Mobile World Congress is currently underway in Barcelona and our team is there covering some major announcements. However, we’ve known for long while that one device wouldn’t be present at the trade conference, and that’s Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8.
But as luck and leaks would have it, that doesn’t mean we don’t get to see the new phone at all.
Thanks to a new leak from Evan Blass, we now get another detailed look at the long-awaited flagship. The image, which seems to be a press render from Samsung, shows the Galaxy S8 in its full glory, including the edge-to-edge curved screen, the lack of a physical home button, and the top cameras and sensors on the device. The image is very much in line with previous rumors, reports and real-life device leaks, all showing the same design.
In terms of specs the Galaxy S8 is expected to launch in two variations with differing screen sizes. The bigger of the two, the S8 plus is rumored to come with a 6.2-inch QuadHD+ Super AMOLED display. The second model will be slightly smaller at 5.8-inches. Both devices will feature curved-screen designs, as well as be powered by the Exynos 8895 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoCs.
Since this info isn’t official just yet, you might want to take it with a grain of salt. However, we won’t have too long to wait until the S8 gets unveiled as the ceremony is expected to take place on March 29th, a date that the leaked image also alludes to.
