Samsung to launch Galaxy S8 On March 29 – Information Leaked Ahead Of Launch


It’s just a few days when the logo of Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus was leaked.  And already another leak has come to offer us some more details on the upcoming devices. Samsung’s support page for its upcoming handset Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus has gone live in India well ahead of its launch date March 29th. However, the leak does not offer huge details apart from the model number. As per the leak, it is confirmed that the new flagship device would be dual SIM phablet and it will have the SM-G955FD model number. No other details apart from this are being gained by the leak.

Samsung will not unveil their upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 variants in the MWC. Rather, they have planned for a special event on March 29th in New York to launch Galaxy S8.

Samsung is said to bring their latest edition in two variants, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. They will have 5.8 inches and 6.2-inch display size respectively. The bigger one is expected to replace the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge device which will be a 6.2-inch phablet. The leaked logo by popular leaker Even Blass also confirm that both the variants will have the curved display.

While various leaks are gathering some of the features and specifications of Samsung Galaxy S8, the most interesting one is the Voice assistant Bixby. The tech giant is said to incorporate this feature in both the variants. This feature will work very similar to that of the Apple Siri and Google assistant. Bixby will be powered by Samsung’s very own S-Voice. It will be made to answer user’s voiced question interestingly. It is also expected that a hardware button will be added for this purpose.

Coming to the internal specifications, Samsung is said to incorporate Exynos 8895 and Snapdragon 835 processor in the two sets. RAM will be probably 4GB while it may also come with a 6GB variant. The internal storage is expected to be 64GB or 128 GB. Both the device Samsung Galaxy S8 and its larger variant Galaxy S8 Plus will have QHD Super AMOLED display. As far as the camera is concerned, leaks suggested that Samsung will retain the same 12 MP rear camera along with dual pixel technology. Samsung Galaxy S8 will be powered by 3000 mAh battery while it will extend to 3500 mAh for the S8 Plus.

The device will be dust and water resistant while a microSD card slot will be there to expand the memory. The fingerprint scanner will be there for sure located at the rear side. With this, it is heard that Samsung will also add iris scanner in Galaxy S8 Plus to ensure added security.

Again, those who are very much fond of the Apple’s 3D touch facility can expect something on the same line. Because Samsung is said to have an answer for that as well. So, Samsung has many more things in store for us, and with the release date inching closer we are slowly getting to know some of them.
