We’ve seen numerous alleged images of Samsung Galaxy S8, but none of them has been close to what has just come out in terms of clarity and genuineness.
Thanks to renowned leaker Evan Blass, we now have our eyes on the 2017 Samsung Galaxy S8 and for sure, this thing is a real beauty as far as the design is concerned. All the rumors that have been doing rounds with respect to the design are very true.
The phone has a curved edge-to-edge screen, no physical home button and it is clear that there will be an iris scanner on the front panel alongside the usual selfie camera. Iris scanner and selfie shooter are located on the upper bezel, which is also very thin – thin enough not to accommodate the usual “SAMSUNG” logo that appears on other Sammy flagships. Since the bottom bezel has no button, it is also thinner than any of its predecessors.

Another thing worth noting about this leaked Samsung Galaxy S8 image is the presence of an extra button on the left-hand side of the phone. While the layout of buttons remains the same where the volume rocks are on the left and power button is on the right, the former gets an extra button that is believed to be associated with the Bixby AI digital assistant. This button will be used to bring the assistant to life. You’ll notice that the body of the leaked Samsung Galaxy S8 has beautifully rounded edges, just like the display screen itself.
The image only gives us a clear view of the front part, but there’s nothing on the rear part, which is expected to house the main camera, dual-tone LED flash and the fingerprint scanner. But since the phone is just weeks away from being unveiled, we should keep getting more details as the March 29 launch date draws closer. Stay tuned!
