Samsung is just more than a month away from unveiling its much-awaited Galaxy S8 flagship. The leaks around the launch are about to reach its peak. The latest reports give us a peek for the bigger-sized S8 Plus model as well as its specs and features.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Packs A 6.2-inch Display

The list, which was shared by reliable leaker Evan Blass, doesn't tell us much new, but it confirms a lot of rumors we'd already heard, starting with the presence of a 6.2-inch screen (or 6.1 inches if you check at the rounded corners rather than counting the full rectangle). As for the display, it will be a QHD+ Super AMOLED. You'll find an iris scanner and an 8MP front-facing camera that will act as another mode of biometric authentication. Around the back, you'll find a 12MP Dual Pixel camera but that's not the same as a dual-lens one. Dual Pixel refers to an improved form of phase detection autofocus, debuted by Samsung on its Galaxy S7 range. The cameras might make the new one even better than its predecessor in terms of autofocus, image, video stabilization and pixel density.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus RAM, Battery, And Features

The new report from a source 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. Furthermore, the upcoming Samsung flagship will offer the 4GB (not 6GB ) RAM. Other reports claimed it'll sport 64GB of built-in storage, along with a microSD card slot. The Samsung S8 Plus also supports wireless charging and Samsung Pay, and it's 4G LTE capable, as everyone is expecting.  Furthermore, the Galaxy S8 Plus is also IP68 certified dust and water resistant, which is the same level of waterproofing as the Galaxy S7.
