We all know that Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be launched on March 29, but the details of the exact availability have remained elusive, at least until now.
According to a new leak coming from the wild, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be open for preorders as from April 10, about 10 days after they are made official at multiple events to be held in New York and London, among other cities. This makes some sense, especially since previous rumors about the possible release of the S8 have claimed that it will happen on April 21, another 10 days after the company starts taking preorders for the flagships.
Ever since Samsung showed off the Galaxy S8 in a video teaser at the MWC 2017, lots of images and rendered press leaks have been doing rounds, but none of them has come close to release date details like the latest one.
In terms of specs, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will share a bunch of specs and features, but like previous models, the two will largely be differentiated by their screen sizes and battery capacities. Where the former will ship with a 5.8-inch AMOLED panel, the latter will debut a much bigger 6.2-inch AMOLED panel. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 and Samsung’s Exynos 9 series will be running the show alongside 4GB RAM and at least 64GB of expandable storage.
There’s talk of an incoming Bixby Assistant that will get a dedicated button on phone, just below the volume rockers on the left-hand side. Unlike last year, both phones will sport a dual-edge screen, but this time around, the fingerprint scanner will be relocated to the back of the phones, just beside the main camera. As for the home and navigation buttons, they should find a new home on the screen.
Since the launch is a few weeks away, we should keep on getting more details about both Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the coming days. Keep following and we’ll keep you updated!
