Samsung has finally revealed it’s new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ with the specs that every customer needs. Both the devices have very tiny bezels as leaked in the rumors in the past. Leaving the rumors behind we have got the original devices here.

Talking about Samsung Galaxy S8 – it packs 5.8inch AMOLED with a resolution of 2960×1440 at 570 ppi. Both the devices have display ration of extra wide aspect ratio of 18.5:9. Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or the Samsung Exynos 8895. There’s a 4GB RAM with UFS 2.1 64GB of internal Storage. You can expand the storage upto 256GB with microSD card.

There’s a new USB-C port on the bottom of the device.  The Galaxy S8 camera uses the 12MP Dual Pixel sensor from the S7 but with improved software – it captures multiple exposures to raise image quality (sounds a lot like Google’s HDR+). The selfie cam did get a hardware upgrade, it now has an 8MP sensor and autofocus (with clever face detection).

The users will get 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage. In some parts like China and Korea users will get 6GB/128GB instead. The Galaxy S8 gets a 3,000mAh battery, the bigger Galaxy S8+ comes with a 3,500mAh pack.

The display is packed with Gorilla Glass 5. BOth the devices are going to be available in Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Arctic Silver, Coral Blue and Maple Gold.

    16M
  • Pixel Density Pixel Density (PPI) is refers to the concentration of pixels on a particular display, measured in pixels per inch (ppi). Pixel density is calculated by dividing the diagonal pixel resolution of a display by its diagonal size, higher pixel density better display quality.
    ~570 ppi
  • Display Protection Display Protection => Gorilla Glass is a special alkali-aluminosilicate glass shield with exceptional damage resistance that helps protect mobile displays from scratches, drops, and bumps of everyday use, It is always better to go for a smartphone with Gorilla Glass for that added protection and peace of mind.
    Corning Gorilla Glass 5
  • Features
    - 3D Touch (home button only)
    - Always-on display

Hardware

  • Chipset Chipset is a group of integrated circuits designed to perform one or a more dedicated functions, often with real time computing constraints, Popular smartphones are equipped with more advanced embedded chipsets that can do many different tasks depending on their programming.
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
  • CPU CPU (Central Processing Unit) mostly known as processors, CPU processes instructions in order to carry out certain functions that make your device operate properly. Processors are often described as the brain of computers, smartphones and tablets, Smartphones and tablets rely on processors to carry out their every task, Processors are an incredibly important factor in selecting any type of computing device, including your smartphone.
    Octa-core (4x2.35 GHz Kryo & 4x1.9 GHz Kryo)
  • GPU GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a single-chip processor designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display, This includes things such as lighting effects, object transformations, and 3D motion.
    Adreno 540
  • RAM (Memory) RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of computer memory that can be accessed randomly, any byte of memory can be accessed without touching the preceding bytes that allows information to be stored and accessed quickly from random locations. RAM is the most common type of memory found in computer systems, smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices.
    4GB
  • Internal Storage Internal Storage is a data storage space (flash memory) mostly used in smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices where operating system, apps, music, photos, videos, files and other user data Is stored.
    64GB
  • Card Slot Memory Card Slot is a special slot for inserting a memory card. Memory cards allow you to expand the phone's built-in memory, A memory card (sometimes called a flash memory card or a storage card) is a small storage medium used to store data such as text, pictures, audio, and video, for use on small, portable or remote computing devices such as mobile phones, mp3 players, digital cameras.
    MicroSD up to 256 GB
  • Sensors Sensors are electronic components that detects and responds to some type of input from the physical environment. The specific input could be light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure and location, The output is generally a signal that is converted to use in computing systems, a location sensor, such as a GPS receiver is able to detect current location of your electronic device.
