to this… the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ have been revealed. The launch is probably one of the most important ones in the Korean giant’s diary, not only because of the wide array of new features on store, but also because it marks the brand’s first flagship launch after the unforgettable Note7 fiasco last year.

On the bright side, this also means that Samsung would have tested each part more rigorously in order to ensure nothing comes in the way of the best Smartphone it has to offer till date. But what makes the Samsung Galaxy S8 such a promising device? Here’s a look at the top eight features of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Design

One of the hallmark features of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 duo is the revolutionary design; it seems like bezels are a thing of the past. Apart from the minimal bezels on the top and bottom, there is no wasted space on the front fascia. The physical home button is no more, but it’s now available onscreen and is pressure sensitive just like the iPhone’s force touch! The Galaxy S8 is one of the best looking Smartphone ever made by Samsung. The glass blends nicely to the metal chassis which further flows to the glass back that has far become a go-to choice for premium Samsung Smartphone. And did we mention that the device comes with IP certification against dust and water? Sweet.

Infinity display

The Galaxy S8 flaunts a 5.8-inch AMOLED infinity display with minimal bezels, while the Galaxy S8+ utilizes a 6.2-inch panel. Both displays sport a resolution of 2,960 x 1,440 pixels and curve on the side edges. They come with rounded corners which give them an appealing look. The inclusion of the Always On display is a welcome addition. Samsung also promises richer colors, thanks to the Mobile HDR Vibrant certification for the display. A point worth noting here is that due to the slim bezels, Samsung has managed to fit a 5.8-inch display in a body smaller than most 5.5-inches.

Hardware

As expected, you get all the hardware prowess you expect from a Samsung flagship. For instance, the device is powered by a Snapdragon 835 / Exynos 8895 SoC (depending on region), coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. The shift to 10nm manufacturing process will result in better performance, more efficiency and also produce less heat. Apart from this, the Galaxy S7 runs on Android Nougat out-of-the-box and comes with support for Google Daydream and Vulcan API. For the audiophiles, Samsung has included a “Bluetooth dual audio” feature using which you can stream audio to two Bluetooth devices at once, as well as manage their volume levels individually. 

Plethora of unlock options

An iris scanner in the S8 duo was widely expected, especially since the Galaxy Note7 featured one. But it’s just one of the unlock options you’ll have at bay. You can choose to use your fingerprint, your iris scan or even the new face recognition technology that can unlock your device in a jiffy. What’s more? You can use these methods to restrict access to the apps you want secured.

Cameras

At the rear, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ feature the same 12MP dual-pixel camera as their predecessor, albeit with a few improvements. One of the key additions is the new multi-frame processing which takes multiple photos and takes the best out of each photo to create one photo of richer quality. Other features like OIS and different modes like panorama, slow motion, and pro mode make a reappearance. At the front, the devices sport an 8MP sensor that now comes with autofocus, a rarity in present day Smartphone.

Bixby

Bixby is Samsung’s answer to the Apple’s Siri. But where it gets ahead is that Bixby understands context on your screen. What this means is that Bixby understands what’s on your screen and performs accordingly. Samsung has also incorporated Bixby with the camera, allowing you to gather more information about locations, translate languages and much more. And, did we mention that Bixby gets its own physical button on the side?

For power users

Despite a slim streamlined design, Samsung has managed to include some of the fan favourites. The hybrid microSD card slot returns, meaning you can either use two SIM-slots or a single SIM and a microSD card up to 256GB. Furthermore, the Korean giant has also included a 3.5mm headphone jack in its latest flagships. Talk about having courage. So, whether you like to store big videos on your device or if you’re an audiophile, the Samsung Galaxy S8 has got you covered.  

Samsung DeX

You can use the new Samsung DeX dock accessory for the Galaxy S8 to turn your phone into a PC. Just connect your phone to the device, along with a monitor, keyboard and mouse if you so wish to. What you’ll get is bigger and better apps, with resizable windows, much like a desktop experience. Apart from this, Samsung also introduced a new Gear360 VR camera. Combine that with the Gear S3 and GearVR, and you’ll have a whole bunch of Samsung accessories to go with your new smartphone.

Of course, most of these features have been available in the market in some form or the other, be it the DeX which feels similar to Microsoft’s Surface Dock, or the taller Infinity display which reminds us of the recently launched LG G6. But Samsung has created a beautiful amalgamation of all these features in a stunning device. What’s your favourite feature of the Galaxy S8 and S8+

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ unboxing and first impressions: explosive flagships, figuratively speaking of course

A lead actor in Bollywood is as good as his or her last movie, a batsman as good as his last innings. This holds true in the Smartphone world too, especially when we’re talking about a top-tier brand like Samsung, and especially if it concerns its last big flagship. The Note7 debacle is fresh in our minds as we write this, and therefore, the latest and greatest from the Chaebol, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have a lot riding on their shoulders. The onus is upon them to make things right, so to speak, and ensure that Samsung can come out on top yet again by wowing the consumers with what they have to offer. With the S8 and S8+, Samsung needed to perform a fine balancing act – stick to the tried and tested to be on the safer side, yet pack in enough oomph to wow the world. We’ve just had a chance to play with the new flagships briefly and we think Samsung might just have pulled it off.

sam 1

The oomph we referred to earlier comes in the form of a radical new design, which basically gets rid of the bezels and helps cram in larger displays in relatively compact bodies. The screen-to-body ratio is insane, which means that the Galaxy S8 can pack in a 5.8-inch display (dubbed Infinity Display) in a body even smaller than regular 5-inch phone. Similarly, the S8+ packs in a 6.2-inch display in a body hardly bigger than a conventional 5.5-inch phone. The S8 and S8+ screens feel longer and narrower than the usual, and the brand has changed the screen aspect ratio to 18.5:9, somewhat like the upcoming LG G6. The design change means there’s no place for Samsung’s familiar home button / fingerprint scanner combo on the chin. To get around this, Samsung has moved the fingerprint scanner to the back, to the right of the camera module. The home button and the navigation keys are now onscreen. The screens on both flagships are curved on both sides, much like the Galaxy S7 edge, and the construction is mostly glass (with a metal frame between the front and the back). We think you’d need to be careful and avoid dropping your S8 / S8+ at all costs, if you don’t want to risk scratches and dents… or worse, ending up breaking the screen. 

To give you an idea of what the retail box contains, apart from the phone, you get a USB Type-C cord, wall charger, a pair of premium AKG earphones with spare rubber tips, a USB Type-C OTG adapter, and lastly, a Type-C to micro-USB adapter as well.

Interestingly, the Galaxy S8 duo are the first Smartphone to come with Bluetooth 5.0. Apart from other advantages like improved range and faster transfer speeds, this new standard brings Dual Audio, a feature that lets you connect and use two pairs of Bluetooth headphones simultaneously.
