Samsung Galaxy has introduced Galaxy S8 and S8+ to the world and the new devices will start shipping from April 21, 2017. Samsung has not announced the date for the India arrival of the phones but looking at the trend Samsung might launch the device in India closer to the shipping date that was announced at the event. As seen in the past . Samsung has launched two devices. Let’s take a look at what’s the difference between the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.
Here’s how the new two models differs
Screen size :
Let’s start with the most obvious difference: The Galaxy S8 and S8+ feature very different screen sizes. In the Galaxy S8’s case, that’s a 5.8-inch display, while the S8+ features a seemingly endless 6.2-inch display.
Size and weight :
You want a bigger screen, you’re going to need a bigger phone to house it. So it’s no surprise that the Galaxy S8+ is the larger of the two models.
The S8+ is 6.3 x 2.9 x 0.3 inches and tips the scales at 6.1 ounces. In contrast, the more slender S8 measures 5.9 x 2.7 x 0.3 inches, with a weight of 5.5 ounces. Because the widths of the new phones are more or less unchanged from the Galaxy S7 lineup, even with the larger screens, the S8 and S8+ should be easy to hold with one hand.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ both feature what Samsung is calling, an infinity display. This is basically a double-edged screen on the device. The S8 features a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ display with 2960×1440 resolution and 570ppi of pixel density. The S8+ will sport a bigger 6.2-inch Quad HD+ display with 2960×1440 resolution and 529ppi of pixel density. The devices will get Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on both front and the back.
Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will sport a Dual Pixel 12MP with OIS and F1.7 aperture rear camera and the front camera will be an 8MP sensor with auto-focus and F1.7 aperture.
Both the devices will sport fast Charging on wired and wireless devices. The wireless charging will be compatible with WPC and PMA. The Samsung Galaxy S8 will house a 3000mAh battery and the S8+ will come with a bigger 3500 mAh battery.
You didn’t think two differently sized phones would cost the same, did you? As you’d expect, the Galaxy S8+ is the more expensive of the two models, costing between $840 and $850 depending on which carrier you go with. The Galaxy S8 starts at $720 if you get it through Verizon, while AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are charging $750. You can get the S8 for $729 through MetroPCS, though that prepaid carrier won’t have the phone in stock until April 21; you can preorder your new Galaxy from the major carriers starting March 30.
What’s the Same ?
Processor , RAM , Storage :
You’ll find that Snapdragon 835 processor inside both the Galaxy S8 and S8+, which, if our previous Snapdragon 835 benchmarks are any indication, position both phones to set the pace for smartphone performance. The phones also come with the same amount of memory (4GB) and on-board storage (64GB), the latter of which you can expand via a microSD card.
The two phones ship with Android 7 Nougat and come with Google Assistant right out of the box..
Google Assistant isn’t the only voice-powered feature on the S8 and S8+. The two phones also include support for Bixby, Samsung’s in-house digital assistant for using voice commands to carry out tasks. Each phone also supports a dedicated button on the side for summoning Bixby.
So if you are willing to spend money like nothing , if you want a phone which last a bit longer time and if you want to have a amazing movie streaming experience go for S8+ otherwise S8 is not short in the race
