The Samsung Galaxy S8 hype train is running full steam ahead and rumors are coming in fast.

We already know some of the S8's likely specifications, thanks to a number of timely "reveals." First, was this series of Samsung AMOLED display ads, which showed an unnamed handset that suspiciously resembled what the Galaxy S8 is supposed to be.

Next were tweets from reputable leaker Evan Blass showing alleged images of an actual Galaxy S8 handset and confirms the presence of a headphone jack.

Now, Samsung may have inadvertently confirmed one of the top rumors floating around. An official Galaxy S8 support page on Samsung's India website went online on Monday.

Currently, this support page is no longer available but it may have confirmed the existence of two Galaxy S8 versions, the regular Galaxy S8 and a larger Galaxy S8 Plus.

According to Forbes, the model number listed on the support page is SM-G955FD and pundits are convinced that this refers to the Galaxy S8 Plus.

With this "leak," it's more than likely that the new Samsung Galaxy S8 will come in 5-inch and 6-inch display versions.

What we know so far

So, stitching these leaks and rumors together here's what we know so far:

Newer AMOLED screen technology might debut on the new Galaxy and the larger version may even have a higher resolution 4K display with astounding pixel density.
