No fear, because, as is often the case, it seems that we will arrive at the appointment next Wednesday with microscopic new to discover, thanks to new details emerged on the net in new hours.
We start with the basic technical characteristics; they see a SoC Exynos 8895 octa-core, divided into two clusters, one from 2.5 GHz high power core 4 and a second, 1.7 GHz quad core, always. The memories are GB regarding the RAM, while the inner amounts to 64 GB is expandable. The two devices differ in the size of the display, from 5.8 “on a standard variant and 6.2” on that Plus, while the resolution of 2960×1440 pixels, WQHD +, is common to both smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus
Interesting news regarding the photographic sector which, while not changing the resolution of the main module, this year from 12 Megapixels, presents the usual 1.4-micron pixels by focal aperture f/1.7. Despite not being mentioned, you may also see the optical image stabilizer. The front camera, on the other hand, is a unit of 8 Megapixels, also equipped with Aperture f/1.7, provided for the first time with an autofocus system. At his side, we find the sensors dedicated to Iris recognition, potentially very quickly and reliably. Access to smartphones, as well as via IRIS scans, is also allowed by the fingerprint sensor, replaced on the back of the smartphone because of the new design was chosen. The latter will be boosted by the presence of new gesture which, in addition to the unblocking, provide access to apps and other features.
The two new top of the line keep certifying IP68 introduced on current S7 and aspects almost unchanged, we also find the battery capacity. The standard Variant should be equipped with a 3000 mAh, while the Plus should have a 3500 mAh battery, slightly lower than 3600 mAh of S7 Edge. In any case, the energy improvements introduced by the new SoC, which should be produced with 10 nm fabrication process, and new displays, should give an autonomy at least equal to that of their predecessors. Everything will be enclosed within a device often 8 mm and weighing 151 grams, at least as far as Galaxy S8. To find out the details of Plus we should wait until Wednesday.

Finally, we find a broad range of radio, Bluetooth, NFC, LTE modem consists of 4.2 up to 450 Mbps, Wi-Fi and NFC. There are also two stereo speakers, probably using the earbud as the second speaker, USB port Type-C, which will allow the link to interesting accessories like dock DeX Station, and Android 7.0 Nougat, with the new interface Grace UX. Among the additional services, it seems Samsung has not provided a new form of warranty call Guard S8, which includes a free repair of the display and a channel priority assistance, although these details, including markets where it is available, will be listed during the official presentation.
