As a supplemental answer to what @beeshyams already wrote...
S7 comes with a EP-TA20 series charger, capable of QC 2.0, rated for 9V 1.67A or 5V 2A.
On the other hand, S8 comes with a EP-TA200 series charger, which is near identical to the former one, except that its USB port has been moved from the side to the top, and comes with a USB-C cable by default.
Safe to say that as long as you get the USB-C cable right, the two makes no difference.

....You can charge your phone using any Samsung-approved wall charger, but charging speeds may vary depending on the charger....
Further this reddit claims that S7 and S8 use the same charger
I am not sure what is the difference in charging speeds
In the absence of specs , it is not possible to say for sure, but I wouldn't hesitate since both chargers are Samsung and apparently similar as pointed in the reddit.
