Samsung has released unlocked models of its Galaxy S8 and its larger partner the Galaxy S8 Plus. They are only differentiated by their screen size and battery capacity, come in at 5.8-inches and 6.2-inches with extra-tall 18.5:9 aspect ratio displays. That battery difference is pretty subtle: 3500mAh for the Galaxy S8+ and 3000mAh for the standard Galaxy S8.
Both the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will be the first smartphones available with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor. Both have 4GB of RAM, and come with 64GB of internal storage. You can expand it to more than 256GB thanks to MicroSD card support. Android 7.0 Nougat is the operating system, with TouchWiz layered over. The 12-megapixel, f/1.7 rear camera hasn’t changed at all from the S7. The front-facing camera has been upgraded from 5 megapixels to 8 megapixels with an aperture of f/1.7, so you can expect a slight bump in quality for selfies and "groufies." The S8 also had some fun Snapchat-like stickers and emoji you could place and resize directly within the camera app itself, which may appeal to a young crowd.
The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are both available to pre-order from Wednesday 29 March, with early buyers set to receive their handset on 20 April. The smartphones will be available to all from 28 April. The S8 is listed at $724.99, and the S8 Plus will sell unlocked for $824.99.
