Has Samsung just revealed the Galaxy S8?


Samsung are expected to reveal the new Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge at an “Unpacked” launch event in April rather than at the Mobile World Congress which takes place in February.

It is fair to say big things are expected from the Korean giant with the S8 predicted to have a bigger and brighter screen, an improved camera as well as the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.

More and more images of the devices are appearing all the time but the latest ones appearing from accessory retailer Mobile Fun appear to show the S8 housed inside a clear case.

It is unclear at this stage if the images are real or based upon reports but they do show the device having the dual curved display and also that the home button has been removed with Samsung favouring virtual buttons.

However, while supposed leaked images have been circulating, it seems Samsung may actually be intent on leaking the S8 themselves.

On Monday, a new pair of promotional videos from Samsung Display showed off the firm’s new AMOLED panels, which are expected to feature in the Galaxy S8.

The video ends with the new panels morphing into a super slim, almost bezeless smartphone, that does not include a home button and which looks very similar to the numerous reports on the Galaxy S8 received over the past couple of months.

Is this the new Galaxy S8?

Other rumours than are circulating suggest that Samsung will NOT be ditching the headphone port as images appearing on the tech blog Slashleaks clearly show the existence of the 3.5mm port.

Further news has been coming out from Samsung regarding the Android Nougat S7 Edge update which is finally being pushed out.

This update will combine various other updates and is expected to be available in the forthcoming weeks with beta testers naturally getting to trial the update first.
