Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus: What’s Inside?
This year, the Samsung flagship phones have got major design revamp with over 80% screen to body ratio and narrower and taller display size. That is why both the phones are truly the ones to admire. Both the phones don’t differ much in the specs other than the display size and the battery capacity. The bigger S8 Plus has a 6.2inch display and 3500mAh battery whereas the smaller S8 has a 5.8inch display and 3000mAh battery. The rest of the specs of the phone are pretty similar with Exynos 8895 Octa Core CPU, 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. These IP68 dust and water resistant phones support fast charging and wireless fast charging as well.
The another highlight of the phone is the new AI Assistant from Samsung, the Bixby which even has a dedicated button to activate. But unfortunately, the Bixby is not fully functional as of now. This is probably the first Samsung phone without a physical home button and the buttons are now on-screen ones and the home button even senses the forced touch. The fingerprint sensor has now moved to the back of the device and rests alongside the primary camera unit. Optics wise, both the phones have 12MP unit on back and the 8MP unit on the front.
