The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus are soon to be unveiled to the world, but that doesn’t stop the trickling in of little details. Up until now we have seen a barrage of leaks and video that preview the physical design of the latest flagship device. Today the upcoming smartphone has been spotted on the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) listing.
The FCC filing reveals Samsung Galaxy S8 device to be listed in three versions with model number SM- G950U, SM-G950U1 and SM-G950. The Galaxy S8+ meanwhile is listed with model numbers- SM-G955U, Sm-G955U1 and SM-G955W. Interestingly, the new Galaxy S8 series will support wireless charging as per the FCC filing. The smartphones are said to support CDMA, GSM and LTE bands as well.
Separately, a report from The Korean Economic Daily has claimed that Samsung’s upcoming smartphones will feature facial recognition along with iris biometric technology. Leak reports also suggest that flagship Galaxy S8 will retail at €799 (roughly Rs. 56,500) and the big variant Galaxy S8+ will be priced at €899(around Rs. 63,600). If reports are to be believed then the new Galaxy series will be more expensive in comparison to its predecessor.
Rumours earlier have suggested that the high-end smartphones will feature a curve-edged nearly bezel less display. Samsung Galaxy will reportedly sport a 5.2-inch display with no home button and finger print sensor on the back panel. The Galaxy S8+ meanwhile is tipped to feature a 6.2-inch QUAD HD+ Super AMOLED display. Both the devices will be powered by Snapdragon 835 processor or company own’s system-on-chip Exynos 8895. The smartphones are also said to come with Samsung new digital voice assistant.
The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event is scheduled on March 29 in New York where the South Korean tech giant is expected to make a public announcement of the new Galaxy S8 series.
