Galaxy S8 Leaked
Samsung Galaxy S8 is all set launch at the company’s Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event on March 29. The South Korean company has been widely rumored to refresh the design of the Galaxy S8 series, and one of the big features expected to debut on the new premium smartphones is Samsung’s yet-to-be-announced virtual assistant Bixby. Now, a new leaked press render of the Galaxy S8 claims to show the new Bixby button. This is the first time that the rumored AI physical button present on the Samsung Galaxy S8 has been leaked in a render.
The new leaked image also shows long and narrow display on the Samsung Galaxy S8. This tips that the company may adopt the 18:9 aspect ratio, rather than the current industry standard of 16:9. LG’s new G6 also sports a 18:9 aspect ratio and bears a 5.7-inch Full Vision display with a QHD+ (1440×2880 pixels) resolution.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is rumored to ditch its physical home button at the front and the latest leaked render again reiterates this. The iris scanner can be seen placed above the display alongside the front-facing camera. The new leaked render again shows that the upcoming Galaxy S8 sport a refreshed look with near bezel-less display.
For specifications, the Galaxy S8 is widely rumored to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. The handset is said to pack 64GB inbuilt storage while come with support for expandable storage via microSD card (up to 128GB). The Samsung Galaxy S8 is likely to sport 3250mAh battery. Previous reports indicate the smartphone will only go on sale by April 21. Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is rumored to cost EUR 100 (roughly Rs. 7,300) more than its predecessor.
