They say when it rains, it pours, and right now it is most certainly pouring for Samsung. The company held a big press conference this week at Mobile World Congress, but the only new products unveiled on stage in Barcelona were three new tablets. If we’re all being honest, no one cares at all about new Samsung tablets — even if they are pretty great tablets — with the company’s next-generation Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ looming on the horizon.
Galaxy S8 leaks have been flowing non-stop for weeks now, and BGR capped it off with an exclusive first look at a device we have confirmed to be an authentic Galaxy S8. Hot on the heals of that post, we’re back to show you two freshly leaked videos that seemingly show the larger of Samsung’s two upcoming new smartphones, the Galaxy S8+.
In our earlier coverage on Wednesday, we showed you Samsung’s unreleased Galaxy S8 Android flagship and ran through just about everything you could possibly want to know about the phone’s specs. Like the smaller S8 model, the Galaxy S8+ will be powered by either a Snapdragon 835 processor or a comparable Exynos model from Samsung. It’ll also feature 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 12-megapixel Dual Pixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, IP68 water and dust resistance, Android 7 Nougat, wireless charging support and more.
Separating the two models is the larger 6.2-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display compared to a 5.8-inch screen in the smaller phone, and a larger battery in the Galaxy S8+.
Reading is one thing but seeing is always more exciting, and it looks like yet another leak brings us a fresh look at Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8+. Two short videos were posted to Chinese microblogging site Weibo around the same time, and they supposedly show the Galaxy S8+. The videos are extremely brief at just a few seconds each, but that’s all it takes to give us a glimpse at Samsung’s next-generation flagship phablet.
Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ during an Unpacked event in New York on March 29th, and the phones are both expected to be released on April 21st. In the meantime, the videos originally sourced from Weibo can be seen below.
