After weeks of leaks, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have finally been officially revealed at Samsung's Unpacked 2017 event.

Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S8 and S8+ today at their Unpacked 2017 event. The specifications for these phones are hardly a secrete though. After weeks of daily leaks, the Galaxy S8 devices are almost exactly what we thought they'd be. Large, 5.8" and 6.2" curved display devices with the latest processors and camera lenses, and the next generation of TouchWiz on top of Android 7.0. Samsung removed their signature physical home button that has been a part of Galaxy phones since the original S, making this generation particularly unique. Without a home button, the fingerprint reader had to be relegation to the rear, alongside the camera. Here's a quick list of what's been upgraded:

  • 5.8" 2960x1440 (S8) and 6.2" 2960x1440 (S8+) Displays
  • 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage 
  • Snapdragon 835 (US) and Exynos 8895 (International)
  • 12MP with OIS rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera
  • 3000mAh (S8) and 3500mAh (S8+) batteries 
  • 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0 mm (S8) and 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm (S8+)
  • Android 7.0 Nougat with TouchWiz 
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • Black, Blue, Orchid Grey, Silver, Gold

Like its predecessor, the S8 is IP68 water and dust resistant, includes NFC and MST for contactless payments, and supports wireless charging. Unlike several other 2017 flagships, the Galaxy S8 retains its 3.5mm headphone jack. The S8 is being released in five colors on April 21st, with pre-orders starting tomorrow. Who's in?
