As the days go by, more and more rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 have been surfacing on the Internet. Some reports point to its possible release delay due to manufacturing issues concerning its main processor, the Snapdragon 835.

Now, new reports suggest that the much hyped phone will come in two sizes, a standard and a plus model. According to the Chinese microblogging site, Weibo, Samsung will be releasing a bigger size Galaxy S8 next year. This will be in addition to the now purported 5.1-inch curved display Galaxy S8.

The report also alludes that the bigger model will have a display size of 6 inches. Just like its smaller brother, it will feature a curved display design. However, the thing that makes it stand out is the system memory that it will pack.

Much like Apple?s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the Galaxy S8 will also be available in standard and plus versions.

While this may come as a surprise, it is still undoubtedly a rumor. There is no evidence?that supports the claims, as Samsung has increased its efforts in keeping company secrets from leaking.
