Samsung is going to unveil the Galaxy S8 on March 29 at an event in New York and London, however, that’s not the only smartphone this South Korean company will unveil. Samsung is also expected to unveil the Galaxy S8+ which is larger than the Galaxy S8. While the specifications of the Galaxy S8+ have already leaked last week, it has popped up on Geekbench revealing (or should we say confirming ? ) some of its specifications.
The Galaxy S8+ that has appeared on Geekbench carries model number SM-G955U. It is powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC which is coupled with 4 GB RAM and Adreno 540 GPU. The tested device is running Android 7.0 Nougat, but, we expect it to be running Android 7.1.1 Nougat at the time of launch.
The Galaxy S8+ made a score of 1929 and 6084 points in single and multi-core tests of Geekbench respectively. While this model is running Snapdragon 835, it’s very likely that there will be another variant which will be powered Samsung’s Exynos chipset. As always, the Snapdragon variant might be restricted to the US market whereas other markets would get the Exynos variant. Well, this applies to the Galaxy S8 as well which is also expected to have the same chipset under the hood.
Going by the past leaks and rumors, the Galaxy S8+ will have design similar to that of the Galaxy S8 (pictured above), but will have a larger screen at 6.2-inch as opposed to the 5.8-inch on the Galaxy S8. However, both these devices are said to boast Super AMOLED display having Quad HD+ resolution.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to be unveiled on March 29, and we are pretty much sure that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S8+ as well the very same day. There’s still more than three weeks of time for the unveiling, hence, we expect more details to keep pouring over the Internet in the form of videos and images.
