Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ are now just a day away from their official unveiling, but the leaks refuse to stop. A fresh render has again surfaced of both the smartphones, along with them being spotted on AnTuTu. A whole new bunch of accessories that are expected to launch alongside have also been leaked online, leaving very little to the imagination. Finally, a new live photo compares the two smartphones side-by-side.
Starting with the official photo leak, this time WinFuture got hold of it, and it shows both the smartphones from front and back, standing next to each other. The photos sings the same tune as previous photo leaks, and it shows a large display in the front with no Home Button. The fingerprint scanner is at the back next to camera sensor.
AnTuTu benchmark leak shows four Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ devices with model numbers SM-G950F, SM-G950U, SM-G955F, and SM-G955U. These model numbers appear to stand for Exynos 8895 international, and US Snapdragon 835 variants of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. The benchmark reveals that the smartphones will come with an 8-megapixel selfie camera, 64GB of internal storage, and screen resolution is listed at 1080x1920, or 1080x2220. This could mean that full-HD would be the default screen mode, and an 18.5:9 ratio can be achieved in Settings, if the user so desired. The leak also confirms previously reported specifications, such as 64GB of inbuilt storage, 4GB of RAM, 12-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera.
Tipster Ice Universe has also shared a separate image of the Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S8+ side by side, with the latter looking significantly taller and narrower than the predecessor. The Galaxy S8+ is expected to sport a 6.2-inch display, and because of the extra display real estate in the front, the S7 Edge with its 5.5-inch display looks tiny in comparison.
Lastly, Winfuture has also leaked the plethora of accessories that Samsung plans to unveil alongside the smartphones. The report shared screenshots of accessories that will be sold on European retail sites. These include covers, chargers, and screen protectors, among others. The report has leaked the prices of these accessories as well, and the Samsung Clearview standing Cover, LED view cover and keyboard cover is priced at EUR 59.99 (roughly Rs. 4,200). The Samsung Alcantara Cover is priced at EUR 44.99 (roughly Rs. 3,200), while the silicone cover costs EUR 29.99 (roughly Rs. 2,200). The clear cover and the 2-piece cover are both going to be priced at EUR 19.99 (roughly Rs. 1,400). The screen protector will be priced at EUR 12.99 (roughly Rs. 900) and the wireless charger convertible will be priced at EUR 79.99 (roughly Rs. 5,600).
Other accessories previously leaked are the bundled AKG earphones, a continuum-like device called DeX, and 5100mAh power banks with fast charging. According to the rumour mill, the Samsung Galaxy S8 price will start at EUR 799 (roughly Rs. 56,000), Galaxy S8+ at EUR 899 (roughly Rs. 63,300), new Gear VR will cost EUR 129 (roughly Rs. 9,000), new Gear 360 will be priced at EUR 229 (roughly Rs. 16,100), and an accessory that could provide a Continuum-like called DeX could be priced at EUR 150 (roughly Rs. 10,500).
