Rumor Roundup: Samsung Galaxy S8 Display, AuTuTu, Product Box And Much More

Just when Samsung is gearing up to launch Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones, the specifications have appeared on a popular benchmarking site AnTuTu. Meanwhile, Ice Universe aka @UniverseIce took to Twitter and shared an image of the rumored Galaxy S8 alongside Galaxy S7 edge.

The image clearly showcases the difference between the display sizes of Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S8 Plus. Interestingly, the same wallpaper has been posted on both the handsets. If you carefully inspect the images, you will be able to see the bezel-less display included with the Galaxy S8 Plus handset.

The highlight of the upcoming Galaxy S8 is its ability to change the display resolution. Till now, we have to satisfy with the default resolution provided with each handset. With Galaxy S8, you can easily modify the resolution by dragging the sliders. If the leaked image turns out to be true, you wil be able to modify the resolution in three different ways such as HD+, FHD+ and WQHD+.

According to AuTuTu, the model number SM-G950F signifies the Galaxy S8 integrated with Exynos 8895 processor that will be shipped out outside the United States. However, the model G950U denotes an unlocked phone with Snapdragon 835 processor expected to be available in the US via AT&T and Verizon.

The AuTuTu listing also reveals the fact that the handset will ship with an 8MP front-facing snapper when compared to 5MP in the previous counterpart. You can expect the addition of autofocus selfies, beautify effects and much more. Samsung will also likely release a 64GB storage variant as default instead of 32GB.

Meanwhile, the same Twitter user has also shared the front and rear side of the product boxes affixed with S8+.


Moreover, he also revealed the Midnight Black color variant of the Samsung Galaxy S8 with a flower on the front display. We can also clearly spot the rear cameras and LED Flash.

In addition to the above rumors, you can also expect the launch of Samsung Galaxy S8+ in Orchid Grey color variant.

Recently, Holly Brockwell‏ who is a well-known Journalist based in the UK shared an image of both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in blue color.

As you can see, Samsung is planning for a big launch event after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. You can expect the addition of Bixby digital assistant, which will be able to perform a wide range of functions. We will keep track of the launch and provide updates.
