Specs comparison: Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge vs. Galaxy S8/S8+

Samsung’s finally taken the wraps off the much-anticipated Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ — and naturally, we want to see how they compare to their predecessors. Right off the bat, there appears to be a couple of notable improvements, including larger displays and a faster processor.

It’s unclear whether the upgraded internals alone will make it worth the upgrade (you’ll have to wait for our full review to find out), but in the meantime, they’re the best way to judge how much of an improvement the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are. For more details on their specs, click here.
