I can’t overstate how gorgeous the S8 and S8 Plus are. The former packs one of Samsung’s beautiful 5.8-inch “infinity displays” — that’s a Super AMOLED screen that wraps around the phone’s curved front to the point where it almost touches the metal band running around the device. As the name implies, the S8 Plus has a larger display; we’re talking 6.2 inches from one diagonal corner to another. Both run at what Samsung calls Quad HD+ resolution, otherwise known as 2,960 x 1,440, since these screens are longer than normal.
As you might have already known, the US Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will feature one of Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipsets, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Versions available elsewhere will have one of Samsung’s octa-core Exynos chips in lieu of Qualcomm’s stuff, which will be a bummer for some people and old news for others. Both devices also have 12-megapixel, dualpixel rear cameras with an f/1.7 aperture, which, yes, are very similar to last year’s S7 cameras. That said, Samsung has apparently changed the way photos are processed, which should make for slightly better colors and clarity throughout.
