Samsung does this because the Snapdragon chipset seems to handle United States networks better.

It's thought the amount of memory tucked inside the phone will also be different depending on where you live. Here's our Samsung Galaxy S8 versus Samsung Galaxy S7 head-to-head.

Speaking of which, although nearly everything regarding the upcoming Galaxy S8 has been leaked already, pricing was still a mystery.

Blass has to his credit several leaks that made it to the announcement stage, the recent one being the confirmation on the European availability of the Nokia 3310 along with its price. According to the leaker, Samsung is set to increase the asking price of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus over its 2016 models to €799 and €899 respectively. If this turns out to be the official pricing, we must say that it's a huge amount of money.


It's now unclear if or why Samsung wouldn't feature the 835 processor in every model of the S8 but it's possible enough supply and cost could be a factor.

Evan Blass first tweeted out an image which shows both the Galaxy S8 as well as the Galaxy S8 Plus in various different colors.

At this point, anyone who's been following the latest mobile news would know that, but what they don't know is how the Galaxy S8 would look alongside Samsung's current flagship, the Galaxy S7 Edge and its closest rival iPhone 7. And of course, minimal bezels. From these numbers, it looks like the variant powered by the Exynos 8895 chipset performs marginally better than the one with the Snapdragon 835.

As per the imaging department, we are not sure about the megapixel count yet.


The latest leak related to the Samsung phones is related to the European prices for the devices. The device runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Coming to the batteries, the S8 features a 3,000mAh unit while the bigger S8+ would feature a 3,500mAh unit. This meant that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was ahead of its time back when it was launched.

So, what do you guys think? Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is predicted to launch along with its sibling Samsung Galaxy S8+.
