Samsung Galaxy S8: Leaked image gives clearest look yet

Samsung Galaxy S8 date

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 isn’t due to get its official unveiling until later this month. But a newly leaked image has given us the clearest indication yet of how it'll look, ahead of its appearance on shop shelves.

Sourced by renowned smartphone-leaker Evan Blass and posted on Twitter, the photo appears to be an official render of Samsung’s long–awaited new flagship and adds ballast to rumours that the Galaxy S8 will not feature a physical home button.

That means the screen dominates the front of the handset, with thin bezels at the top and bottom and, crucially, a curved display.

Blass’s leak doesn’t reveal any more details, although the Galaxy S8 is expected to ship with the same camera technology as last year’s Galaxy S7, as well as eyeball recognition security and customisable home, app and back buttons.

Samsung chose not to unveil the phone at this week’s Mobile World Congress, allowing the likes of the new LG G6 and Huawei P10 to bask in the limelight.

Instead, it simply confirmed that its next–generation flagship smartphone would be detailed at an event in New York on 29th March.

The Galaxy S8 is expected to hit shelves in late April, with Samsung keen to ensure the Galaxy S8 does not suffer from the same battery woes as the discontinued Galaxy Note 7.
