Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, the company’s upcoming flagship smartphones, have reportedly cleared FCC certification. If the report is accurate, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will come alive under these models: SM-G950U, SM-G950U1 and SM-G950W. The Samsung Galaxy S8+, on the other hand, will be based on these model numbers: SM-G955U, SM-G955U1 and SM-G955W.
In other news, we have also come across yet another report saying that both the phones will be backed by facial recognition in addition to the fingerprint scanner. It is also expected of Samsung to offer iris scanner, which we saw previously on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
Earlier this week, we also saw some live images and videos making rounds online suggesting that both the handsets flaunt a dual-edged display. We also saw an alleged press image of the Samsung Galaxy S8 recently according to which the device may not come with a home button.

Last month, a well-known tipster pulled the wraps off a complete spec sheet of the Samsung Galaxy S8+. It sports a 6.2-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) + Super AMOLED screen. It packs 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.
Concerning optics, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ houses a 12MP primary camera at the rear as well as an 8MP secondary camera up front. It also bundles features, i.e., Iris Scanner, Wireless Charging, Samsung Pay, IP68 Dust and Water Resistant.
Some of the previous reports point that Samsung Galaxy S8+ would be introduced in two variants — Global as well as the U.S. only. The U.S. variant is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s recently announced flagship Snapdragon 835 process. The global variant, on the other hand, would be powered by Samsung’s Exynos chip.
