Evan Blass has been busy today. He has leaked press renders of both the LG G6 and also the Huawei P10. Not finished there, here has also leaked out a specs sheet of the other flagship set to be released in the coming weeks, the Samsung Galaxy S8+.
According to the specs sheet revealed by Evan Blass, the Galaxy S8+ will arrive in two versions, a curved display version and a flat/rectangular display version. The curved version will be a 6.1in display while the flat verison will be a 6.2in display, both massive quad HD+ Super AMOLED displays. There will be a 12MP “Dual Pixel” rear camera and a 8MP front facing camera with iris scanning capabilities.

The Galaxy S8+ will only be IP68 dust and water resistant. There will be 64GB of on-board storage and 4GB of RAM to keep it all ticking along smoothly. It will also include wireless charging capabilities (Are Samsung the only manufacturer to still have this?). All these specs seem to be consistent with previous leaks and considering the source is @EvLeaks we will go on the assumption that it is legit.
Nothing in the specs really blows me away, although with a display this large we can see why Samsung are doing away with the hardware capacitive buttons. Imagine trying to fit a 6.2in display in a device that is NOT a tablet while including capacitive buttons. Hopefully Samsung will do something innovative with their software as they really need to come out swinging after the Note 7 fiasco. They will be making an annoucement regarding the Galaxy S8 announcement at MWC this week.
Do you agree? What are your thoughts on this leak and phone? Is it your next?
