Who else other than Evan Blass can leak the first press render of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 flagship phone?
The famous leakster didn’t tell if the published image belongs to the Galaxy S8 or the larger version, Galaxy S8+. From the image, we can see that the Samsung flagship will be having the Iris scanner, volume buttons on the left side, power button on the right side, and the Bixby AI button on the left side, just below the volume rocker.
This image also confirms that Samsung dropped the physical Home button on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ phones. As both of the Samsung Galaxy S8 phone versions will be sporting the curved edge design, we cannot really tell which version appears on the leaked press render.
Samsung Galaxy S8 release date, specs, features and everything you should know
Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagships on March 29 during a special event the company will hold in New York. This claim was confirmed by Samsung when holding an announcement at the Mobile World Congress. Samsung choose not to launch the Samsung Galaxy S8 at MWC but instead decide to receive an award for the Galaxy S7 as “Best smartphone at MWC 2017”, the award is interpreted as the best smartphone of MWC 2016, but Samsung chose to advertise it this way and created confusion. It seemed like Samsung was sending the message of “my last year’s generation generation is better than your current” to their competitors.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will both be running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and sport Quad HD displays with an aspect ratio of 18.5:8 and screen resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels. Sizes of versions will be 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch.
Samsung Galaxy S8+ specs leaked in exclusive renders a few days ago where most of the phone’s features and specifications were cleared. During the first week of February, we might have seen the first image of the Galaxy S8, and it came in the form of half-display and bottom ports.
