Larger Galaxy S8 logo appears, confirming phone moniker

It was said some weeks ago that Samsung would release two models of the Galaxy S8: a 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and a 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus, designed to appease Galaxy Note 7 users who were reluctant to give up the most perfect smartphone yet to grace the market and crave larger screens – which explains why the Galaxy S8 Plus will feature the widest display the S series has ever seen (of course, the Galaxy Mega series once boasted of the widest screens in the “Galaxy”).

Well, we now have a logo as evidence that the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 will bear the moniker “Galaxy S8+.” As if you couldn’t have guessed it, famous leakster Evan Blass, a.k.a. @evleaks, is back with the logo of the larger Galaxy S8. The logo tells us that Samsung is dropping the “Edge” from its phone monikers this year, which fits in line with what we’ve heard about the Korean giant living on the edge with its new dual-display design and functionality and the below-expected sales of the flat-paneled Galaxy S7. The moniker itself, containing the “+” symbol, has been used with the Galaxy S6 edge+ model announced on the same day in 2015 as the Galaxy Note 5.

Apart from its 6.2-inch screen differentiation from its smaller-screened sibling, the Galaxy S8+ is rumored to feature a higher storage configuration out of the box (128GB as opposed to 64GB of storage for the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8). Both handsets will feature the temporary Samsung-exclusive Snapdragon 835, along with a front camera with autofocus, new AI Bixby based on S-Voice, an iris scanner, and perhaps include an S Pen accessory. This will mark the very first time that Samsung has utilized only dual-curved displays in its high-end Galaxy S series.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ could be unveiled as early as March 29th, though a broader estimate places the launch date as late as April 15th.

I can’t wait to see his new Galaxy S8 I hope the battery is good and should not have no problems but the Note 7 it was doomed from the beginning when they say they was going to scrap the Note 6 and go to Note 7 that’s when the problem started with the phones so if they come out with a Note 8 what is the odds of that having problems we will see when the note 8 come out

I really hope they will release the exynos version internationally like the S7…
The Snapdragon always lagged behind the Exynos.

Speaking of Exynos, we haven’t had leaks about the next gen Exynos in a while now (if I’m wrong, can someone give me a link). What are the chances Samsung will go full SnapDragon this year?

I hope they will do same as with the S7 and release Exynos version internationally, otherwise i will import the next flagship. I will not pay 800euro+ for a device that stutters, lags and becomes way too hot because of Snapdragon.

Samsung helped make the SnapDragon 835, I will be very surprised if they do go for an Exynos variant as well. No doubt creating so many variations of the device is costly, they might just stick with SnapDragon this time round

Of course, Exynos is always best, faster and with better energy efficiency.

It wouldn’t make sense to make the note 8 if they’re to release S pen as an accessory to Galaxy S8.

Note 8, because Samsung decided last year that they want to match Note number with that in the S series. So, S8 and Note 8. Why would they call it Note 7 anyway? I’m sure it would negatively impact on the sales of that device if it was called Note 7 (users would think negatively).
