Almost all the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus information leaks along with official images

Even though Samsung is trying everything it can to plug the Galaxy S8 leaks, more information is being revealed before the official unveiling of the smartphone. Official accessories made for the upcoming flagship smartphones were leaked yesterday along with their price tags. Now, we’re being presented with almost all the official images and features of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus.

Thanks to WinFuture, we now have images of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus in all the color variants that Samsung will offer. Moreover, the publication has revealed most of the features of the upcoming smartphones. Apparently, Samsung is offering the “best features of its Galaxy lineup” combined with “a groundbreaking design” to make consumers forget the whole Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will reportedly offer 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch curved Super AMOLED displays, respectively, with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels (18.5:9 aspect ratio, similar to the LG G6).

The camera on the smartphones will retain the 12-megapixel resolution (1.4µm pixel size), f/1.7 aperture, dual-pixel autofocus, OIS, and 4K video recording, but Samsung has reportedly included laser autofocus for more reliable focusing. The front-facing camera gets not only an increased resolution of 8 megapixels (with f/1.7 aperture) but also autofocus mechanism “to capture highly dynamic situations.” There appears to be an iris scanner for easy, quick, and reliable user identification and authentication.

Apart from an iris scanner, Samsung has also equipped its upcoming devices with a rear-facing fingerprint sensor which supports gestures to open and close apps. Similar to the Galaxy Note 7 (and more recently, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge), the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus would feature the Secure Folder service to store sensitive information, apps, and files. The devices are also said to be IP68-certified for resistance from dust and water (for 30 minutes and up to 1.5 meters). The report claims that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus sport stereo speakers as well as 3.5mm headphone jacks.

Coming to the internal hardware, the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus feature a 2.5GHz octa-core Exynos 8895 processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in some markets), 4GB RAM, 64GB of UFS 2.0 internal storage, and a microSD card slot (up to 256GB). The smartphones will reportedly feature dual-band gigabit Wi-Fi, LTE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and a USB Type-C port. The Galaxy S8 is said to be equipped with a 3000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S8 will reportedly feature a 3500 mAh battery. Both smartphones would feature fast wireless charging using a new convertible charger which was leaked yesterday.

Similar to the Apple iPhone 7 (and 7 Plus) and the HTC U Ultra, the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus would reportedly feature stereo speakers. The smartphones would be offered in Black, Blue, Gold, Orchid Gray, and Silver, and official accessories would be offered in matching colors. The official DeX Station with active cooling and full-sized ports would offer a Windows 10 Continuum-like mode. The Galaxy S8 will reportedly carry a price tag of €799, while the Galaxy S8 Plus will reportedly cost €899.

Samsung would offer a service program called “Samsung Guard S8” in some markets that lets buyers get their phone repaired within two hours. Official warranty extension would also be offered by Samsung in some markets. Also, Samsung will also reportedly offer one-time free replacement of the screen and a ‘Remote Support’ option. You should take this information with a pinch of salt, as nothing can be said for sure until the phone gets officially unveiled on March 29 in London and New York.

Am i the only one who is more curious about the looks of the device as opposed to say BT version or UFS version number? 😀 I can’t wait to see the gold model on real photos, these dark colors are miserable.

Hi' I'm Steph Curry and I blew a 3-1 lead lol

Annnndd….12MP. Yup, that’s it, bye bye Samsung. It was nice following that S6/S7 adventure with you but I can’t stand corporation losers wilfully taking the decision to make less earnings with shit products. Oh and I thought I was freed from Apple, but I guess iPhone 8 here I come (probably, if the AR rumours are true).

The camera is better than the S7. It’s a great camera I played with it today.

Aaaand.. another one that doesn’t know anything about cameras and megapixels 😉
It’s not always better to have more megapixels… read on it a bit before commenting.

Stereo speakers? From all the leaks we know the phones doesn’t have a speaker on the top, so it would have to be bottom speaker plus the ear piece…interesting!

Bluetooth 4.2?! Seriously!! For that price, I was expecting 5.0

Don’t worry. 5.0 is a software upgrade of Bluetooth 4.2.

Samsung Guard sounds good, here’s hoping it makes it to Europe. Good customer service is one of the key factors in keeping customers loyal to a brand. Say what you will about Apple but they know how to do customer service.

Not sure what Samsung Guard will cover. But in Germany you have Samsung’s “Customer Service Plaza (CSP)” in 9 cities. You just show up, get your device repaired instantly and take it again.
Two weeks ago I was there with may S7 Edge, they have replaced the broken display. In total it took less than 2 hours, but it was expensive: 320€.

Sometimes they’ve horrible partners to run the Customer Service Plaza. I was in December at the one in Dortmund to change the battery of my S6. They wanted 135€ for the replacement and said it can take several weeks because they don’t have it in stock. From the beginning when we stept into the place you could feel that they don’t really want to do any work. The atmosphere was more like “omg a new customer … I don’t want to”. So I walked out, bot an original battery for 35€ and replaced it myself. Even electronic markets like Saturn… Read more »

I also expect a face recognition as a replacement for fingerprint sensor. Face recognition would become the most used login method. After having activated it on my Surface, I have never use the fingerprint or the PIN again.

The battery life is very good. I would say above average. Our phone started at 53% when I received it and when we stopped almost 4hours later we was at 46% we didn’t run it hard with games and streaming.

There is no new ground breaking anything compared to Note 7. Hence fails the statement “to cover up for the Note 7 failure”.
16:9 was fine, though a bit too elongated compared to a more natural feeling squarish screens. Yet 18.5:9 is a farce. In a not too distant future, we may have stick shaped mobile devices.

WinFuture is not really the best source for reliable info on Samsung’s flagships, so just wait until next week.
With regard to the screen ratio: I think the new ratios are related to the upcoming VR features/plans.

I hope you are not serious, it is very obvious that those leaked information from Winfuture is real.

Peschiera

Well, steroe speakers doesn’t sound real to me at all.
But here is the point: to me, after reading the original post in German, it seems as if they just have put together information from different sites plus their own expectations.
That means most of the information would be real, but not all. And if something is not mentioned, it does not mean that it won’t be there.

The VR reason was first that came to my mind. But I am not so sure for that. That is, no official explanation yet. If so then that’s a very logical reason and I agree with that. Though as usage percentage, it won’t be used by most people even 1% of the whole time.

Peschiera
Peschiera

You are right, the usage percentage should be very low. But maybe Sammy expects an increase when releasing the new phones and the next Gear VR.

No phone will change history this year. But this phone is great. Hope you get to see it in person before you fully judge it.

One mystery still out there is will it have quick charge 2.0, 3.0 or 4.0?
