A new report coming out of Korea claims that the battery capacities of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will be 3250 mAh and 3750 mAh. This is in contrary to the specifications which were recently leaked by the famous tipster Evan Blass.
Blass last week revealed all the major specifications about the device along with battery capacities of 3000 mAh for Galaxy S8 and 3500 mAh for Galaxy S8 Plus. To compare, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge has 3000 mAh and 3600 mAh battery capacities.
Now after the entire Note 7 episode last year with the official investigation results blaming the battery, Samsung is highly unlikely to play a gamble in terms of the battery. Further, given the fact that the new S8 will be of similar size as the S7 despite it rumoured to come equipped with a bigger 5.8-inch screen, the South Korean giant will presumably not try to fit in a larger battery in the same or similarly dimensioned shell.
Meanwhile, just to brief you about other specifications which were revealed by Evan Blass last week, the new S8 will come in in two variants, a 5.8-inch and a 6.2-inch variant both of which will sport a QHD Super AMOLED display coming in with an aspect ratio of 18:5:9. On the inside, the South Korean giant is expected to pack in either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC or it’s own home-grown Exynos chip. Interestingly, the device is expected to come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. For the optics, both the variants will come with a 12-megapixel rear facing the camera with f/1.7 aperture and 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The camera is said to come with a bunch of new features including the recently rumoured visual search capability. For the battery, the 5.8-inch variant is likely to come with 3000 mAh battery while the 6.2-inch variant will house a 3500 mAh battery. Contrary to previous rumours, the Galaxy S8 will come with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Regarding the price and launch, the official unveiling is expected to take place on March 29 with the release scheduled for sometime in April. The 5.8-inch variant is expected to sell for Euro 799 (approx. Rs 58,000) while the 6.2-inch variant will sell for Euro 899 (approx. Rs 65,000).
Moreover, as per the latest leak from Roland Quandt of winfuture.de, Samsung will also launch a pair of wireless headphones along with the much leaked Samsung Galaxy S8. Roland, on twitter, posted – “New Samsung Level In ANC wireless headphones with Active Noise Cancelling are coming with the Samsung Galaxy S8 – EO-IG950B.”
