What’s in Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones?

Samsung’s new Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones – officially announced today – look beautiful, and are loaded with new features that could make an upgrade worthwhile.

The handsets are superfast and 4K capable, and also herald the arrival of new technologies like Bluetooth 5 and LTE gigabit modems.

We take a look inside the handsets and see how they have improved from the Samsung Galaxy S7.

Screen size is bigger

The Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch screen, while the S8+ has a 6.2-inch screen, which are larger than the 5.5-inch S7 and the 5.7-inch Note 7. The screen resolution is 2960 x 1440 pixels, a slight uptick from S7’s 2560 x 1440-pixel screen. Samsung was able to increase the S8 screen size by cutting the home button, and also adding to the height. The screen area now constitutes 83 percent of the S8 front surfaces.
