Samsung India Launches Galaxy S8 Plus Support Page

Samsung India recently launched what looks like a support page for the upcoming Galaxy S8 Plus. The page is dedicated to a device boasting the model number SM-G955FD, meaning it likely refers to a dual-SIM variant of the Galaxy S8 Plus whose model number is said to be SM-G955. For added context, the dual-SIM variants of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge were labeled as SM-G930FD and SM-G935FD, respectively. Seeing how those models were available exclusively in Southeast Asia, it isn't surprising that a support page for what seems to be a dual-SIM variant of the Galaxy S8 Plus has now been launched by Samsung India. It's unclear whether the support page was launched by a mistake given how Samsung's upcoming flagship duo likely won't be officially unveiled before late March. In any case, the page is now live and can be accessed by following the link below.

The Galaxy S8 Plus is rumored to ship with a 6.2-inch QHD display and a 3,500mAh battery. The device will likely sport the Exynos 8895 and the Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip in certain territories like the United States. Latest rumors indicate that the Seoul-based phone maker is looking to equip its upcoming pair of Android flagships with between 4GB and 6GB of RAM. Other than that, both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus are said to ship with an iris scanner, a USB Type-C port, and at least 64GB of internal storage. The devices will almost certainly run Android Nougat out of the box. The South Korean consumer electronics manufacturer also reportedly equipped the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus with Bixby, its latest digital assistant developed by Viv Labs, an AI startup acquired by Samsung last October. Finally, the firm's upcoming pair of flagships has long been rumored to feature an almost bezel-less design, and latest leaks confirm as much.

The company already said it won't be unveiling the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC), and recent reports suggest that both devices will instead be officially announced in late March before hitting the market in mid-April.
