Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

In this comparison, we compare the to-be launched Samsung Galaxy S8 and its bigger sibling Galaxy S8+. Although we do not have all the specs right now, but the biggest difference between the two devices would be the screen size.

The Galaxy S8 is said to 5.8-inches whereas the Galaxy S8+ will sport a slightly larger display at 6.2-inches. Both of them, however, will keep the display resolution at QHD+.

Another difference might be the battery capacity and the Galaxy S8+ will house a slightly larger battery at 3500mAh compared to 3000mAh on S8.
