Samsung Galaxy S8+ Officially Launched – Full Specifications, Pricing, Availability & Offers



The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are now made the official at the Galaxy Unpacked event. Though the design and specifications of the devices are already leaked, today, we got the official confirmation along with the pricing and availability of the device. Since both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ comes with edge screen, there is no Galaxy S8 Edge this year. As the name suggests, the Galaxy S8+ is bigger device among the two, but almost shares same internals as on Galaxy S8. It comes in Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Arctic Silver, Coral Blue, and Maple Gold color options.

The device runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It sports a dual edge 6.2-inch Infinity display with Quad HD+ resolution (2960 x 1440 pixels) offering a pixel density of 529ppi. On the other hand, the 5.8-inch display on the Galaxy S8 comes with a pixel density of 570ppi. It comes powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC or the in-house Exynos 8995 SoC. Both these processors are manufactured using 10nm FinFET process and come with different GPU’s. It includes 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of expandable storage.

On the rear, there is a 12MP dual pixel camera with OIS and dual tone LED flash. There is also an 8MP autofocus camera with the f/1.7 aperture on the front for selfies. The Galaxy S8+ measures 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm while the Galaxy S8 with slightly smaller display comes measures 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0 mm. By weighing 173 grams, the Galaxy S8+ might not feel that heavy considering its 6.2-inch display. With the bigger form factor, the Galaxy S8+ also accommodates a bigger 3,500mAh battery with fast charging support through wired and wireless chargers.

The device lacks any hardware buttons on the front, but with a virtual button on the bottom with force touch technology. The fingerprint sensor and the heart rate sensor can be found the either side of the primary camera. It also supports Samsung Pay using the NFC and MST technologies. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, MU-MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0, ANT+, NFC, GPS, Galileo, Glonass, and USB Type-C. There is also an Iris sensor to further enhance the security on this device, the last year’s Galaxy Note 7 is the first Samsung smartphone to feature it.

Other sensors on this device include Accelerometer, Barometer, Gyro Sensor, Geomagnetic Sensor, Hall Sensor, Proximity Sensor, RGB Light Sensor, and Pressure Sensor. The Galaxy S8+ is also water and dust resistant, thanks to the IP68 certification. With the Samsung Connected app, the Galaxy S8+ can control all the connected products from Samsung and its partners. The Bixby virtual assistant is also integrated into the OS. Samsung also unveiled Dex dock to offer PC-like experience after connecting it to Monitor, Keyboard, and a Mouse.
