Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S8, has leaked numerous times this week alone. The leaked photos have revealed almost everything about the device and its bezel-less design. Now, a new photo shared by @Onleaks compares the dimensions of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ to other existing smartphones in the market.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ will come with a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch QHD+ display that will be curved on its edges and feature very minimum bezels at the top and bottom.
Despite coming with a 5.8-inch display which clearly puts it into the phablet category, the Galaxy S8 is quite a bit smaller than the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 which featured a 5.7-inch curved display. Compared to Google’s Pixel handsets, the difference is even bigger. The Galaxy S8 is just a wee bit taller than the Google Pixel which comes with a 5-inch display.
Impressively enough, the Galaxy S8 is also smaller in dimension than the LG G6 which also features an almost bezel-less design with a 5.7-inch QHD+ 18:9 aspect ratio display.
As for the Galaxy S8+, it is bigger than all other handsets out there thanks to its 6.2-inch display but just by few millimetres. The Galaxy S8+ is 159mm tall, while the iPhone 7 Plus with its 5.5-inch display is 158.20mm tall.
The bezel-less design should help make the Galaxy S8 usable with one hand despite coming with a huge display.
