Numerous images have been leaked so far of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8. And all those provided us some idea about the design and impressive features of the device. With the launching date of Galaxy S8 getting closer, a new image of S8 has again surfaced. The new leaked image is however of a working Galaxy S8 device that shows up the placement of the on-screen buttons. The leaked image is not very clear, but still, we could manage to get an idea from it. The recently leaked image indicates most of the previous rumors to be true.
The image could be either of the Galaxy S8 or else of the Galaxy S8+. However, the most interesting stuff that is noticeable in the image is the placement of on-screen buttons. The on-screen buttons are located in the bottom part of the screen. This allows users to navigate throughout the interface. The back button is situated on the right side. The app edge interface is also seen clearly in this image which depicts it is being inherited from Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
The leaked image again indicates there is no physical or capacitive button in the device confirming all the previous rumors to be true. The display stretches from edge to edge while a curve is very prominent. There is the right amount of cutout at the top most part of the front facing camera, iris scanner, and other sensors. A closer look at the leaked image also reveals the power or lock key is located on the right side of the device.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be launched on March 29th. And the shipment will be started by Samsung in April. However, the exact launch date will be announced by Samsung at the upcoming MWC 2017 that is set to happen on 26th February.
Samsung will bring their upcoming device in two main variants, Galaxy S8 and S8+. Both the devices are reported to carry same features and specifications except some minor changes. Both will have the QHD Super AMOLED display of 2560 x 1440 resolutions. Snapdragon 835 SoC processor will power them. But some regions will get it with Exynos 9810 processor. The devices will sport fingerprint scanner at the back side next to the rear camera. And finally, both of them will come running on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
However, as of now try to accept these features, specifications, and leaks with a pinch of salt and wait until 26th February, as Samsung might reveal the real story during this MWC event.
