Samsung Galaxy S8 Image Leaks Reveal Dual-Curved Bezel-Less Display

Mar 01, 2017 05:13 AM EST

With the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain, already open, Samsung device enthusiasts whose appetites were whet for the unveiling of the Galaxy Tab S3 and Galaxy Book were further teased with the leaked image of another flagship. Evan Blass, a reliable leakster, tweeted on Wednesday an image believed to be that of the much-anticipated Galaxy S8. He actually did not state it would be the next smartphone flagship.

Dual-Curved Screen

Instead, Evan Blass captioned his tweet: “I think this is what you’ve been waiting for,” GSM Arena reports. It could be the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus. The image is that of a dual-curved bezel-less display with an iris scanner on the top and volume control on the left side and power control on the right side. Below the volume rocker is another button believed to be the Bixby artificial intelligence button.

Since the leaked image lacks a physical button on the front and based on previous information available, all specs indicate it is the Galaxy S8 which Samsung will officially launch on March 29, along with the Galaxy S8 Plus. Techno Buffalo points out that the leak from Evan Blass appears to be like a render from the South Korean tech giant, unlike the low-quality leaks released the past few weeks. One more indicator it is one of the two flagships to be unveiled by the end of the month is the date March 29 on the render’s lock screen.

Best-Looking & Most Powerful Android Phone

Besides being the best-looking Android gadget on the market, the Galaxy S8 appears to be the most powerful too with an anticipated Snapdragon 835 chip, 12MP Dual Pixel shooter, IP68 certification, and iris scanner. The phone is expected to sport 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. The Galaxy S8 Plus, on the other hand, is expected to feature a 6.2-inc QHD+ screen but with the same specs as the Galaxy S8.

According to Gadgets 360, Samsung would unveil the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus at the Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event on March 29. Less than a month after the launch, the two flagships would go on sale by April 21.
