According to Evan Blass, the Galaxy S8+ will have a massive 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution (3200x1800), which is a nice upgrade from the QHD (2560x1440) resolution displays found on previous generation Samsung flagships. Other specs aren’t too surprising given what we’ve learned about the phone over the past few months.
The smartphone will feature a 12MP dual pixel rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera, iris scanner (which was cribbed from the doomed Galaxy Note 7), 64GB of internal storage, microSD slot, 4GB of RAM, wireless charging support, and IP68 dust/water resistance.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will also be the first smartphones to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor (at least in certain markets like the United States). It’s also quite possible that home market models will ship with Samsung’s new Exynos 8895, which is also built on a 10nm FinFET process.
Another leak earlier this week gave us our first look at the DeX (Desktop Expansion) dock that will allow the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ to function as a quasi-desktop when hooked up to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. If you’ve seen Microsoft Continuum in action with Windows 10 Mobile, then you know sort of what to expect here.
It’s been reported that Samsung might give us a quick glimpse at the Galaxy S8 family next week at MWC 2017, with an official unveil on March 29th. Retail availability is reportedly scheduled for April 21st.
