Samsung's effort to keep its upcoming Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone secret is an abysmal exercise owing to the numerous leaks that have fueled the rumour mills since last year. But the final nail in the coffin is perhaps a comprehensive list of leaks by industry veteran Eldar Murtazin which tells almost everything there is to know about the upcoming devices. As expected, the Galaxy S8 will launch in two variants- One featuring a 5.7-inch display and the Galaxy S8 Plus sporting a 6.2-inch display. Yet, despite sporting bigger display the phones will retain dimensions similar to last year's Galaxy S7 owing to a larger screen-to-body ratio. Murtazin mentions that the Galaxy S8 will have dimensions of 140.14x72.2x7.3mm making it shorter and thinner than the Galaxy S7 Edge while the Galaxy S8 Plus with the 6.2-inch will have dimensions of 152.38x78.51x7.9mm. This will of course be bigger than the Galaxy S7 Edge but despite the larger display, it will much more compact that the Galaxy Note 7 which had dimensions of 153.5x73.9x7.9mm. Both handsets will sport Samsung's new AMOLED displays, although Murtazin couldn't confirm whether Samsung is ditching the physical home button or not. Rumours have been rife about Samsung embedding the fingerprint sensor under the display or at the back and doing away with the home button to make more space for the screen. Also, just like the Galaxy Note 7, both variants will feature the iris scanner for more security. Coming to the hardware, Murtazin states the phones might be powered by either the Snapdragon 835 or the Exynos 8895, both built on a 10nm assembly process. This will be coupled with 6GB of RAM for the 64GB base variant. He said nothing about the rumoured 8GB RAM variant. The battery on the upcoming Galaxy S8 will be the same as last years and the phone will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack. USB-C port and MicroSD card slot will also be present. Surprisingly missing in the leak is information about the camera. Samsung is expected to put a dual-camera stack on the bigger Galaxy S8 Plus variant. In addition, Murtazin reported the device will come running Android 7.1.1 with TouchWiz UI on top. The devices will have Samsung Pay, Samsung Cloud and the highly anticipated AI assistant named Bixby. There will also be a dedicated Game Mode which might be the rumoured Beast Mode. Also, the phones will feature a Windows Continuum-like feature that will allow the phone to connect to a monitor for desktop mode. The leaks also state that Samsung will price the devices quite aggressively in the market with the base Galaxy S8 priced around $700 (roughly Rs 47,600) and the Galaxy S8 Plus priced around $850 (roughly Rs 57,800). It is likely that the devices will be priced similar to the Galaxy S7 models when they launched last year. Yet, despite spilling the beans on almost everything, Murtazin had no clue about when the device will come to the masses. There have been rumours that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017 in Barcelona next month. But Murtazin expects the phones to ship sometime late April.
