On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus will feature a 6.2-inch Quad HD+Super AMOLED display. The Galaxy S8+ is simply a larger Galaxy S8 with a bigger battery. It has got an aspect ratio of 18:5.9. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ also come with Samsung's trademark always-on functionality. There is 64 GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded up to 256 GB with the help of the microSD card.

Both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ come with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, an iris scanner and facial recognition for biometric security. LCD panels usually have three sub pixels (red, blue, green) but with the Galaxy S8's OLED panel, you have two sub pixels - red-green and blue-green. There is an option to clean out unnecessary background apps, while another button lets you choose from various power modes, which includes optimized, game, performance, and entertainment. Samsung Galaxy S8+ runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
