Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus to have Unlocked variant (SM-G950/5U) for USA, UA string reveals

We just got another confirmation of Galaxy S8 model numbers via user agent string of the two Samsung devices by that model no. This also gets us kind-of confirmation that just like the Galaxy S7, Samsung plans to sell the Galaxy S8 as unlocked device too in USA, which would work with all major carriers: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.

While the user agent string doesn’t reveal a lot like UAprof would, but you can find those two user agent profiles that lists SM-G950U and SM-G955U devices below.

Both of the SM-G950U and SM-G955U UA string show the device running Android 7.0 OS, with build bring NRD90M, while only the Galaxy S8 Plus string (SM-G955U) shows mention of Samsung browser too.

The latest rumors about the Galaxy S8 revealed the March 29 release date, but you can find all the info about Galaxy S8 (and its sibling Galaxy S8 Plus) here: Galaxy S8 Specs | Release date.
