Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are said to come with the same widescreen, 18:9 aspect ratio as LG’s G6, allowing for improved side–by–side app viewing.
The S8 will come with a 5.8–inch display and the S8+ with a 6.2–inch effort. Both feature a 2960 x 1440 resolution.
A fingerprint scanner round the back, which doubles as the home button, will be complimented by a long–mooted iris scanner and facial recognition, providing enhanced security.
Under the hood, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are due to feature 2.5Ghz octacore processors, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and micro SD expansion support up to 256GB.
The 12-megapixel camera from last year’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge is retained, although its seen its lens given a boost thanks to wide f1.7 aperture.
There’s also laser autofocus, optical image stabilisation and 4K video skills.
The front–facing camera has been given a much–needed increase to eight megapixels.
In all, it seems that Samsung’s new flagship phones will be every inch a hit.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be unveiled on 29th March at events in London and New York.
