Ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus release, the device which has been rumored to be coming into the market by April during an event organized by the South Korean company has been seen on FCC certification website.
As we inch closer to the release of the device, the devices which will be coming into the market with the model numbers SM-G950U and SM-G955U for the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus respectively will be sporting a 3,000 mAh battery for the S8 and 3,500 mAh for the S8 Plus device. The U in the model numbers, however, indicates that the devices spotted are the Unlocked versions of the upcoming flagship device from Samsung.
The devices in latest information have however been revealed to be unveiled on March 29 at a private event organized by the tech company in new York City and London. Rumors, however, indicate that the device may be made available globally as from April 21 although there are a few reports that the release date may have been pushed back by a week for an international launch.
Latest leaked images have however suggested that the device which will come with 3,500 mAh battery and 3,000 mAh battery for the Galaxy S8 Plus and the S8 variant was said to have passed certification by FCC and thus suggests that the Federal Communications Commission in the US has Okayed the device for US distribution ahead of release.
Recall that the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus passed through the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) some weeks ago in anticipation of its release.
The batteries loaded on the device which was rumored that Samsung following the Note 7 fiasco had contacted LG, and Sony for its production was seen to have been made in Korea and assembled in Vietnam by Samsung SDI, an in-house company which was rumored to be incapable of delivering the units needed by the company ahead of its release as reports indicated that Samsung might be planning as much as 12 million units f the device for international launching.
However, what we knew so far is that the device may come with a 6.2-inch display with rumors holding that it may most likely feature a screen resolution of 2960 x 2400 pixels.
Along with the much famed Samsung AI Assistant, Bixby, which will be coming with the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus, the device will also be expected to hit the market with an 8MegaPixel front camera and a 12MegaPixel rear snapper according to a KGI analyst.
