Samsung India has almost confirmed the existence of the Galaxy S8+ as its website now has a support page live for the smartphone. The page shows the upcoming flagship’s model number as SM-G955FD but does not share any further details.
The support page has come live shortly days after tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) shared the official logo for the Galaxy S8+. The logo confirmed that Samsung is all set to ditch “edge” branding this year and the phone will be replacing last year’s Galaxy S7 edge.

In another tweet, Blass emphasized on the fact that the upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be sporting 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED displays.
I’ve been seeing this misreported quite a bit, so, just to clarify:
GS8 – 5.8″ QHD
GS8+ – 6.2″ QHD
Both displays are, ofc, SAMOLED.
