Samsung Galaxy S8 rocks 5.8-inch 1440x2960 display

Samsung's Galaxy S8 is ramping up to have the best display on a smartphone yet

The new leaks of the Samsung Galaxy S8 saw us seeing a possible move by Samsung to use a weird 18:5:9 aspect ratio - a big shift, and now we know the resolution: 1440x2960.




Samsung will use its latest Super AMOLED technology, with a 5.8-inch display that should have curves at the sides of it on the S8 edge model. There's also a rumored 6.2-inch variant, that would see it being even bigger than Samsung's super-popular, but recent tragic Note 7.


Both smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon 835 processor, built on the 10nm process. Inside, we should expect 4GB of REAM, 64GB of on-board storage which is expandable, a refined 12-megapixel camera, USB Type-C, and a virtual AI assistant.


Expect an announcement during Samsung Unpacked in NYC on March 29, with the Galaxy S8 and S8 edge expected to hit on April 21.
