Samsung Galaxy S8 press image leaks, shows off gorgeous design

by Brandon Russell | February 28, 2017

A picture shared by Evan Blass on Twitter appears to reveal our best look yet at the Galaxy S8.

Unlike the low-quality leaks we’ve seen over the past few weeks, the newest image looks like a render straight from Samsung. Don’t be surprised to see this very photo—or something very close to it—during Samsung’s presentation on March 29.

Speaking of March 29, that’s the very date that appears on the lock screen of the render. That’s not a coincidence.

The new image once again confirms the Galaxy S8 won’t feature a home button, instead opting for Android’s built-in software navigation. The screen appears to be virtually edge-to-edge, much like the LG G6, along with curved edges.

The lock screen also appears to feature a tab on the right side, which will likely invoke Samsung’s edge shortcuts.

It looks beautiful

The Galaxy S8 is shaping up to be not just the best-looking Android device on the market, but the most powerful, too. We’re expecting the handset to sport a Snapdragon 835 chip, 12-megapixel Dual Pixel camera, IP68 dust and water resistance, an iris scanner, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of expandable storage.

There will reportedly be a Galaxy S8 Plus, too, which is expected to sport a 6.2-inch QHD+ display and the same specs as the smaller Galaxy S8 model.

Samsung will unveil both phones on March 29, allegedly followed by an April 21 release.
