New photo of Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ leaked online, again


A new leaked photo give us the first look of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ side by side.

The photos come from tech blog Slash Leaks who say they obtained the images from an anonymous source.

The images show two large smartphones with big wraparound screens and tiny bezels, which would seem to confirm the previous image of the Samsung Galaxy S8 that was leaked by serial tech tipster Evan Blass last week.

The latest images also show that the new handsets do not appear to include a fingerprint scanner or a physical home button on the front of the device.

Perhaps the most notable thing to take from the images is the sheer size of each handset.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 will reportedly include a 5.8 inch display, while the Galaxy S8+ will include an even larger 6.2 inch screen. However, the smaller bezels should make them feel a little smaller than the actual display size would suggest.

Previous rumours claim the new handsets will include an iris scanner, the latest Snapdargon 835 processors and Samsung’s new digital assistant named Bixby, a curved OLED screen and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Both phones will be unveiled at Samsung’s ‘Galaxy Unpacked’ event on March 29 and are expected to go on sale by the end of April.

Typically the launch of a new Galaxy S handset is Samsung’s biggest launch of the year and is normally the leading device to sport Google Android operating system.

However, the release of the this year’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ are doubly important for Samsung as they will be the first high end smartphone released by the firm since the disastrous Galaxy Note 7.
