Another day, another leak.
Samsung is having a heyday with all the news coming from all directions regarding its upcoming flagship smartphone - the Samsung Galaxy S8.
This time, GSM Arena shared that it has received more information from a particular case manufacturer regarding the exact measurements of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
Galaxy S8 Dimensions
According to the anonymous tipster, the Galaxy S8 will measure 140.14 x 72.20 x 7.30mm. As compared with the Galaxy S7, the S8 will be wider but shorter and thinner. Based on the leaked dimensions, the Galaxy S8 will be almost as small as the S7 but will have a larger screen than the S7 Edge.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, meanwhile, will measure 152.38 x 78.51 x 7.94mm. Again, when compared to the current Samsung flagship, the S7 Edge, the Galaxy S8 Plus will be taller and have a wider screen. GSM Arena estimated the screen size to be within the vicinity of 6.3 inches.
The case maker in question is the same one that sent GSM Arena the 3D renders of the Galaxy S8 which the site reported on last Jan. 13. The renders showed the Galaxy S8 in three different angles.
With the way things are going, Samsung may be better off not showing their devices to case makers at all. Truth be told, however, the publicity that the readers are getting is good for the Korean tech giant as it helps build the hype for the Galaxy S8. The problem will be if the flagship phone does not live up to the hype.
Price and Release Date
PC Advisor expects the Samsung Galaxy S8 to be released on Feb. 26 with Apr. 18 as the targeted sale date. These dates coincide with other rumors saying the Galaxy S8 will be unveiled at the World Mobile Congress which will be held in Barcelona, Spain from Feb. 27 to Mar. 2.
PC Advisor also puts the price of the Galaxy S8 at 599 pounds which is roughly equivalent to 740 US dollars.
