The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have now been unveiled and are available for purchase around the globe. They both pack the very latest in features and hardware and come in a wide variety of colours for you to choose from!
Both the S8 and the S8+ both have a highly impressive list of specifications. The are pretty much identical with the exception of their screen size. The Galaxy S8 has a 5.8″ screen, where as the S8+ has a 6.2″ screen. Both phones run at a screen resolution of 2960×1440 pixels (Quad HD+) and have Super AMOLED LCD screens. However, the S8+ is not physically much larger as Samsung have removed the physical home button from these phones and made the screen bezels super thin. This results in a larger screen area, but a similar size phone compared to the Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge.
Both phones have 4GB of DDR4 memory, an 8-core CPU and 64GB of storage space, which can be further expanded with a 256MB MicroSD card (Apple should take note of this!). On the software side, you get the latest version of Android Nougat (7.0).
Do you think you’ll upgrade to the new Samsung Galaxy S8? At this time of writing, I am actually quite happy to keep using my Galaxy S7 as it’s plenty fast enough, plus I haven’t got to the end of my contract yet and don’t want to be hit with lots of expensive cancellation fees!
