It seems like Samsung may not release the Galaxy S8, instead announced the Galaxy S8 Plus. A recently leaked logo showing "Samsung Galaxy S+" is why we feel that the Samsung might skip the rumored Galaxy S8.  A known mobile reporter, Evan Blass, posted on his Twitter the picture of the Galaxy S8 Plus' logo, though, there's still a doubt about its certainty as Samsung is yet to issue an official statement.

Blass posted a new tweet confirming the display sizes for the upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone. He mentioned that the Galaxy S8 version will start at 5.8-inches, while the bigger version called the Galaxy S8+ will sport a 6.2-inch display. Both will have Super AMOLED display, which is not surprising given that Samsung is the biggest maker of AMOLED displays, and has been using these in its flagship smartphones for some time.

The new report came out of South Korea and said that Samsung has provided its battery suppliers with an updated roadmap which includes details of battery capacity. This has led to rumors that the Galaxy S8 Plus will use the 3,600 mAh found in the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. In addition, according to a source, the Galaxy S8 Plus will feature a 12-MP rear camera and an 8-MP front cam. Samsung is believed to feature its Dual Pixel technology in the rear cam and might make the new one even better than its predecessor in terms of autofocus, image, video stabilization and pixel density. The front camera will be combined with an Iris Recognition sensor and will act as another mode of biometric authentication. Moreover, the upcoming Samsung flagship will not have the 4GB RAM version, instead, will offer the 6GB variant built-in storage straight-away. Other reports claimed it'll sport a 128GB memory unit.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date

The Galaxy S8 is anticipated for release at the MWC 2017. Considering the previous Galaxy S Series launches over the past three years. Nonetheless, the Galaxy S8 will be announced on a separate event in New York on March 29.
