This is the new Samsung Galaxy S8


Two new photos claim to show the much anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8.

The first of the photos was posted on Twitter by prolific tech tipster Evan Blass and tallies with the sneak preview Samsung teased at the recent Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona.

Unlike its predecessor the Galaxy S7, the S8 has no home button but does still sport the same wrap around screen design.

Earlier this week, Samsung said it would break with recent tradition and would not be unveiling a new flagship smartphone at Mobile World Congress instead delaying the official unveiling until March 29.

The delayed launch follows the disastrous release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which had to be discontinued after a fault caused the battery to overheat and explode.

As well as dropping the home button, other rumours surrounding the S8 claim it will include a new pressure sensitive screen that may also be 4K.

Meanwhile, another photo leaked by tech site BGR claims to show the new 5.8 inch Galaxy S8 when it is turned on.

Like the previous photo, the screen appears to take up almost the entire front of the phone.

Another thing of significance is that navigational buttons appear to sport a slightly different design, although the overall UI looks fairly familiar.

As mentioned, Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy S8 and the 6.2 inch Galaxy S8+ at an event in New York on March 29.
