The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of most anticipated releases of 2017. There are a lot of smartphones in the competitive market. More brands are coming out with their “revolutionary” new product, and some are real threats to the seasoned premium brands. One thing the high-end brands have is their good reputation and updated devices.

The device is being kept under wraps until its official announcement, but GSMArena has the first look into the next in the Galaxy series. Based on a casemaker’s 3D renders of the Galaxy 8, techies are given an inside look. Although it is not the official announcement from the company, the dimensions are revealed.

Bigger Is Better

The Samsung Galaxy S8 plus is way taller and wider than the current Samsung Galaxy S7. At 152.38 x 78.51 x 7.94 mm, the screen is surprisingly massive. It measures around 6.3 inches when viewed. However, the size may be slightly larger because of the curved sides.

Apart from being much wider than the Galaxy S7, the upcoming device has a different display as well. According to Phone Arena, it will reportedly have a 6.2-inch curved display. The Plus size is definitely close to phablet size thanks to its new dimensions.

Rumored Features

The leaked images also revealed more about the products physical design. Most of the Samsung phones come with a home button at the bottom of the device. The leaked images show that it is completely gone. There are also rumors that a fingerprint scanner will be embedded under the display and that there will not be a headphone jack.

Other rumored features include a 30 MP main camera, 4200 mAh battery, Snapdragon Qualcomm octa-core 3.2 GHz processor, and even 128 GB internal memory. However, one flaw in the design is that the images showed a micro USB 2.0 port. This completely contradicted other reports that it will have a USB Type-C port.
