Complete Galaxy S8 specs list exposed in new leak

Published Feb 24th, 2017 11:52AM EST

Earlier this week, a trustworthy source leaked the full Galaxy S8+ specs sheet. Evan Blass posted an image on Twitter that appears to contain the kind of specs you’d see on the box of the Galaxy S8+. Aside from processor type, which he confirmed in a different tweet, and battery size, which was mentioned in other leaks, the specs sheet included everything you might want to know about the upcoming Galaxy S8+ phablet.

Now, a second leak has emerged, and this time it covers the smaller Galaxy S8 instead of the phablet model.

Obtained by TechnoBuffalo, the image appears to confirm what we’ve been hearing all along: The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will feature the exact same specs when it comes to anything and everything that isn’t related to size.

The Galaxy S8 features a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with Quad HD+ resolution, or 5.6 inches if you take the rounded corners into account. The way screen size is presented in this leak is also an indication that both Galaxy S8 versions will have curved edges.

The phone will have 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in memory, microSD support, a 12-megapixel Dual Pixel camera, an 8-megapixel selfie camera, an iris scanner, wireless charging, earphones tuned by AKG, IP68 certification, Samsung Knox security, and Samsung Pay support.

Even though the leak doesn’t mention it, the brand new Galaxy S phone will also feature a next-generation mobile chip, either the Exynos 8895 or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, depending on the market. At this point, there’s probably nothing Samsung can surprise us with when it comes to Galaxy S8 specs. But we’ll have to wait more than a month for Samsung to officially announce the handset. Reports indicate that the Galaxy S8 series will be unveiled on March 29th in New York and will then be released on April 21st.
