As we all know, Samsung is believed to launch two variants of its next flagship, the Galaxy S8. The second variant, called the Samsung Galaxy S8+ was earlier rumored to bear SM-G955 series as the model number. And now, a support page for a smartphone with model number SM-G955FD has already gone live on the Indian website.
This, in all its likelihood, suggests that the model number in question belongs to the Galaxy S8+. According to Samsung’s internal naming conventions, the 'FD’ in the model number represents the dual-SIM version (global). Further, it also indicates that the Indian version of Galaxy S8+ will include an Exynos chipset, possibly the octa-core Exynos 8895. This Samsung Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge also came with the Exynos chipset for the Indian market.
The US variant, though will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset.
Just a couple of days ago, Evan Blass, widely know as @evleaks revealed the logo of Samsung’s upcoming flagship confirming that the second variant of the Galaxy S8 will be called the Samsung Galaxy S8+ indeed.
There have been numerous leaks on the internet, all of which suggest that the Galaxy S8 (and the S8+) will be one hell of a smartphone.
