    Over the past several weeks we have seen leak after endless leak regarding the design of the S8 and S8 Plus. We have also heard rumor after rumor about the specs for these devices. Today we received a small gift from epic leaker Evan Blass. It looks like their won't be any "Edge" variant as both devices will have dual curved edge displays. Their will be no flat display variant. These phones are nearly identical in their specs minus the Display size and the battery size.

    Galaxy S8 Specs:
    -4G LTE capable
    -5.8" full rectangle/ 5.6" rounded corners Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Display
    -12MP Dual Pixel Main Camera
    -8MP front facing camera
    -IP68 Dust and Water resistance
    -Iris Scanner
    -Secured by Samsung Knox
    --64GB Memory with support for External microSD Card
    -4GB
    -Samsung Pay
    -Wireless Charging
    -Android Operating System
    -Earphones tuned by AKG

    Galaxy S8 Plus Specs:
    -4G LTE capable
    -6.2" full rectangle/ 6.1" rounded corners Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Display
    -12MP Dual Pixel Main Camera
    -8MP front facing camera
    -IP68 Dust and Water resistance
    -Iris Scanner
    -Secured by Samsung Knox
    --64GB Memory with support for External microSD Card
    -4GB
    -Samsung Pay
    -Wireless Charging
    -Android Operating System
    -Earphones tuned by AKG

    The batteries are expected to be 3,000mAh for the S8 and 3,500mAh for the S8 Plus. These battery sizes may seem a bit underwhelming, but the smaller batteries are in response to Samsung's findings that too large of a battery in too small of a package was the main culprit of the Note 7 fires. Do these specs entice you? Will these devices be worth the upgrade?

    Looking great. Only thing is why do they always go the way of Apple and skimp on the memory and storage just so they can increase it next iteration for more money. Memory is not that expensive when doing it in bulk and plus their international units always seem to be double what they sell in America.

    So what changed from last year's model besides smaller battery and larger storage? I see no reason to upgrade if you have s7 or s7 edge.

    I'm pretty sure that this will be a bezel-less device Xeene. 6.2 at full rectangle would leave no room for a home button unless they stretched it out.
    However, I will say, that they could fix the battery problem by not making phones that are waffer thin. Everyone's phone ends up in an otter box any way. Just make the phone that thick and durable from the get go. Plenty of room for a battery and storage after that.

    No Home button? Back fingerprint scanner, iris scanner.... little to no bezel.

    seems like plenty enough for me.

    I HAVE NEVER and WILL NEVER use a case that big. I use TPU cases and sometimes no case at all. I would hate it if every phone started being ungainly and stupidly large just because people "might" use an otter box.

    These all seem like very trivial reasons to upgrade a very expensive device. Other than the Iris Scanner, the S7 has all of these capabilities, just implemented in a different way. It already has a finger scanner, and anything the onscreen nav buttons can do can be done with the physical buttons on the s7 :shrug:.

    4GB ram is disappointing but an iris scanner and AKG tuned earphones (whatever that means) is a pretty neat.

    I will also be waiting for the Note 8. I will also be one of the first to purchase it as well. If there is another issue, I know I can get some more free stuff haha.

    I went from 4gb ram down to 3gb ram and can't tell a damn difference.

    Looks good, seems like more of an "s" upgrade that apple would do (not complaining). I'll have to compare this to the G6 and decide !
