Two new Galaxy S8 images just surfaced, and they’re comparing Samsung’s upcoming flagships with some other high-end offerings out there. In case you’re interested in seeing how large are the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, take a look at the gallery down below. The first image let you take a look at the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus next to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. As you can see, these two upcoming flagships are quite compact, mainly thanks to a high screen-to-body ratio. The Galaxy S8 is considerably smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, despite the fact it has a considerably larger display. The iPhone 7 Plus features a 5.5-inch panel, while the Galaxy S8 is coming with a 5.8-inch display. The Galaxy S8 Plus, on the other hand, is said to sport a 6.2-inch display, and it’s about the same size as the iPhone 7 Plus, it’s even noticeably narrower than Apple’s flagship.
Now, the second image in the gallery down below puts the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus next to the Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S8 is more compact than the Galaxy Note 7, despite the fact it has a larger display, that applies to both its length and width. The Galaxy S8 Plus, on the other hand, is only a bit taller than the Galaxy Note 7, and the two phones are equally wide. That’s The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S6 are both smaller than the Galaxy S8, but not by much, which is quite surprising considering that those two phones sport a 5.1-inch display, while the Galaxy S8 comes with a 5.8-inch panel. It’s also worth noting that the Galaxy S8 is narrower than the Galaxy S7. According to the source, the Galaxy S8 will be 148.90mm tall and 68mm wide, while the Galaxy S8 Plus stands at 159mm in length, and is 74mm wide. It seems like Samsung really managed to trim down those bezels, and thanks to that, and not including the physical home key, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be quite compact.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be announced on March 29, that is the date of Samsung’s Unpacked event which has been confirmed by the company during MWC 17. The two phones will be made out of metal and glass, both of them will sport curved displays, and Samsung is ditching the physical home key. Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the two phones, and we’ll likely see two SoC variants of these two phones out there. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835 SoC in some areas (like the US, for example), while Samsung’s Exynos 8895 SoC will be included in the two devices in most other regions.
