The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have been leaking left and right lately, giving us a pretty good idea of what the new Android flagships will look like. One question that some folks might still have, though, is how Samsung’s new phones compare to other devices in terms of size. Now we’ve got the answer.
Renders of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ next to other notable flagship smartphones have leaked out, courtesy of well-known leaker @OnLeaks. His images show the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ next to devices like the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy Note 7. Also included are the dimensions of each device.
Nothing is official until Samsung says it is, so we’ll have to wait until we actually get the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in our hands before we can really do any size comparisons, but the sizes of the devices in these images seem pretty nice. The Galaxy S8 is rumored to have a 5.8-inch display, but it’s smaller than the Note 7 and its 5.7-inch screen. And then there’s the Galaxy S8+ and its 6.2-inch display, which is less than a millimeter taller than the iPhone 7 Plus and its 5.5-inch screen.
It’s expected that with the Galaxy S8 and S8+, Samsung will abandon the physical home button and capacitive keys that it’s used on all of its previous Galaxy S flagships. That’ll certainly help keep the size of the devices down, but it’ll still be impressive if Samsung is indeed able to make the Galaxy S8 and S8+ as small as this leak suggests that they’ll be.
