March 29th is fast approaching, and the leaks for Samsung’s upcoming flagships keep on coming. Today we’ve had specs confirmed and now you can start to size up the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ against each other and other phones.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are packing 5.7″ and 6.2″ screens respectively, but with the infinity edge display it appears that Samsung has packed these displays into a tiny body. You can get a good idea of the size of the phones in this shot of them side by side:

This gives you an idea of the size next to each other, but what about relative to other devices? There’s also a way to check that out with leaker @onleaks releasing a comparison of different devices based on known devices sizes and leaked information from case makers about the Galaxy S8/S8+.

The impressive takeaway for me from this is the Galaxy S8+ with its massive screen is still thinner and microscopically shorter than the Nexus 6P.

It’s going to be a big day March 29th (March 30th here in Australia) but at the rate we’re going there may not be much left to announce on the day.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Will the S8Note be as big as the S8+, if not I’ll settle for the bigger 8+.

Awwwwwww. I was hoping that the larger model would be similar to the Nexus 6’s width.

that’s so true. Me too. I love a wider phone say 80mms +

Do we know if either has optical image stabilisation (ois)? I remember that was a main difference between the large and larger iPhones…


I really don’t know if I should get the S8+ or wait for the Note 8. First world problems I know 🙂

So, which of the two are people interested in? Is the S8+ too big?

i’m interested in the smaller S8. I sorta wanted something the same size as the S7 normal, but it looks like the S8 is going to be about 1cm taller… means it won’t fit neatly in my jeans front pockets any more 🙁
