Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus smartphones are reportedly being tested in China



Samsung is all set to launch it’s new flagship smartphone(s) for the year 2017 the Galaxy S8. We don’t have an official confirmation from the company. However, it looks like the launch will happen next month in Barcelona just like every year. We already have a lot of rumors and speculations surrounding this smartphone and judging by all that, this is indeed shaping up to be one of the best smartphones from Samsung. While we wait for the smartphone to launch officially, we keep getting more and more new info about this smartphone day-after-day.

According to the new reports, the south Korean Smartphone Giant is already testing two variants of the S8 smartphone. It has been reported that two variants i.e the S8 as well as the S8 Plus are being tested in China. Now the name S8 Plus might not be really familiar since we have been getting Edge variants from the company. However, since both the variants will be having an edge display this year, the ‘Plus’ seems more suitable than the ‘Edge’ tag that we had last year as well. So if everything goes right as planned, we might be getting the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus this year as the Samsung’s flagship devices for 2017. Interestingly, it has also been reported that not just the Chinese variant but also the international variant is being tested in China.

Apparently, the Chinese variant of the smartphone carries the software build numbers G9500ZCU0APLF for the Galaxy S8 and G9550ZCU0APLF for the Galaxy S8 Plus. While these are the numbers for Chines variants, the international variants come with software versions G950FXXU0APLH for the Galaxy S8 and G955FXXU0APLH for the Galaxy S8 Plus. Not much info is available apart from this, but t has been reported that both the variants will be running the Qualcomm’s latest snapdragon 835 SoC out of the box. Now that the smartphones being tested, it can be expected that they could be launched next month as planned earlier. As of now, all we can do is sit back and wait for the official announcement from the company. We hope both the devices do well in the market since people surely don’t want another disappointment from Samsung after the Note 7.

With that said, if you want to know more about these devices, then we suggest you stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more details on this as we will update once we have more info regarding the same. Meanwhile, you can check out the Samsung Galaxy A series of smartphones that the company made official yesterday for 2017.
