Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus: Full specifications, features and price

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus was launched last March and expected to be released this April. It has almost the same specifications and features with the Samsung Galaxy S8, where the only noticeable and visible difference is their screen size. We are not going to do a quick review of the Galaxy S8 Plus because it would be redundant to do so because as we mentioned earlier, it has the same features with the Galaxy S8.

We’ve already posted a quick review of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and you can find it here: Samsung Galaxy S8 – Full specifications, features and price.
